Teen Mom star Gary Shirley was arrested this morning. Incredibly, a fight with Amber Portwood wasn't the reason ... although they were having one at the time!

According to the police report, Shirley was arrested in Alexandria, Ind., at 1:34 a.m. on a Class A misdemeanor charge of driving with a suspended license.

“I observed a Silver Dodge stopped on the south side of Berry street. I could hear a female arguing with a male inside the vehicle ..." the report reads.

Gary Shirley had his picture taken earlier this morning.

Gary's booking photo instantly becomes one of the bigger celebrity mug shots in our gallery. And just so you know, we don't mean bigger as in the size of the .jpg file or severity of the criminal charges against him.

Apparently Gary's wooing of Amber with sexy texts didn't last.

“I asked the male sitting in the driver seat if everything was okay and he advised yes. The female also advised that everything was fine," the officer writes.

Gary Shirley and Amber Portwood used to be engaged. No longer.

The big daddy has engaged his baby mama in a series of flirty, sexy text messages, however, prompting speculation that it might not be over yet!

Gary kicked off the online flirting with a Tweet last week at Amber, writing, "I love you so much. I miss u too. See you tomorrow beautiful girl.”

He followed that with “I support you any day.” Later, a private response spurred Gary to Tweet, “your text is cracking me up your [sic] too cute.”

Amber Portwood appears just as much into it, Tweeting, “Awe babe love you too and I had a blast at Peppers it was great being w friends.”

Then Monday, Gary continued the lovefest: “miss u baby wish u were here with me I’d hold u all night. Ps I’m kissing u thru this tweet. Muaw.”

We think that's a kiss. Which is kind of gross. Get a room you two!

Just two days after losing primary custody of her daughter, Leah, to baby daddy and occasional fiance Gary Shirley, Teen Mom wreck Amber Portwood partied it up with Shirley at a bar to celebrate her 21st birthday.

Pretty standard for the Anderson, Ind., couple.

Congratulations to Amber on reaching the big 2-1, and more importantly, for marking the milestone last Saturday but not getting arrested! Baby steps!

Amber, Gary and Leah make one big, happy family. Emphasis on .. forget it.

We actually haven't heard much from Amber Portwood in recent weeks, which likely means she's staying out of trouble and getting her $h!t together.

Well, maybe not, but let's take a glass-half-full attitude in honor of her birthday, shall we? She could certainly use all the help she can get ...

Gary Shirley and Amber Portwood of Teen Mom fame are not together.

Despite many public sightings with his baby mama in recent weeks - sometimes, they even hold hands - Big Daddy tweeted Wednesday that he's single.

What a Messer

But, just FYI, "of course I got a [daughter] Leah no matter what."

Gary Shirley is back on the market, ladies. Adorable little girl included!

Portwood was charged with three felonies after an attack on Gary Shirley - likely not the first or last of its kind - on an episode of Teen Mom last year.

The Indiana native has been trying to turn things around of late, refraining from trashing Amber in the press and even vowing to lose 100 pounds.

Perhaps a new, more stable woman in his life is the next step.

A hundred pounds.

That's how overweight Gary Shirley of Teen Mom baby daddy fame is. And the pride of Anderson, Ind., vows that extra weight will come off. All of it.

Hey, you gotta aim high, and Gary has already dropped eight since he decided to start working out with a trainer two weeks ago. Just 92 to go man!

He's been working with Rodney Razor at Stay Fit 24 gym in his hometown. Currently weighing in at 320 lbs, Gary says he's going to cut that back to 220.

Gary's workout consists of intense cardio, treadmill and elliptical exercises, and weight training ... or as it's also known to fitness experts, "exercise."

His trainer also recommends a low-carb diet, stressing a healthy breakfast and eating every 3-4 hours, otherwise known to professionals as "diet."

"I definitely want to see him lose and I’ll do everything in my power to see it happen, but it just takes commitment on his part," the trainer said.

If his relationship with Amber Portwood is any indication, it's an uphill climb.

Break out the champagne. Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is no longer subject to a No Contact Order barring her from communication with Gary Shirley.

The on-off/often-sparring couple are finally allowed to talk and hang out again after an Indiana judge modified the restraining order against Portwood.

