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.

She IS a really great person. Her daughter Sophia is just cute!! There should be no one on her mom's side, because it IS abuse!!! Her mom should get sent to jail. Farrah should get a restraining order from her mom being around her and her baby!!

Farrah needed to be slapped, punched, and kicked in the mouth for the way she talks to her parents. If she would have gotten a smackdown a long time ago then she wouldn't be such a bitch. She actually thinks her mom OWES her, for what, she's obviously already had a priveleged life. Where/what happened to her babydaddy? He probably realized this bitch is high maintenance and bailed.

OMG leave the girl alone. She isnt a spoiled brat. Did anyone watch the show? Her mom was and is a b***h. And BTW, no matter what you do, you can't control what your teenage kids do. If they wanna have sex, they will, whether you like it or not. So leave poor girl alone.

As much as Farrah was a whiny brat on the show, she didn't deserve to be choked by anybody, let alone her mother. And as for the people who say Debra should've disciplined Farrah when she was little or else she wouldn't be a teen mom now, how the hell do you know how she raised her? She probably beat/whooped/spanked her ass as a child and she still ended up a teen mom. I knew plenty of teen girls in high school who were raised the same way by their moms as kids and they still ended up teen moms.
The one I feel sorry for the most is baby Sophia. She can't defend herself and she has to live with this mess. If this is some sort of cycle that exists in this family, I hope Farrah will break it or else Sophia will end up like them.

Farrahs a nightmare- she's been babied,pampered&catered to her whole life. She needs to grow up and forget about getting laid. The only Teen Mom that has an ounce of sense is Catelynn. Love her and Tyler. They need to pull away from those hill-jack parents of thiers ( except Tylers mom) At least she got away from Mullet-Man !!!

Ugh. Farrah is so rude to her parents. In the past episodes she never took full responsibility for her own child and would rather spend time with her friends then spending precious moments with her daughter. Farrah is spoiled and is only concerned about what she is going to wear when she goes out to the club. She's annoying and to be honest, her mom wouldn't have done that if she was respectful to her parents and took responsiblity for her child. She said that she just wants to be a teenager. She should have thought about that before she got herself in that situation. Wh*re.

Good for her mom, Farrah is out of control and thinks people are to bow to her needs. Grow up and be a mother to your child, your mom should have set u straight long ago!
