Amber Portwood 911

'She's Going to Hang Herself'

6/15/2011 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Amber Portwood's baby daddy Gary Shirley called 911 yesterday and begged the operator to send cops to the "Teen Mom" star's Indiana home ... warning, "She's going to hang herself"

TMZ obtained a copy of the 911 phone call Gary placed yesterday, in which he says Amber had recently mentioned that she was "having a hard time with her life" and he feared she might commit suicide.

Gary, who sounded very calm on the phone, explained, "I just spoke with my girlfriend and she had said something to me ... said she's having a hard time with her life ... call the police, they can find my body in the garage."

Gary added, "I'm calling you guys because I don't want her to kill herself."

Cops eventually responded to Amber's home -- and though she did not appear to be injured, she was taken to a nearby medical facility for further evaluation.

Never mind Amber and the suicide threat....that 911 operator was rude. Her questions were not very clear to someone who just had his girlfriend threaten suicide. I hope one of her bosses listens to the recording. Just another example of a rude public servant.

Amber will do anything for attention. Why is he still with her!

BTW the dispatcher needs to stop asking for Amber's phone number and then cutting him off to ask another question. And check her attitude!

You people are horrible, it isn't her fault she's screwed up. It's MTV's fault, they take a girl who's pregnant at 16 has no decent parent or guidance, give her money and make her famous, then instead of getting her help they exploit her and her disfunctional relationship and parenting. she needs HELP she's crying out for HELP, and nobody is helping her.

Most of you must be listening to a different tape, or worse. In need of a Q-Tip. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the operator.

This seems like a total pr stunt. It worked. The suckers at TMZ put it right up on the site.

That 911 operator should be fired. What a bitch. No compassion and sounded like it was such a pain in the ass to send a cop over there to just check it out. Doesn't she understand that people are upset when they call 911 and might be flustered? FIRE HER!!!!!!!!!!!

Give me a break. When I was younger I WAS depressed and DID try suicide twice, it just didn't work and now I'm glad it didn't. If she was sincere, she wouldn't have asked for help, she would have just done it and delt with the consequences. Bunch of overspoiled whiney brats that just want attention, and you know the worst part, is we give it to them.

Forget Amber, the real story here is the biotch that works for 911. Can we get her fired?

That operator should be reported or get a job she can handle. If she had been patient, and listened, she would have realized he said three times that his Mom was WALKING over. Sheesh.
Perhaps TMZ should do a story on the operator and how she was caught on tape being an *******... Show her all the comments, get a reaction. That's entertainment.
