Amber Portwood HANDCUFFED

Final Moments of Freedom

[PHOTOS]

EXCLUSIVE

0524_amber_portwood_jail_handcuffs_launch_3"Teen Mom" train wreck Amber Portwood was handcuffed and taken into custody yesterday -- after asking a judge to lock her up in prison -- and TMZ has obtained photos of her final moments as a free woman.

Amber appeared emotionless on her way into an Indiana courtroom -- where she showed up for a weekly drug court hearing -- and as we reported, she threw in the towel on the entire rehab thing.

Amber told the judge she hadn't stayed clean since he sentenced her to the rehab program following her December drug arrest ... and will always be a "bad girl" -- so she'd rather just face the 5-year prison sentence the judge originally gave her.

It was shocking, but Amber left the judge with no choice -- so he remanded her into custody.

Amber will remain in custody until her sentencing in a few weeks.

This wankerrr is the kind of trash Homowood turns into celebrity. Time to hang it up on these people America. Keep YOUR money in YOUR pockets, don't hand it over to junkies and ho's and liars and cheats and mental cases who spend their entire adult lives whacked out on drugs and alcohol being paid millions for doing jack squat diddly while you all work your azzzes off for 10, 15, 20, 40 bucks an hour and usually end up dying from whatever it was or is you chose for a way to make an honest living. Just don't do it, most of these people you wouldn't even be able to trust 5 minutes with your children so why make em all rich so they can avoid the laws and rules and things we all have to abide by? Enough. Shut off MTV, the last thing they have anything to do with today is MUSIC. In fact most rock stars will tell you VIdeo killed real Music and of course as the song goes, "Video killed the radio star".

Being a "bad girl" isn't your biggest problem, it's being a "bad mother"...

It's obvious that something is wrong with her. All along since the beginning of the show, 16 and pregnant and all throughout teen mom, she has mentioned her problems with anxiety and depression. She should NOT be punished for something she has no control over. She needs help and sending her to prison is NOT the answer! She is immature and clueless as to what is best for her. The reason she is doing drugs is because either she is trying to mask the anxiety or because her life is out of control. Call her white trash or whatever you want, she is human in the end and has a little girl who loves her very much and needs her.

TMZ posters are nothing but vicious ignorant people who have nothing better to do with their life then post their rude opinions.

I feel deeply sorry for that poor baby that will not have her mom around, because she was too selfish to give up dope and take care of her.

America is one sick society. Fancy Logan getting off scot free and this mother with a bad history every month ( which is obvious, and can be treated). Being placed in prison.
When she can be treated.
Yes sadly she has a drug problem.
BUT COME ON AMERICA !
WHEN THE HEAVENS ARE YOU GOING TO BE UNDERSTANDING IN YOUR FILTHY COURTS AND STOP LETTING THE RICH GO AND DEMONSTRATE MERCY TO THE POOR.

Thank you MTV for exploiting the mentally ill and then sitting back laughing as they spend their lives in jail or prison. When will people step in and stop this crap? It's sick and twisted and needs to stop!
