It's sad that it came to this, but the frustrations of being a teen mom and have a lard ass lazy Baby Daddy could drive any girl to want to punch the crap out the bastard!~! Jail would be just wrong for this young girl, but mandatory anger management should be an option!!

about time she is arrested.!! she has made a complete fool out of herself on teen mom. she knew the cameras were on her. she wants to be famous.!! i couldnt believe how filthy her apartment was, and leah didnt have sheets on her crib. they should have arrested her for child neglect. she didnt hurt gary, i dont agree with it. women should be arrested the same as men for violence.!! but she is a filthy pig, it shows that right on t.v.!! i believe these girls are getting pregnant to see if they can become famous.!! what a joke this is. they need to take leah away and give her to gary.!!

I suppose the only thing which would have made the scene more shocking would be if she would have been bounced off the wall a few times rendering her silent...

Beware of the Zohan!

I think that she deserves to do a little jailtime and need some anger management.It isnt right to hit your significant other and especially in front of your little girl.I think Gary should take custody and give the little girl Leah a chance at a good life and home,he seems more together than her.

I hope she goes to jail. She is an awful mother & human being. She deserves jail time. She is selfish and immature and not once has she put her child ahead of herself. She was awful to Gary and no one deserves to be treated that way. The best thing that could ever happen to Leah is to never, ever be allowed anywhere near this dreadful woman.

She need her *** beat anyways. She been hitting Gary and he could have hit her one time then she would have left him alone. While she's in jail she's going to mess with the wrong person and they are going to get her good. She's not as bad as she shown on TV. Trail park she is, but Gary can get someone better than her.

This guy is a real man with great restraint. He's much taller and way bigger than this girl... he has the size advantage to potentially destroy her had he let the anger get to him.

Unfortunately even with footage, had he even pushed her away, it would've most likely been him going to jail. That's just how laws are now days when it comes to these situations.

Using Ebonics is not an African American/Black thing. All races use Ebonics from time to time. There are a lot of individuals who use the correct "grammar" not "grammer".
