She should be prosecuted just as a man should be if he hits a woman.

I am so glad the court is not allowing her contact with the child. That is a huge concern. Good for the court.

Okay...
First off not guilty? Girl please?!? there is hard core evidence of you hitting your baby daddy. Hello!! TAPE.. Anyways there is always 2 sides to every story and I'm pretty sure Gary has some fault in all of this, but she should just take responsibility because it clearly that she needs some type of help. Anger issues anyone??

It's a Reality Show people! and on MTV!(lol) Of course we should believe everything we see on television. Television would never lie to its viewers.

★ ★ ★If you watched the show, you'd see that Gary was a total sweetheart, while she was a complete psycho.

At the season finale of last years run, she even appeared drunk or messed up on something. It was very obvious.

Gary deserves someone WAY better than this. Wishing him all the best, and here's hoping Amber gets what she deserves.

HI HARVEY!!!★ ★ ★

It seems very late for the law to intervene. The crime took place months ago and was not reported by the film crew because they so obvious wanted to make money on the drama.

MTV feeds of crime. Isn't there a law there where such crimes must be reported. Here you can go to jail if it is proven that you saw domestic violence or child endangerment and didn't react.

I am so disappointed with MTV.

Ahh...the benefits that come from being on "Teen Mom"...baby formula donated to you as part of your compensation...fame and celebrity knowing you have brought a bastard child into this world...a home at the best trailer park that money can buy...and a felony on your record because you think just because you are a female...that THAT would exempt you from justice...haul that trashy bitchy bitch to jail and take her child away from her.

Shouldn't you black out the victim's address TMZ. Hers was not shown, so his shouldn't be either.

I agree with most of the comments here. She is obviously guilty and disturbed. And maybe Gary is somewhat lazy and doesn't do as much work as he could/should. But that does not mean it is ok to physically attack him. If it was the other way around, he'd have been in jail a long time ago.

"The Indiana court also prohibited Amber from having any contact with her daughter or the alleged victim" At least the judge has some sense. Now the state should take the kid and allow it to be adopted with the bitch never seeing here again. Then the forced sterilization and that should fix the problem.

@#4 gt- those comments are so inappropriate!! She is still someones mom and regardless of her abusing her boyfriend dosent mean anyone should deserve what you are implying. She will get the worst punishment of all when she has that baby taken away from her and that punishment enough. Her bf handled the situation correctly and Amber is young and angry and stressed she never hit her baby she really needs consouling and anger management and maybe some antidepressants to help her cope with being a young mom. She is going to get the help she needs now and her bf isnt all innocent here either he fueld her at times as well and that dosent excuse here hitting him but he is at fault her in some asspects as well they need to get counsiling together
