Amber Portwood

Drug Test Violator

3/8/2012 2:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0307_amber_portwood_tmz_ex
"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood done screwed up again -- TMZ has learned, she failed to take a required drug test ... and could face the 5-year prison sentence she narrowly dodged in January.

TMZ broke the story ... Amber was sentenced to 5 years in prison after her December drug arrest -- but the judge promised to dismiss the entire case if she completes a drug program ... a stipulation that includes daily drug testing.

Amber's been doing great -- but on Monday, she torpedoed all her progress ... by failing to provide a urine sample during a routine drug test while she serves time on home detention.

Sources tell TMZ, Amber failed to provide a urine sample because she simply couldn't go at the time -- but life's not fair ... and no pee counts as a failed test ... no matter what.

Amber's due in court Thursday for a weekly check-up with the judge -- and she'll have to answer for the failed test. If he wants, the judge is within his power to throw the book at her ... locking her up for her original 5-year sentence.

it'll be nice to see someone actually do time for a blatant disregard of the law. note to self: when i am court ordered to pee in a cup, i will make time to pee in a cup.

Sounds like the Lindsay Syndrome...but she's not as rich or as "famous" as her so she wil get the book thrown at her. Good thing too. Its about damn time these people stop getting special deals and make them face the consequences of their actions. If you knew you had to take a pee test everyday, then you make sure you have a bottle of water to chug to make you go! The "I couldn't go" excuse doesn't work AT ALL. She obviously has no respect for herself, the law or anyone else so let her azz rot in jail. Maybe it will wake her punk butt up and realize she needs to grow the F up.

UGH!! Why don't they lock this chick up??? She is obviously an ungrateful child that was thrust into the spotlight by the producers at MTV looking to make a buck off an epidemic that plagues America. So sick of it.

Couldn't go at the time? Please!!!! This is the oldest trick in the book. I used to work at a halfway facility and we would give the guys a cup of water and plenty of time for it to go through their system. If the guys knew they were dirty, some of them wouldn't drop. Clearly she has used. Unfortunately for her, not taking the test is the same as having a positive result.....as the article states.
