Teen Mom's Mom Charged with Domestic Assault

1/20/2010 1:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The mother of one of the stars of MTV's "Teen Mom" was charged with domestic assault today, after she allegedly choked and hit her daughter last weekend.

Teen Mom Farrah Abraham Debra Danielson

Court officials tell TMZ Debra Danielson -- the mother of 18-year-old "Teen Mom" Farrah Abraham -- was charged this morning in Pottawattamie County court in Iowa ... and is due back in court on February 26 for a preliminary hearing. We're told Debra did not enter a plea today.

According to the Council Bluffs Police Department, Farrah accused Debra of choking her and hitting her on Saturday after a verbal argument erupted between the two over childcare issues and other problems.

When cops arrived at their home, they arrested Debra after observing multiple cuts on the right side of Farrah's lips.

UPDATE: A rep for MTV tells TMZ, "MTV is aware of the matter between Farrah and her family, and will continue to respect and support her as we tell her story. We understand the serious nature of these allegations, and encourage anyone dealing with domestic violence to access resources at www.loveisrespect.org or call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1.800.799.SAFE (7233)"

UPDATE: According to Debra's attorney, she's going to plead not guilty.

Daughter probably needed it. If she is 18, why doesn't she move out & take her child with her.

who has the facts? ME    

All of you who think Farrah deserved it ought to be ashamed of yourselves.

Her mother is crazy. She raised that girl to be who she is - the mother has no one to blame but herself.

Violence is NEVER the answer. Do you not wonder why Farrah behaves the way she does?? Crazy, psycho, abusive mothering is enough to make any child act out. And I bet it started LONG before Farrah got pregnant.

What is wrong with this society that we all all cheering for the mother to beat the crap out of her child?? REALLY!!??!!??

I guess 8 years of Cheney and the violent talk of Limbaugh and the rest of the tea baggers have really twisted some minds here.

Children CAN be raised well without violence.

Wake up and stop the violence. Violent people are ignorant.

Farrah is a totally useless human being. Her mother gave her everythhing, bent over backwards for her, and the spoiled little b*tch was never satisfied.

Like it or not, Farrah is going to have to move out. Domestic violence laws won't allow them to be in the same home together now.

I just hope the parents of Farrah's dead ex - i.e. little Sophia's father - go for custody. They have a real shot since the domestic violence issue took place in the presence of the child and the mother (Farrah the Retard) didn't protect her. Wouldn't that make for a great episode...hahahahahaha!!!

Watched the show last night..Farrah scolds her mom and tells her NOT to come in and get the baby in the morning because she doesn't like it. Well the baby wakes up crying and hungry in the morning and lazy ass mom doesn't even hear or wake up... so guess who has to come in and feed the poor hungry baby?? MOM does, thank god because if she didn't lazy ass would never get up to feed her poor baby!!! What mom DOES NOT HEAR HER BABY IN THE MORNING?? If my baby even made a "eh" sound I was awake!! idiot was probably still drunk from her night out!

Farrah, I can't help but think that most of the issues with your mom are actually because of you. You are going to find that you need the support of your family. Your beauty of a baby is certainly better off with the unconditional love your family gives.

Pull your head out of the ground and get a clue.

Why is it the parents fault?Providing for her and her b@stard child.They shouldnt call them kids anymore they should call them excuses because thats all they have, its society or McDonalds.If i said something out of the way to my parents I got taught a quick lesson and i never did it again.Throw her and her damn kid into the streets and let them fend for themselves.I watched the show and i would rip her head off and sew her legs shut.Lets take up a collection for the mom.

Paisley....

What in the world?

"I guess 8 years of Cheney and the violent talk of Limbaugh and the rest of the tea baggers have really twisted some minds here."

Are you tired from staying up and listening to MSNBC last night?

I hope that Farrah's mom sets some specific boundaries for Farrah, without losing time with the baby.

The police pulled their gun on the grandma because she had 2 knives and she wouldn't put them down when asked. You can find the update on www.omaha.com

why?    

FARRAH GROW UP AND STOP THINKING THE WORLD REVOLVES AROUND U.
EVEN THE GUY SHE WAS TRYING TO LAST DATE ON THE SHOW WAS LIKE WHY ARE YOU HERE AND NOT WITH YOUR KID. HER MOM WAITED TOO LITTLE TOO LATE TO TRY TO DE-BRAT FARRAH. I AM A MOTHER OF 2 KIDS UNDER 5 YEARS, AND I GET IN THEIR FACE AND TELL THEM THEY ARE NOT RUNNING ANYTHING AND THE FRONT DOOR IS THERE IF THEY WANT TO LOOK FOR A BETTER FAMILY.
FARRAH GOES OFF ON BOTH HER PARENTS AND THEY LOOKED DEFEATED. EVEN THE OLDER SISTER TALKS TO HER PARENTS LIKE CRAP, THEY WERE PROBABLY CUSSING THEM OUT BY THE AGE OF 6. "PEOPLE OF THE EARTH" TAKE YOUR KIDS BACK OR THEY WILL TAKE YOU OUT!.

If Mom is smart she will toss that trashy daughter out on the street and try to get custody of the baby....Farrah doesn't want to be a mother...she wants to be a teenager and have a social/party life! I wouldn't tolerate her S%^& and poor treatment! GROW UP FARRAH!!

Why are you defending the mom? Abuse is abuse! She's already hit Farrah before and this is not a good idea! So, if someone is mouthy, it's okay to hit? Grow up people!

Farrah's mom can only take so much. I will never say that violence is the answer but mom must have just been at her wits end with her daughter and lashed out. She could have just thrown her daughters ass out and said "to hell with you" but she has been there and helping with the baby, not to mention financially as well. Farrah is just disrespectful...period.
