Young stars such as Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato and Justin Bieber rang in 2012 with terrific live performances last night. Countless others partied.

Amber Portwood crashed on the floor of a jail cell.

According to law enforcement sources, Indiana's Madison County Jail did not do anything to mark NYE. Visiting hours were 7:00-7:30 p.m. Amber had none.

At least she wasn't alone. Due to overcrowding, Amber has been transferred out of the cell she shared with one other inmate and into a room with several others!

Portwood's prison pals' convictions range from probation violations - which is what's keeping Amber in jail for a month - to dealing a controlled substance. Nice.

The accommodations were less than luxurious. As part of moving into that large room, instead of a bed, she slept on a vinyl mattress on the concrete floor.

This is what happens when you're arrested AND fail to comply with terms of your probation, kids ... onerous tasks such as passing drug tests and obeying laws.

As we look ahead to a new year:

  • Glass half full: Things can only get better in 2012!
  • Glass half empty: Maybe not. We said that a year ago after she spent Christmas in jail in 2010. She and Jenelle Evans often find a way to lower the bar.

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was just reamed out in an Indiana courtroom, accused of violating her probation and pulling a no-show for two urine tests.

Law enforcement sources say Portwood got popped on December 16 for possession of a controlled substance. It's unclear what exactly the substance was.

She also failed to provide mandatory urine drug screening results on December 16 and December 19. Not a smart move when you're on probation already.

Awful Amber

That's not even all. Amber Portwood is on the hook for various other alleged probation violations, including failure to complete anger management class.

A judge recently ordered her to set up a college fund for her young daughter, Leah. You can probably guess whether or not that's happened.

Spoiler: It has not.

As such, Amber was ordered to remain in custody until her hearing in late January. At that point, the Teen Mom's longer-term fate will be determined.

SIDE NOTE: This is her second straight Christmas in jail. Wow.

Sad sack Teen Mom train wreck Amber Portwood is still behind pars, and to add insult to injury, the Indiana native's latest mug shot has just been released.

Not surprisingly, she doesn't look too pleased.

Amber was arrested Monday after she failed to show up to her latest probation hearing ... and authorities sent to Amber's house found pills in her purse.

She couldn't prove she had a prescription for the pills, resulting in a clear violation of probation and another stint in jail for Portwood. Cue the mug shot:

Amber Portwood Mug Shot (New)

Portwood was on probation after she was convicted of domestic battery for attacking her ex-fiance, Gary Shirley. Amber's sentence to two years in jail was suspended, provided Portwood stuck to the rules of her probation, which was highly unlikely.

After her latest arrest, Amber could end up spending her Christmas behind bars - for the second consecutive year. A court hearing is reportedly set for January 13, and given the circumstances surrounding her case, don't expect bail to be offered.

Oh well. Check out THG's ever-expanding gallery of celebrity mug shots!

Looks like Amber Portwood is back jail.

It's not entirely clear why at this time, but a judge issued a warrant for her arrest today, and it was executed. The Teen Mom star was apprehended and booked.

The arrest may be related to Amber's most recent alleged probation violations, including a fight she got into at a restaurant last month or a new one entirely.

Amber Portwood is currently being booked at Madison County Jail in her home state of Indiana, where she's now expected to spend the night ... and the holidays.

Amber Portwood Crying

She's due to face a judge on January 13 for violating probation. We're talking every single one of her probation terms. Think Lindsay Lohan style, but worse.

Amazingly, if she does spend Christmas behind bars, it will be the second consecutive year that's happened to Amber. Signs you may have some issues ...

UPDATE: Amber's brother Shawn tells E! News that his sister missed her most recent probation hearing and, as a result, authorities went to her house.

While there, they went through her purse and found some "old pills" that Amber said were from an earlier prescription ... which she couldn't produce proof of.

Therefore, she was jailed, release date TBA. Sheriff's deputies say it "will be up to the courts to decide" how long she stays there. Not looking good.

As crazy as this sounds, Amber Portwood should take some cues from Lindsay Lohan.

The Teen Mom train wreck could end up in prison for up to two YEARS after she allegedly violated the terms of her probation - all of them, and repeatedly.

Similar to LiLo, her probation includes ONEROUS tasks such as staying sober in public and not beating up people. Clearly too much to juggle all at once.

Amber Portwood's probation officer claims she committed these violations:

  • Amber Portwood Mugshot
  • Amber Portwood Mug Shot
  • Failure to obtain a GED.
  • Failure to pay probation fees.
  • Failure to set up a $10,000 college fund for her baby daughter.
  • Failure to complete six months of anger control evaluation and classes.
  • Our personal favorite: Failure to behave well in society. Presumably this includes drinking too much and hitting a person at a restaurant last month.

