Amber Portwood

Back to Jail

5/11/2012 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0511_amber_portwood_01"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood is back in an Indiana jail cell ... after prosecutors claimed she LIED about having a medical condition to get out of her weekly drug court appointment.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Portwood was a no-show at drug court last week ... after telling officials she was on doctor-ordered bed rest following laparoscopic gallbladder surgery.  Our sources say Amber's attorney told the court she was ordered to remain in bed for 2-3 weeks.

But here's the rub -- we're told Amber's case manager didn't want to take Amber's word for it ... and spoke to the doctor directly ... who called B.S. on the reality star and insisted she WAS well enough to attend her court obligations.

Amber was immediately hauled back to jail for missing the appointment -- and we're told she's expected to stay behind bars for a couple of weeks ... until a judge decides what to do with her.

I had that surgery--it takes a little time to heal, but absolutely no bed rest was involved.

I only come in here to ask one thing...WHY is this relevant? An female who has a child out of wedlock, busted for drugs and on probation...why is this on TV and considered 'entertainment'? It's an epic fail on her part and she get's paid by a television company to let them film it for her.

The real B.S. here is the court system in Anderson. Amber was told both by her doctor and the court system that she could have time off of testing because of her surgery. She was not out doing other things during this time...she was at home doing what she was supposed to be doing. I find it sad that Amber is back in jail right now for doing what she was told to do by the judge and her doctor yet there is still a prosecutor there in Anderson who was caught smoking CRACK and the judge let him off basically with a warning because she is still practicing law. The court system in Anderson is completely corrupt. Some might think that I am just making excuses for Amber. Well I would like to assure you that this time I am not...She is really get screwed over by the court system. This time she really did nothing wrong and did exactly what she was told to do.
