MTV Teen Mom Facing Charges For Baby Daddy Abuse

- By Bossip Staff

SMH… First teen motherhood, now this! 20 year-old MTV “Teen Mom” Amber Portwood looks like she is headed toward life as a felon — especially since the evidence is plain for all to see.

Amber raised the public alarm after footage was aired on the show which clearly documented the young mother behaving violently toward her daughter’s father — with the child present!!! That’s a FELONY. And it was captured on tape multiple times! SMH…

Amber Portwood is finally facing consequences for her violent actions against baby daddy Gary Shirley. Amber, 20, was officially charged Nov. 18 with two felony counts and one misdemeanor for domestic violence and battery. Under Indiana law, an incident of domestic abuse is considered a felony if a child is present for the abuse — which baby Leah was in both cases. Interestingly, one of the two felonies is based on footage never aired by MTV. As told you first, the court subpoenaed MTV for all raw footage from Teen Mom.

The two incidents related to the felony charges occurred Aug. 14, 2009, and July 18, 2010, while the misdemeanor incident (in which Leah was not present) occurred June 14, 2010. Official documents state that Amber choked, slapped, punched and kicked Gary, 24, in their home.

Public Information Offer, Detective Mitch Carroll, tells us Amber will likely be issued a warrant through the Madison County Prosecutor’s Office. According to a press release, “the affidavit has been submitted to the prosecutor for formal charges. If convicted, Portwood faces up to three years in jail and fines of up to $10,000.”

Maybe instead of rewarding these irresponsible children with a television show, they should have provided some kind of counseling because clearly this chick — and her baby daddy were in need of it.

SMH. Hopefully poor little Leah isn’t traumatized for life!
