'Teen Mom' Amber Portwood

Facing 2 Years in Jail

for Being a Crappy Person

12/15/2011 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Teen Mom Amber Portwood
"Teen Mom" Amber Portwood could end up in the slammer for 2 years after allegedly violating virtually ALL of the terms of her probation -- including staying sober in public ... and not beating people up.

According to court docs filed in Indiana, obtained by TMZ, Amber's probation officer claims the 21-year-old former "Teen Mom" committed a laundry list of violations:

-- "Failure to behave well in society" -- namely, drinking too much and hitting a person at a restaurant last month
-- Failure to obtain a GED
-- Failure to complete 6 months of anger control evaluation and classes
-- Failure to pay probation fees
-- Failure to set up a $10,000 college fund for her baby daughter

Amber was sentenced to 2 years in jail after being convicted of beating the crap out of her baby daddy Gary Shirley -- but the sentence was suspended on the condition that she do all of the above.

Amber's due back in court for a hearing in January, when she'll have the opportunity to explain herself. If the judge doesn't buy it, he or she could throw the book at Amber.

Calls to Portwood have not been returned.

If Lindsay Lohan is the standard though... Amber gets at least three more chances, right?

If you do not believe this is newsworthy material, why did you click and read it? And not only that but you also commented on it. If you do not believe it is "news," stop supporting it!

Serve her right this time, any other person would be sitting on a metal bed for two years after "beating down someone. But wait Teen Mom's don't get in this kind of trouble right? The skinner this moron gets the meaner she gets. She needs some serious Meds and locked away..Poor Leah!! Her mother is a typical white trash teenage mom from the midwest, who hasn't gottent the treatment she needs.

Isn't karma a wonderful thing?
Good luck trying to sucker punch someone in jail. She's about to be introduced to some very tough girls who'll tune her up a bit.

I have never liked Amber from the begining! This is the result of imature people having babies.. She needs to grow up and realize there are more important things in the world now like her DAUGHTER!! Grow up Amber and be the Mom not the child!!!

Man people love to hate, this girl shouldn't even have been charged with a crime in the first place. Just shows the cops have absolutely nothing to worry about wherever she is from. She smacked her 500 lb boyfriend a few times, and the cops slapped a felony on her, ridiculous, and the people on this site, man you people are hateful, makes you feel better about your crappy lives that something bad is happening to someone else. So many s***my people who feel joy about someone going through a hard time. I'd tell you all to grow up but that's not likely to happen. Saddens me that so many negative hateful people exist.

I hope that they do send her to jail and that TMZ reports on it heavily to send a message to all of the over-indulged selfish teenagers who don't think that the rules apply to them to find out that they do. Her kid would be better off without her in her life.

And still the courts are not going to send her to jail. These celebs and wanna be celebs get away with damn near murder.
