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.

I feel bad for him. He's so stupid, but he is such a great guy that feels like he isn't worth anything more than that stupid girl. But you can't live on people feeling bad for you, he needs to step up and grow up.
I'm glad he called 911. Something needs to be done!
On the other hand, that operator was AWFUL! People have adrenaline pumping and it's so hard to think when something scary is going on. I think it should definitely be looked into and possibly think about another training session for some operators.

Gary needs to do him. He's a good man. He needs to go on with his life and leave the psycho crab alone. She's too much work. Her calling Gary instead of calling 911 herself, was just another "give amber attention" scheme. I wish I was Gary's sister, I would go to Indiana and give her the business since she likes too punch people.

Is anything going to happen to the 911 operator for the way she acted to Gary on the phone?! She acted like oh well somone killing themselves, not her problem?? Umm, don't work with the public if you don't have compassion for EVERY call! Bet if that was someone in her family she would of handled that call differently. Very Very unprofessional & rude. Usually people dial 911 because they are in distress you would think she would be trained to be the "Calm rashinal one" Don't matter if people don't like reality t.v. stars they are still human beings & that 911 operator was a B....
