by at .  Updated at .

We have an update on the troubling Amber Portwood situation.

As you very likely know by now, the Teen Mom OG star was arrested early in the morning of July 5 after she allegedly attacked Andrew Glennon.

Making matters even more troubling and worrisome? Glennon was holding the couple's one-year old son, James, in his hands at the time.

Pretty scary stuff all around, as Amber was booked on a FELONY charge of domestic violence.

Nope. He's clearly still very mad and the future of this relationship is now in question.

She was due in court for a hearing on Monday, but it has now been moved Wednesday, July 10, after “the state asked for a continuance.”

Could We Have Seen This Coming?
Yes and no. Amber had just gushed and gushed over Glennon, referring to him as a "beautiful" person in an interview just this past spring with Us Weekly.

14. HOWEVER...

There are a couple of other factors at play here. For starters, she actually ALSO attacked ex-boyfriend and first baby daddy Gary Shirley in 2010, eventually ending up in prison for 17 months as a result of this arrest.

15. She is Also Bipolar

She is Also Bipolar
We are not passing judgment on Amber here at all. Not one bit. But she has talked openly about this diagnosis and how it causes her to lose control at times.

16. She Actually JUST Talked About This

The episode of Teen Mom OG that aired on July 8 actually focused a great deal on Portwood's mental state and history of mental illness after Cheyenne Floyd nicely asked Amber for an explanation.

17. Really? How Fortuitous...

Really? How Fortuitous...
We know, right? Amber said this on air on Monday night: "Obviously since the day we started this show, I've been f-cking nuts, so I mean, come on."

"You know what I mean. Like, I've been beating up people, going in jail and all that."

19. She'd Never Hurt James, Though

She'd Never Hurt James, Though
Not on purpose, of course not. But her point here is that she really can't control herself when certain things happen and/or set her off.

20. So, Now What?!?

So, Now What?!?
We don't know. Will Andrew dump her? Might she lose custody of James? We may know more after her upcoming hearing. Stay tuned, fans.
