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.

FREE AMBER? Why? I didn't see him put his hands on her on national TV you dingbat!

Double standards are getting their worth now. Haha, America is STILL filled with a lot of ignorant white trash. Stupid dumb American's. Get an education already, you need to catch up with the rest of the world, lol.

Let me guess what her bumper sticker says, "God said it, I believe it, that settles it." Dumb white trash, once it's cleaned up in America, we'll move forward.

Everyone on here seems to have lost site of the most important part of this woman and her actions. Leah the baby is already picking up on Mommy's bad behavior. She cries when her father leaves, she see's them hugging and thinks they are fighting and tries to break it up. The impact it has had on Leah is already apparent and she's less than two years old.

It's Leah we should all be thinking about. That beautiful little girl didn't ask to be born, yet once the government is off Amber's back, she is just going to go back to being the same person, neglecting her daughter, and maybe using her hitting skills on Leah.

I personally believe what ever two people do as adults is their business. Amber can beat Gary up as often as his permits. But Leah needs to be in a place thats peaceful, sane, and where she's not neglected as she is now.

Leah should not be returned to her mother, I fear for that little girl, while you are all concerned about women's rights, and Gary's not hitting Amber back. None of you mentioned that Leah is in a very dangerous situation with a very unstable mother. Take custody away from her, and Leah might just have a chance to grow up healthy and happy. Not miserable, angry, uncared for.

A man who knows he's on camera and isn't dumb enough to hit back and go to jail.

Typical A-town piece of ****, slumming it at the H&K motel, LOL. A felony for neglect and domestic battery isn't uncommon for multiple instances. She will probably get 3 years probation and pay a fine.

Amber Portwood is an angry, uneducated mess. She has no future unless she gets help, real help showing her how to deal with the triggers that cause her to lash out. And the help needs to come from someone other than Dr. Drew.

As far as Gary's behavior, it takes a lot of willpower not to hit back. The last thing Leah needs is two abusive parents.

Good. I hope the moron goes to the slammer...then we will not have to see her on tv & in media.I never liked her, even before the attacks on fattie. She is a lousy mom and a lazy, ignorant loudmouth! The truth is....she will probably only face fines & probation :(

If that were a women being hit by a man while the film crew were there, I believe the film crew would have gotten involved by calling 9-1-1 or at least holding the man back. I don't see why it should be any different if the abuser is the female!

She should go to jail. If that was Gary hitting her his butt would be in jail. Girls and Woman are just as nasty as boys and men can be.
