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."

LOL I agree with "Me". I never see any music on MTV, just Teen Mom and other nonsense. These two need to stay away from eachother. Their adorable daughter is going to have sooo many issues

"Gary and his baby mama Amber Portwood screaming at each other inside of a car."... now what I'm trying to figure out is how did he manage to engage in an argument with Nothingness, who proudly introduces herself as the thing from Teen Mom, talk on the phone and eat"

THEN

His attorney says he's afraid Fatazz may do some jail time and claim that the didn't have any priors... Wait a minute, I'm not an attorney but I have a brain. He had to do have obstructed a law - even with his existence - to have had his license suspended. I know those folks in Indiana can count, that would be TWO [2] OFFENSES. Count them, one-two.

I don't even want to guess what the parents of those mutants are like. They're probably sitting back on their fat ass smoking their cigs, slurping that PBR beer, watching Maury Povich and those judge shows and bragging about how much better they are then them there blacks in the trailer next to them.

Well let's see if Indiana is as fu88ed as California when it comes to kissing the ass of the un-celerity types.

Damn! You KNOW you're obese when the police have to use TWO sets of handcuffs on you! How embarrassing! Lose some weight before it's too late, Gary!

And it's time for you and Amber to give it up already. Trying to make a relationship work for the sake of the child is admirable, but not when the two parents are as volatile towards each other as you and Amber are! Do you think your little girl wants to grow up hearing/seeing the two of you fighting and abusing each other? Subjecting a child to that kind of anger and negativity does SO much more harm than good. You and Amber do NOT belong together, period! You need to STAY AWAY from each other! Move on with your lives and do better for your daughter. As it is, I pity that little girl for having the two of you for parents! Somebody should take her away from the BOTH of you and give her to a healthier and more loving family!

Did he think telling the cop they were from teen mom would help. He probably would have better chance of an appearance ticket if they didn't know who he was.....idiot.
