12/27/2010 10:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained the mug shot of "Teen Mom" Amber Portwood -- taken moments after she was arrested in Indiana for allegedly beating the crap out of her baby daddy ... in front of their daughter. 

Amber Portwood Mug Shot
According to Amber's booking sheet -- the 20-year-old measured in at 5'3", 138 lbs.

Amber was charged with two felony counts of domestic battery, one felony count of neglect of a dependent, and one misdemeanor count of domestic battery.

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

We're told Amber faces three years behind bars and up to $10,000 in fines if convicted on all charges.

Glad she took time to put make up on before being arrested. She needs to grow up and learn to take care of herself and learn how to behave in an adult relationship before she can be a mother.

This is completely ridiculous. They're putting a felony on this young woman's record and ruining her life over some reality show drama.

You know those MTV producers wound her up and got her to play up the controversy, like they always do. And it's not like Gary's elephant-sized ass was harmed at all.

No one ruined her life but herself. She chose not to properly use birth control and had a child she couldn't afford, and she's the one who abused her 'baby daddy' not once, not twice, but at least three times!

"it's not like Gary's elephant-sized ass was harmed at all."
So, it's okay to abuse someone if they're fat? Would it be okay if a man was hitting her because she's elephant-sized?

The other reason this is a big deal is because she did it in front of her daughter. That is abuse in itself, and it continues the cycle of violence, teaching the daughter that it's okay to hit someone.

So if someone physically abused YOU then you'd give them a second chance? The first time someone gets verbally, emotionally, or physically abusive with you should be the last time, Jessica.

I wouldn't say 'Most men would' even though they would be justified in defending themselves. It's exactly that kind of 'anti-male' attitude that is breeding this generation of mentally-defeated p***ies we see today.

It's one thing to build women's self-esteem, but it's another thing to do it at the expense of the male gender! Feminists fought against this very thing in the women's movement, yet they don't realize they're treating men in the same chauvinistic way.

Sorry to go on a rant, but I just think it's wrong to automatically put men down. (I am a girl too, just for the record.) If women keep treating men like this, how can they complain when they aren't "manning up" in life or their responsibilites?

Really? You're calling someone else an ignorant loser?

Seriously? Because sentences start with capitals, as does Palin- which has one L, by the way. Obama should also start with a capital, and it has two A's.

Umm. I get the whole "domestic violence goes both ways" bit & all, and it's about time they started showing that women can't get away with it based on the "evening the score from the past" argument, especially since most women just abuse/neglect their sons in a subconscious bid to heal from abuse at the hands of a man. BUT, it's ridiculous that Alabama chose her to make an example of when I'd bet my life that they don't normally enforce this law against women who aren't nationally famous. That said, her prosecution is ridiculous, it was a TV show... If he wanted, he could press charges. If he did, then she should be prosecuted.

"Feminists fought against this very thing in the women's movement, yet they don't realize they're treating men in the same chauvinistic way"

They realize it. These kind of women are disgusting and they know what they are doing. She literally thinks she is "better" than everyone else.
Now, with her new found celebrity, she will be able to afford anything she wants at the local WalMart.
She is a slimy women - to bad she didn't do something productive with her life and realize that bringing a child into the world is a blessing. But she would rather hit the local bar and f u c k around like the WH0RE that she is.

Thank you!!

The sad thing is how women like her are rewarded for getting knocked up, and I am not even referring to the TV show - I mean how they get government entitlements and a full ride from the poor guy that got her pregnant.

Where are the negative consequences for them? It's never fifty-fifty support, the guy is always 100% on the hook for both the girl and kid. So, what message does that send these women other than a baby equals a free ride?

Would there be this breed of 'Teen Moms' if they thought that they would have to fully support the life they're solely responsible for bringing into the world? Because after conception, it's really not up to the guy anymore.

There is actually that incentive for them to get pregnant. So in that sick way, the most productive thing she did with her life was to reproduce. It's disgusting.

REALITY TV is not entertainment, nor is it reality.

These choice young babes are paid $50K each to pose as struggling teenage parents, which most are not to begin with and $50K to a teenager does not a struggling parent make.

Sadly, the public keeps watching this crap, so they keep inventing new themes for shows. How about reality birth control for teens or adults with their heads up their butts to show teens what makes a person become an adult with no scruples or personal standards that they would exploit a teenage baby mamma and wave money (reward) and fame (reward) at them for their very personal, very life altering decision.

Go MTV, really go.

the width between her eyebrows (lulz) is the same width as my penis. She has a penis meter on her head. It widens and shortens depending on the mate.
