Amber Portwood Keeps an Arsenal of Weapons In Her House: Should She Be Arrested Before She Hurts Someone?

by at .

Back in July, Amber Portwood was arrested for domestic violence.

In his report to police, her then-boyfriend Andrew Glennon revealed that she had attacked him with a machete.

In an audio recording leaked on Thursday, Portwood threatened to stab Glennon.

During their intense argument, he stated that she had recently destroyed a security camera with her sword.

The situation raises many questions, chief among them -- why does Amber have so many weapons, and has she lost her damn mind?

Fortunately, The Ashley's Reality Roundup was able to get to the bottom of these mysteries.

Here's what we know so far about this increasingly bizarre situation:

1. Angry Amber

Amber's verbal abuse of Andrew gets worse from there (At one point, she fantasizes about him getting gang-raped!), but let's set that a side for a moment and focus on this sword business.

According to The Ashley, Amber not only keeps a sword in her bedroom, she had it engraved with the words "Mother Goddess."