The reason this is all a big deal is that Amber Portwood was given two years in jail after being convicted of beating the crap out of baby daddy Gary Shirley, however Amber's sentence was suspended on the condition that she complete probation. Yeah.

Amber's due back in court for a hearing in January, when she'll have the opportunity to explain herself. She may want to give Shawn Holley a call, STAT.

Troubled Teen Mom basket case Amber Portwood is opening up about her recent diagnosis with bipolar disorder, as well as a new man in her life.

One who she says is totally THE ONE.

"I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder three years ago. I struggle with it. I hate it. I grieve over it," the reality star told E! News in an interview.

Got (Port)Wood?

"When I went to rehab for two months, they diagnosed me with disassociative disorder too. It makes me black out. People don't understand what it's like."

Things are looking up, though. Thanks to Mike, 22.

"He's an absolutely gorgeous man. We haven't spent a day apart since we met. He's different than any of my other exes," admitted Amber Portwood.

"I always knew I wouldn't be with [baby daddy Gary Shirley] for the long term. But Mike, I know he's the one. We never fight. He balances me out."

Well ... we give it a month. But that's good to hear.

Nice to see Amber Portwood is pulling it together so well these days.

On Saturday, the same day we reported what a suicidal wreck she still is, Amber got in an altercation while drinking at the 59th Street Pub in Anderson, Ind.

Those court-ordered anger management classes? Money well spent.

Clueless Amber

An onlooker says she was drinking and got into a fight with some girls on the dance floor of the club, where the 21-year-old Teen Mom star is a regular.

“Some people can’t handle fame,” a witness says. “They were on the dance floor, it was crowded on a Saturday night, and she bumped into some girls."

Words were exchanged.

"Amber ended up saying ‘You’re just jealous because I own a house and a car,’ and that made it worse. The other girls tried, but she couldn’t let it go!”

According to the witness, Amber Portwood was drinking, but wasn’t “wasted” outside the club early in the morning when she was screaming at a girl.

“She’s just young and I think she likes being the center of attention,” the source adds. “She wants to tell everybody what she has and what she owns and that makes people mad. She basically thinks she’s better than everyone else.”

She's basically totally wrong.

Like the U.S. economy, Amber Portwood's recovery appears to have stalled.

Less than two months after checking out of a rehab center, where she was treated for both depression and anger management following a suicide attempt, the Teen Mom star was rushed to the hospital after suffering a severe panic attack.

"I couldn't breathe and I passed out," she said. "I stopped breathing."

Amber's issues, while serious and tragic, have done surprisingly little to inspire sympathy for the reality star, often criticized for partying and misplaced priorities.

"Honestly, I feel like I did two months ago. I'm still suicidal," Amber Portwood revealed to E! News yesterday.  "I'm f--king depressed. My family's not together."

Amber says she is most upset about "lies" reported by tabloids: "What hurts me the most is when people believe the lies about me. The bullying is too much."

"Look at the rate of teen deaths related to bullying. It's scary."

Oh, Teen Mom girls. You never cease to amuse ... or provide tabloid fodder.

Amber Portwood swore she'd learned a lesson after spending time in jail and rehab. You'd think Jenelle Evans would have learned something from pummeling Britany Truett. Farrah Abraham? She's just trying to "find herself," don'cha know.

One thing they all have in common? Giving up their babies to PAR-TAY!!!

Giving Up Their Babies!

Amber's brother, Shawn Portwood, says that despite her issues, Amber is spending more time out partying than she is reconnecting with her daughter, Leah, 2.

"At least three times a week, Amber will go out to bars and clubs," Shawn says.

Amber Portwood was spotted at the 59th Street Pub last month drinking wine, then another time, downing beers at Jimbo's Pub and Club in Anderson, Ind.

"My friends were there [at the 59th Street Pub] and said she drank damn near a whole bottle of white wine," Anderson local Shane Butt reveals to Life & Style.

Yes, they named their source, and his name is Shane Butt. Fantastic.

Teen Mom's third season is officially in the books after Part 2 of MTV's reunion special. So how did their "checkup" with Dr. Drew go? What did we learn Tuesday night?

Picking up where last week's special left off, with Amber Portwood walking off the set after mourning her sister's crib death years ago, Dr. Drew aired a SIDS PSA.

Too little too late to help the downward spiral that is Amber, but still, class move.

Dr. Drew spent much of last week calling out Farrah for her behavior this season. This time, we spent the majority of the time catching up with Catelynn and Maci.

Catelynn and Tyler revealed that his dad, Butch, wasn't sent back to prison because of a drug test, but for violating a no-contact order and meeting with wife April.

When Catelynn's mom came on stage, Dr. Drew asked, simply, "What the hell?"

Pinsky is kind of the man after that, we'll give him credit. As is Tyler. Why?
