"Teen Mom" Amber Portwood is currently behind bars in an Indiana jail -- stemming from allegations she beat up her baby daddy ... TMZ has learned.

Amber Portwood Arrested

Amber allegedly attacked Gary Shirley three separate times between August 2009 and July 2010.  Some of the violence was captured on video.

This chick needs to take anger management classes for a loooong time. Evidently she has been beating up on people, when she gets angry, for a long time. I'm sure her boyfriend was not the first.

She should not be around her daughter until she learns anger control because one day she will hit her daughter me.

TMZ, Harvey, this would be a good topic of discussion on your live show from the perspective of how Reality TV has an effect on it's participants more than the audience. Would she have done this to such a dramatic extreme if she was not on camera? I look forward to this discussion.

I just don't think she should be in jail for this.
She is under a lot of stress from a dead beat daddy.
I feel that he made her hit him.
He knew the cameras were there. And he got what he wanted.

Anyway, we all know she is smaller than he is. It certainly didn't hurt to be hit by her.

It's NOT the same thing when a woman hits a man and we ALL know it!!!!

Sounds like the baby mama beat up the baby daddy, but where was the baby grandfather and baby grandmother to stop these two from acting like babys? Perhaps the baby uncle or baby aunt could have stopped all this.

@Number 11...

Talk black??? ebonics???? The correct term would be baby's daddy or baby's father....Baby would be a possessive-the father belonging to the baby-therefore it should get an apostrophe. Please know what you are speaking off if your're going to correct someone and bring race into it and the same time.

Now back to the original post...what took so long? She should have been arrested and charged when the show aired. Unfortnately, this will make it even hard for her to get a good job and support her daughter....this is a shame.
