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.

THIS GIRL NEEDS HELP NOT JAIL. SHE NEEDS COUNSELING. SHE DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO COPE WITH EVERYDAY LIFE. YOU CAN'T CHANGE IT, BUT SHE WAS TOO YOUNG TO HAVE A BABY. SHE IS OVERWHELMED WITH EVERYTHING AND CANNOT CONTROL HER ANGER. SHE NEEDS HELP. LET'S HOPE SHE GETS IT SO SHE DOESN'T GO THRU THE REST OF HER LIFE ANGRY. GOOD LUCK

OMG...Lets see...Amber hit Gary. Amber is now in jail for hitting Gary. If Gary would have been the one to hit Amber, MTV would have put a stop to it. Why didnt they put a stop to it when Amber hit Gary...because it boosted their ratings and it was all part of the show. I don't care how young the girl is or was when she had her child...I do think that it is wrong for them to arrest Amber. MTV really is at fault here and I don't care what any of you think.

Reality shows are bad enough but this particular one is very destructive. How many ditzy teenagers are going to get pregnant hoping they will get a show on TV. Don't say it won't happen, it will. This young woman needs serious help. She is in no condition to be caring for a child.

UNFORTUNATLEY MEN ARE USUALLY ALWAYS THE ABUSERS.WELL THIS TIME THE TABLES HAVE TURNED.A LOT OF WOMEN ARE NOT TOLERATING THESE SO CALLED MEN'S BS THESE DAYS

Completely not true! Surveys of "battered" women indicate that they physically attacked the male first in almost 2/3rds of the cases. Our police are trained to ignore female violence against men unless they are crippled or dead, and most men don't press charges because the kids need their mother and a variety of other excuses. Violence is not a productive way to deal with BS. If it was, way more women would be abused. Is that how you deal with your child's BS? You need mental help and quick because you will get in trouble with that attitude.

I just watched the video or her beating her boyfriend, that was bad...I felt very bad for her boyfriend but what a guy he kept his self in check all that time while she was hitting him, so wrong on her part, she should be in trouble and in jail, that was awful to watch....she shouldn't be on tv for young kids to watch this stuff...She will do it again in the future, once you do it you do it again...

talk about a piece of CRAP! Sometimes people do get pushed to their "limit" and their reaction becomes violence however, even though fatbastard doesnt seem like the brightest pig in the pen, he should have never been subjected to the type of abuse she had offer. Women think they can get away with hitting their gf or bf.... in lesbian relationships, some girls are very violent like f**k face amber is and its hard to prove who was the abuser 99% of the time. Its a tough one. Thankfully this was caught on camera to show how violent women are these days! People think because you are a woman that you are soft and not possibly a abuser! Its disgusting that one would do that infront of their child. Amber::::
1) You are not and will never ever be a celebrity! Reality tv dosnt make you a star!!!! yes people sadly know who you are ( if they read tmz and watch mtv lmao) other than that, you are a nobody.
2)Hitting your partner without a valid reason is a big NO NO. Yes getting pushed to the limit will cause a person to crack and react but evidently, YOU have mental issues and anger issues!! You do know that if he had hit you back, your whole head and face would have flown into a window and you'd be broke to pieces!
3)People like you disgust me!

When is he going to be arrested for statutory rape? I'm sure she was underage when they started having sex. I feel sorry for her. Yes, she shouldn't have hit him, but there were certainly times that I wanted to bust through the TV and smack the sh•t right out of him myself. She may be the convict, but he is certainly no angel. What about when they needed diapers and food and he went out and spent $500 on a game system? Then he had the nerve to buy her a $39 engagement ring from Walmart. He never provided for that child, and he deserves to be kicked around for that alone.

I can't stand to watch this show. Amber is narcissistic and immature beyond words. She never learned how to do anything but run her mouth, use her fists, and lay on her back. Her apartment is filthy and she's so lazy she won't even put in the effort to make sure there are sheets on the bed or crib. And she's so stupid and clueless that she can't even manage to pass a GED test. "DUH" doesn't begin to describe her stupidity.

Gary is a dumba.s.s too. He's almost as immature as Amber. He purposely ruined her birthday by refusing to stay with his own child. He lets Amber browbeat him, repeatedly thrown him out of the apartment and physically abuse him, and then he goes back for more with candy and flowers in hand. What kind of self-respecting person does that?

And, to the person who blamed the state of Alabama for this mess -- these two idiots live in INDIANA.