Giving Up Their Babies!

But there's a major catch. The judge is refusing to allow Gary and Amber to be around their daughter, Leah, at the same time. Probably for the best.

You know what's always a risk with Amber and Gary.

SLAP HAPPY: The three of them are only allowed to be in the same room while trading custody of Leah. Probably for the best, so Leah doesn't see more of this.

Portwood still faces two felony counts of domestic battery, one felony count of neglect of a dependent, and one misdemeanor count of domestic battery.

That's for allegedly beating Gary's ass in front of Leah and MTV cameras last fall. Portwood filed a police report against Shirley as recently as last week.

Amber is also accused of harassing his girlfriend Ashley Williamson, but there's no sign of any strife now. The couple "hugged it out" in court today.

Troubled Teen Mom star Amber Portwood claims baby daddy Gary Shirley made "sexually vulgar" comments in a series of harassing phone calls last week.

According to a police report filed in Anderson, Ind., Ambs received 24 calls from a blocked ID between 11:56 p.m. February 3 and 5:21 a.m. on February 4.

Amber Portwood claims she recognized the voices as Gary and his "friend" Ashley Williamson - who Amber is accused of harassing on multiple occasions.

THAT HURTS: According to Amber, Gary's words did.

Amber told police she could hear Ashley threatening to kick her ass during the calls and that Gary was repeatedly saying "sexually vulgar" things to her.

Portwood, who faces assault charges for her televised attacks on Gary, claims the comments were SO vulgar, she wouldn't be more specific to police.

Gary has denied the calls and no further action has been taken by police. Yet. They should be arriving for this week's incident tonight or tomorrow.

Teen Mom stars Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley involved in an altercation that resulted in the cops being called? We can't imagine a bigger surprise.

Sure enough, the troubled mother of Leah called the police and filed a complaint against Gary Shirley, the father of their daughter, yesterday afternoon.

Please No More Babies

The MTV star told police that Gary was harassing her with phone calls and that Gary's girlfriend Ashley was heard on the phone in the background.

TEEN MOM DRAMA: This is an old screen shot. But probably an accurate account of yesterday's scuffle as well. At least it wouldn't surprise us. You?

Lieutenant Jerry Miller confirmed that police were called Thursday at 5:19 pm.

“[Amber Portwood] is saying that Gary was harassing her with phone calls and Ashley could be heard in the background," he said. “A report was taken.”

The police incident report says Amber requested cops go check on Gary after they made contact with her, in violation of the No Contact Order in place.

Ashley tells Radar Online that it's all blown out of proportion.

Another day, another Amber Portwood scandal.

This time, the troubled Teen Mom star stands accused of badgering her baby daddy's new girlfriend Ashley, who is filing a formal complaint against Amber.

Amber and Leah (Teen Mom)

Gary Shirley's new piece "mistakenly texted" Amber last week, setting her off into a frenzy of texts and calls to Ashley, according to a source close to her.

BABY MAMA DRAMA: Gary's always had plenty of that.

“Amber kept calling and harassing Ashley, asking her to ‘meet up’ so she could ‘beat her a$$,’” said the source. “Ashley wasn’t even responding at first."

However, "Amber just kept going, calling her a ‘fat a$$ pot belly pig’ and even had a guy friend call to try and scare Ashley pretending he was a cop.”

It gets worse. Gary then got on the phone with Amber to try and calm her down – a violation of the No Contact Order placed on the parents of Leah.

Every little thing that you do, baby, I'm amazed by you.

That's the message Gary Shirley set out to convey to Amber Portwood by serenading her with this stirring rendition of "Amazed," the 1999 hit by Lonestar.

It may have even worked. According to TMZ, which got its hands on this classic, Amber totally melted when her baby daddy and ex-fiance sent this video.

Gary recorded his cover of "Amazed" - their "song," shortly after Amber Portwood was ordered to stay away from him after walloping his ass on TV.

Bet he hasn't performed this for Autumn Jones, though!

We'll give Gary this much. At least he's trying. And can play a few guitar chords. As wannabe reality TV musicians go, he's way above Spencer Pratt.

Seriously, follow the link in the previous sentence to listen to some of Pratt's recent efforts. Prepare to have your mind blown ... and ears bleed out.
