Teen Mom’s Amber Portwood can’t seem to stay out of trouble, can she? The MTV reality star is in jail after being charged with felony domestic battery and felony child neglect in an incident caught on tape for the popular reality program, which follows teenage mothers like Portwood and Maci Bookout. Daughter Leah has already been made a ward of the state. After this latest brush with the law, should Amber Portwood’s arrest lead authorities to take away her daughter for good?
It’s unclear what will happen to the child. Father Gary Shirley, the victim of Portwood’s assault, handles some of the childcare duties as well, but Amber was banned from seeing her daughter without someone with her earlier this year.
It’s so sad that Leah’s life can’t be more normal and that this whole mess is going on in the first place. Let’s hope the arrest is the wakeup Amber needs to start being more responsible.
