Amber Portwood Turns Herself In

by at . Comments

Hours after she was charged with multiple felonies, Amber Portwood turned herself in to authorities late yesterday afternoon.

The troubled Teen Mom was placed in an Indiana jail, per the law, said an officer at the Madison County jail: "Domestic battery has an automatic hold. Even if someone pays your bond, you still have to wait 24 hours to be released."

The 20-year-old MTV star allegedly attacked Gary Shirley on three separate occasions over the last 12 months. He's the father of her two-year-old daughter, Leah.

Amber is expected to be released from prison at 4:15 EST. She faces two felony counts of domestic battery, one felony count of neglect of a dependent and one misdemeanor count of domestic battery.

Wonder how tough the little bitch was acting in her cell.

Gary, the baby's daddy would be much better off taking his little daughter away from Amber and raising her on his own. Amber has some major anger issues and is too self centered to take care of a child at this point in her life.

I agree some of these teen mothers are so careless with their children. These kids are precious and helpless and they should be treated with more love and care. It amazes me that Amber and Farah put their own needs first over their babies needs. Girls like this dump their kids off with anyone who will take care of them just so they can go out and hang out with friends, party, get laid, etc. Their babies could get sexually and/or physically abused while they are out getting screwed by a "hot" guy. And the safety of a baby is way more important than a hot guy. They should give these children to the grandmothers or another family member who will care for the child properly. These girls should only get their children back after they learn to put their child's needs and safety before their own needs.

I was a teen mom & I am appalled out how Amber & Farrah take care of their babies. This one, Amber should have her daughter taken away, she sleeps all day & lets the kid scream in the crib, then she moves in an ex con that she met at walmart & let's him take care of & change the baby. She is a piece of trash & I don't want to hear it's because she young.
