Gary Shirley -- Nuclear Argument Led to Arrest

5/24/2011 4:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The cop who arrested MTV star Gary Shirley for driving on a suspended license in Indiana this morning says he only approached the vehicle after hearing Gary and his baby mama Amber Portwood screaming at each other inside of a car.

According to the police report obtained by TMZ, the officer was concerned about a couple arguing inside of a Silver Dodge parked near the police station around 1:30 AM ... so he approached the vehicle. 

The officer says Gary introduced himself and Amber as the couple from "Teen Mom" -- and that's when the cop asked for some ID. The officer ran a check on Gary's license -- and it came back suspended, so he ordered Gary out of the car.

According to the report, "I placed Mr. Shirley in two sets of handcuffs due to his size." Gary was taken to a nearby jail and his bond was set at $3,000. He has since been released.

Gary's lawyer, Jeff Lockwood, tells us ... "I am not concerned about him being sentenced to a jail term. It's a traffic violation and Gary doesn't have a previous criminal history."

He adds, "We hope we can resolve the license issue so this won't happen again."

where the hell is the child that they are never with? Do they not understand what an abusive relationship is? They need to get away from each other. Trust me....it hurts for a little while, but you get over it. They need to focus more on the baby and take time off the "relationship".

These two have so many issues!
There relationship is bad from the start, think about baby Leah. If these to parents are still together they need to change for baby Leah because babies know when there parents are arguing or sad.It's a shame for her to go through the arguments.

Good grief. I am appalled these people get any attention whatsoever. You should be ashamed of yourself for lowering yourself to write about these types of freaks.

hello    

Who the hell cares what these people do? He is not a star. He is simply an idiot who got his stupid girlfriend pregnant and gets a paycheck for it. He needs to lose a lot of weight and she needs some serious anger management classes. Neither of them should ever reproduce again. They have already ruined one innocent child's life. I just hope that they would put their child with a family that will love her and care for her and not see her as a paycheck like her parents did.

hello    

Star? I guess the cop doesn't watch teem mom as he asked for ID after they introduced themselves as the couple from the show. He is just a guy who got a teenager pregnant and found a way to make money from it. They are both losers and neither one seems interested in their child. It seems that she was just born to be a paycheck. I feel bad for the child having these two for parents. I hope she gets a chance to grow up with a family that will love her and not look at her as just a cash cow.
