Amber Portwood

Back in the Slammer

Teen Mom Amber Portwood Mug Shot
"Teen Mom" Amber Portwood has been thrown back in jail -- this after a judge issued a warrant for her arrest today, TMZ has learned.

It's unclear why the judge issued the warrant -- whether it's related to Amber's most recent alleged probation violations, including a fight Amber got into at a restaurant last month ... or a new one entirely.

Amber is currently being booked at Madison County Jail in Indiana -- where she's now expected to spend the holidays.

She's due to face a judge on January 13. The booking photo was first obtained by FOX59 in Indianapolis.

Oh well    

Oh, the rest of the story.

The report cited Portwood’s suicidal tendencies (Gary Shirley, father of Portwood’s baby, called Anderson police in June after she threatened to take her own life), and abuse of prescription medications as reasons the recommendation for arrest was made.

The report orders Portwood to be held in jail without bond until her hearing Jan. 13. If convicted, she could face two years in jail. Portwood spent a portion of the holiday week last year behind bars after her arrest for domestic battery directed at Shirley.

A notification of violation was filed Nov. 23 after she was accused of battery and public intoxication in connection with a fight in November. She was also accused of failing other terms of her probation, including obtaining her GED, and completing anger management classes.

The report states Portwood failed to meet with her probation officer on Friday. Probation officers Kelsey Carter and Lauren Roberts visited Portwood at her home later that day and reported Portwood was under the influence of “a mood-altering substance.”

The officers found medication in Portwood’s home, and asked her to provide prescriptions. Portwood responded by saying she doesn’t keep do***entation because her housekeeper “throws that kind of stuff away.”

Portwood did say she was given a muscle relaxer called Soma by the Madison County Health Clinic, and admitted to taking more pills than prescribed due to pain.

Portwood also advised that she was in an auto accident Thursday, and admitted to driving while on her medications. She told the officers that if she shouldn’t drive while on medication, “then why do doctors prescribe them?”

According to the report, Portwood refused to submit to a drug test Friday and again on Monday.

Whoever she is, she looks wasted and has a bad attitude. Looks to be a good place for her, if she can look that bored with the booking procedure. I see she has a baby, sure hope its being well taken care of.

Some mother's never get that motherly instinct. This is one of them. That baby is going to need a lot of counseling or she's going to end up just like her "mother".

and this is why teenage girls should not be having babies and MTV should not be glamorizing it. These girls need to get their lives together, finish high school, get a diploma, get a job in the real world, work, save money, get a house, get married THEN have a baby. They are not mature enough nor are they mentally equipped. This girl is an overgrown spoiled 3 year old temper tantrum beyotch, grow the fock up and face the consequences of your actions, you are NOT a princess. Gawd!
