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.

"That's when Farrah claims she went off on her mother -- who then grabbed Farrah by the throat."

This statement alone shows that Debra might have been defending herself from Farrah...What did Farrah do to Debra?...Hmmmm?...

the apple doesn't fall from the tree in this case.

Her mom is a control freak and pushy, Farrah is a self, spoiled, self-centered, egotistical BRAT. She probably learned a good deal from her mother, attitude wise.

I don't condone abuse but c'mon....if I'd spoken to my mother or father that way I'd have had to get dentures after they'd knocked my teeth out. She simply doesn't have any respect for the woman who raised. PERIOD.

I hope MTV shows this on the show, so I can laugh my head off same way I did when Snookie from Jersey Shore got popped in the mouth at the bar XD

@Harvey--How does Thirty Mile Zone have to do with Council Bluffs, Iowa. I am surprised you have this on your site. How is Farah a Superstar. Search the Nonpariel for article on her babys father and how he died in a freak storm. That would be a more befitting news article how two teenager's lost there lives when a tree uprooted during a bad storm and landed on there car. I don't know they girl myself but it sounds like grandma provoked it and not Farah from what I understand. Also, did you do articles on the Tornado that destroyed a camp near Little Sioux. I can't believe it. A place I know.

You know what? This girl had it comin to her! She whores around out late at night while her Mom and Dad do everything for her baby daughter. She's not the least bit appreciative either. She's a bitch to both of them, cursing them, demanding she be let out of the house to be a "teenager"!!! PLEASE!!! Should've kept those legs closed girl! Nobody owes her anything, she needs to woman up and take care of her baby, and herself. I would've kicked her out on her ass a long time ago!!!

She should have never opened her legs if she didn't want to deal with the consequences of having a kid. that is her fault. She shouldn't be going out EVERY NIGHT! She acts like her parents OWE her a break.. PLEASE.. She needs to be kicked out now and see how are it really is.. Her mother shouldn't be the one raising that baby.. it isn't her child

I am so sick and tired of these unwed mothers thinking that their own mothers should be responsible for raising illegitimate grandchildren! Why didn't Farrah's mother say "you either give the baby up for adoption or your out on your own"? Instead she keeps forcing responsibility on Farrah who wants nothing to do with it. This is causing Farrahs mom sooo much frustration it's no wonder she snapped. Farrah's sense of entitlement makes me sick but it's typical of girls her age today. My niece recently had a "welfare" baby and had the nerve to complain that she wasn't given a private room after her "free" delivery!

Do you know the family personally, Remember it is TvLand directed by the Media to sell the show. You should watch the video from her hometown on a local station--In which cronologicalized her months of being pregant and giving birth. That is the real family. Yes, IT IS TRUE HER BABIES FATHER IS DEAD!! A Horrific Accident. In which two teenage young men lost there lives. If you do not know the facts you should not comment. That Family is a real family. Get your facts straight.

"Face"-you are so stupid! That was a horrible, untrue, and sexist comment. Just because a girl gets pregnant young, does not always mean the parents are bad. There are pressure in society today that cause girls younger and younger to have sex. Even if their parents lecture them on the dangers of sex, teens make their own choices. Things like friends, the media, or let me think....THE BOY could be pressuring or glamourizing sex. Men are at fault too. Just because the girl has to live with the consequences doesn't mean anything. I hate people who automatically call girls whores when they are pregnant young. You have no idea about their situation! I know plenty of "whores" who aren't and haven't ever been pregnant. I know of girls who got pregnant from the first and only guy they ever slept with, kinda like Maci on the Teen Mom show. This show is wonderful. It's an eye-opener to how difficult raising a child (especially young) really is. Hopefully it teaches girls AND BOYS a lesson about sex and protection, as well as relationships and responsibilties for their actions. But anyway, I dislike Ferrah the most as well. I kind of don't blame her mom. She seemed so stressed and probably had a lot of pent up anger. The things her mother had to put up with was horrific. Actually, I thought her mom was a push over, even though she would scream at Ferrah, but half of the time she is just letting Ferrah curse at her and tell her what to do. It looks like she has raised a monster. I have no idea how Ferrah's childhood was like or about her mother's parenting skills but they both need major help. I was in absolute shock when Ferrah went to go get birth control. Seriously??? That's pretty much saying she's planning on going out and having promiscuous sex again. She has way more things to worry about other than sex and boys. She needs to realize that it's hard to find an attractive boy her age that will go for a girl with a baby. It's sad but it's true. Remember the episode where she met that french guy (or whatever his accent was) and went to his place?? He seemed cool with her having a baby untill she made the mistake saying that she doesn't care about the baby. I immediately saw that priceless look in his face, complete shock. Because of that stupid statement she ruined her chance with him. It makes me very sad for her daughter. She's the real victim in all of this mess. But I'll continue to see how this hot mess plays out.

This girl is a total spoiled brat. She is extremely disrespectful to her parents and treats the mom like a scullery maid. She seems not to care about the baby and is constantly spending every night out chasing guys. Her parents don't seem to enforce any rules or have any kind of plan for her...she is a real mess and not very likable. I feel sorry for baby Sophia.
