MTV 'Teen Mom'

Allegedly Choked

by Her Mother

1/18/2010 8:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

MTV 'Teen Mom' Allegedly Choked by Her MotherOne of the young mothers from the MTV reality show "Teen Mom" was allegedly choked and then hit by her 54-year-old mom this weekend -- and mom is now facing domestic violence charges.

The Council Bluffs Police Department in Iowa tells TMZ Debra Danielson -- the mother of 18-year-old "Teen Mom" Farrah Abraham -- was arrested at around 1 PM on Saturday for suspicion of domestic abuse/serious assault.

According to cops, Farrah and Debra started arguing over childcare issues when Debra allegedly threw an MTV shirt at her daughter ... which landed "on or near" Farrah's baby, who started crying.

That's when Farrah claims she went off on her mother -- who then grabbed Farrah by the throat. Farrah told cops she pushed her mother's hand away from her throat, causing her mother to strike her on the right side of her head and mouth.

In the report, officers say they observed multiple cuts on the right side of Farrah's lips.

The story was first reported by the The Daily Nonpareil.

Seriously...someone needs to bitchslap Farrah. If she was my daughter I would have kicked her ass out of my house a long time ago. I just hope little Sophia didn't see any of it. Farrah is a spoiled, entitled, delusional, lazy, slutty, irresponsible, privilegdged brat who thinks that she can carry on with a teenager's life after having a baby. I hope you are reading this Princess Farrah! Get a clue and start taking care of your own daughter. You don't know how good you have it!

I understand where Farrah is coming from, I too was a teen a mom but soon farrah will need to realize she put herself in this situation and stop being angry at her parents. Take some responsibility for your actions Farrah! What I would like to know is why farrah speaks to her parents in such a derrogatory manner? Why all the fowl language? Does her mother speak to her beloved grandmother in the same manner and that's where she learned such behavior?

I'm not saying that I don't think it is true, but there are two sides to every story. I know that TV portrayals are not always accurate, but from what I've seen on the few episodes I have seen it seems clear that Farrah's last concern is her child and her mother has had to step up and raise her grandchild. Farrah's mother probably never imagined raising a baby in her 50s and was definately heading for a breaking point.On the flip side, her parents have enabled her to the point that she is incapable of accepting responsibility in her own life.
Hopefully after this has all settled down she'll own up and accept that she is a mother and that although she is young and longs for a normal 'teen' life, that baby comes first...always.

I'm sorry but this girl is a smart ass disrespectful brat. If I got pregnant at her age and disrespected my mom like she did her's after all that girl's parents do for her my mom would probably give me an ass whooping too. this girl parties every episode, calls her dad by his real name and tells him to shut up, disrespects her mom and prounces around like a whore. She is disrespectful, very. I don't condone violence in anyway but this girl is not innocent by all means

The majority of these post seem to side with Farrah's mom. If it's acceptable for her mom to abuse her it should be acceptable for farrah to beat the snot out of her mentally/physically abusive control freak of a mother. Teddy Riley did the same thing & everyone had a heart attack. No one has the right to hit another person. The mother does not have any self control.

Farrah is so annoying. She has been terrible to her mother and father. They should have made her stand on her own two feet when she turned 18.......

Ok plain and simple what you put in is what you get out. Farrah actions are a direct result of a lack of discipline since birth. They both got what was coming to them. It's gonna be funny when Sophia is a teen and talks to her mother crazy and does whatever she wants. Its a cycle people! Anyone who is a mom knows that every messed up thing you ever did to your mother comes back to bite you in the ass in your child's own special way. Oh and by the way I am a young mom tonight I'm with my baby. Guess where I was last weekend? I was at home with my child. Yes sometimes I want to get out but my parents are not babysitters. Going to walmart for pampers is the only free time I have. However if I live with them I live by their rules. I love being a mother and my parents are proud because I'm raising my child not trying to kick it. A little too much fun and irresponsible behavior got me in this situation. So time out for that for now.

I LOVE IT! Finally the little disrespectful hoocie got what was deserved! My question is was Farrah's mom on the sauce?

Wow! That mother's mug scares me! Seriously.....that pic makes me realize how truly beautiful my 54 yr old mom is! The 'details' of this story & a mom abusing her daughter makes me see how true deep her inner beauty is too! Think I'll go call her now & tell her! woohoo.....

If Farrah had any sense at all, which, based on the few episodes I have seen she does not, she would not be pressing charges. If her mom goes to jail, who will be taking care of her baby while Farrah is out partying every night? I can't believe it took Debra this long to do something, I would have lost it a long time ago. If she does go to court, all the defense needs to do it play one clip of Farrah and Debra will win.

Her mother obviously didn't handle this confrontation well, but there's no way to get thru to that brat. She's repulsive. The last thing on her mind is her child. Her mother has serious health problems and has gotten stuck raising her grandchild. Farrah does not deserve the privledge of being a mother.
Who's saying the father of her child died? Did someone drop a bomb on the entire city she lives in? Cause I'm pretty sure she has NO CLUE who the father even is.

Get away from your mom! She has been abusive, and non-supportive since day one! You are a beautiful young woman that deserves better, Good luck.

Give me a friggin' break whiners...
Maybe if Debra had knocked the soup out of Farrah when she was younger, instead of buying her clothes and cell phones, she wouldn't be acting like she's somehow entitled now...
Farrah got Farrah pregnant, not her parents...Farrah thinks Farrah is entitled to be a "Teenager" (her words, not mine)instead of being a "Mom"...Farrah should have thought about such things when Farrah was spreading her legs...Farrah should be forced to face the REALITY of being a parent, instead of relying on her parents to do everything for her...

I don't condone child abuse, but Farrah seems to give as good as she gets when it comes to her Mom...I stand by my original post in which I said that Sophia should be removed from BOTH of them until Farrah GROWS UP and accepts responsibility for HER own actions...Farrah should NOT be allowed to take advantage of her parents, as she is now 18 and can be held accountable...
If Farrah doesn't like the rules at Mom & Dad's house, then Farrah should do WHATEVER IT TAKES to move out on her own, and take HER daughter with her...
I wonder how long Farrah will last without her built-in day care?...In ALL Domestic Violence cases a TRO is issues automatically...That means Farrah can't go to her parents home, Farrah can't use them to babysit, Farrah can now deal with the consequences of HER choices...Have fun with that one, Farrah...
