It appears that the embattled Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood has a very good lawyer, very good fortune or maybe a little bit of both.
About three months after the MTV personality was arrested for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend, Portwood has agreed to a plea deal.
Under the terms of that plea arrangement, she will therefore avoid any kind of trial in a case that seemed destined for a doozy of one.
This has fans across the nation wondering in response:
Will she also avoid any kind of jail time?
Scroll down for the details as we break down what happened, what's coming next and just how the heck we arrived at this point ...
Let's Start with a Refresher
For those unaware of the details in this case, Amber Portwood was arrested early on the morning of July 5 after she got into an explosive argument with boyfriend - and baby daddy - Andrew Glennon.
Well ... a lot. Sources have said Amber blamed Andrew for the family missing a July 4 fireworks show a few hours earlier, and proceeded to absolutely lose her s--t on him as a result.
That Feels Like an Overreaction
Yes, it does. Quite. But Portwood has at least been candid in the past about the trouble she has controlling her temper and emotions, telling fans she has struggled mightily with bipolar disorder and other mental health issues.
How Ugly Did It Get?
VERY. Ugly almost doesn't do it justice. Glennon has said Amber hurled a shoe at his head, something she has admitted to. But he's also claimed that he was holding one-year old son James in his arms at the time and barricaded himself in the bathroom with the toddler out of fear for their safety.
Did Amber Just Leave Them Alone at That Point?
Uhhh, no. We wish that was the worst of it. But she allegedly grabbed a machete, which obviously she had available to her (?!) and used it to try and break the door down, prompting Glennon to text 911 and the authorities to arrive on the scene.
That Still Wasn't Even All, Either
It's just insane. Andrew has said that the mother of his child then threatened to commit suicide by overdosing on clonazepam, ingesting copious quantities of that prescription medication before soon throwing all these pills back up.
