Amber Portwood, one of the stars of MTVâ€™s Teen Mom, was arrested Monday on felony domestic violence charges and placed on a 24-hour hold after allegedly hitting her daughter's father, 24-year-old Gary Shirley.
Local officials began to launch an investigation in September after seeing Portwood repeatedly hitting Shirley on an episode of Teen Mom. She allegedly attacked Gary Shirley three separate times between August 2009 and July 2010 with some of the violence captured on video.
Miss Portwood has officially been charged with two felony counts of domestic battery, one felony count of neglect of a dependent, and one misdemeanor count of domestic battery. She currently faces three years behind bars and up to $10,000 in fines if convicted on all charges.
Looks like someone won't be returning to Teen Mom next season!
Teen Mom is starting to resemble The Jerry Springer Show!
