Portwood walked out of the jail with a woman who appears to be her mother.

Portwood was locked up yesterday -- when she was arrested and charged with felony domestic battery for allegedly beating up her baby daddy in front of their daughter.

According to the police report filed with the court, Amber acknowledged that her violence was true anger and not staged for the TV show.

One of the officers notes in the report that there were "multiple violent and physical fights between [Amber and Gary]" in which Amber punched, slapped and kicked him.

In the outtakes that were not aired on the MTV show, the baby is clearly in the room watching the violence, according to the police report.

Portwood has since pled not guilty to the charges.

where the hell was her Mom when she was beating the hell out of Shirley? She should have taught that daughter how to act from the start.

How can this piece of crap say "not guilty" when she is on tape hitting and kicking and other things to her boyfriend? SHe is psycho and needs serious jail time and therapy. Her ass needs to go to JAIL. NO more "oh poor thing" enough is enough

My thoughts on the shining example chosen to represent our "fine" county of Madison pale in comparison to my hopes of seeing TMZ right here in Anderson!! Didn't see you but I am pretty sure this isn't the last we have heard from the lovely Miss Portwood. Talk about a disaster waiting to happen...stay tuned TMZ and I will be looking out for you(the real celebrities)

Why does Amber have only half eyebrows? They look like little half moons! What the hell is wrong with her? Is she hypothyroid now from taking all the valium? You can't control your RAGE with drugs Amber! You can't be drugged up/down all day long b/c you fear jail time or getting fat. They both (her and Gary) should have been smart enough to put the child up for adoption when they had the chance. They still can at this point and that would be the most selfless thing they could do for her at this point.

Both are entirely too self absorbed and immature to handle the demands and responsibility of a child.

Leah will grow up and ask her father, Gary, "Daddy, why didn't you protect me from Mommy?"....Gary will only be able to say..."Leah honey...if I left your mommy I wouldn't have gotten a big paycheck from MTV. If mommy didn't hit Daddy and let you watch, the ratings would have gone down. I was also wipped and my relationship with mommy was more important than your emotional well being....so sorry."

This is what happens when little girls try to play grown up. Both of these brats are too young to be in the situation that they are in. Neither of them are ready to be parents and are probably going to screw this baby up the way they were screwed up. It's a sad reality that these situations have a tendency to repeat themselves UNLESS somebody realizes the problem and GETS HELP. For the sake of this baby I hope that somebody does just that.

Oh please, the same people who painted Rihanna as the poster child for battered women are now condeming this girl for hitting her bf. Many people close to Chris Brown and Rhi stated that Rihanna thought nothing of slapping him around if he pissed her off, but when he finally struck back, he's Ike Turner and she's Tina. That whole story only taught girls that it's ok to hit your boyfriend, but if he hits you back, you get to play the victim.

ummm?!    

How does she plead NOT guilty, when it was broadcast on TV. Then she admits in court(with her attorney)that the hitting was NOT staged for the TV show??

Someones probably already wrote it but:

"Port"wood? and not "PORK"wood?

That would be a much more fitting last name.

Even though she should be arrested..I can not believe the grown ass men taunting to get a reaction out of her.

I've been hearing about these photographers and cameramen who will go around calling celebs kids ugly right to their face so the parents will punch them. Calling them bastard child and other filthy names. Its really sad this is someones actual job.
