This can’t be good. Police have formally charged Teen Mom star Amber Portwood for attacking Gary Shirley, her ex-fiance and father to her daughter Leah with 2 felonies!
Amber Portwood has been charged with 2 felony counts and one misdemeanor count of domestic violence and battery. If convicted, she faces up to 3 years in jail and fines of up to $10,000.
According to US Weekly,
Authorities launched their criminal investigation seven weeks ago after an episode of the MTV show aired in which Portwood hit Shirley, 24, numerous times. Using both that footage and unaired tapes, police charge that Portwood attacked her beau on three separate occasions.
Documents report that, on Aug. 14, 2009, she shoved, slapped and choked Shirley — all while young Leah watched nearby. On June 14, 2010, she was taped slapping, punching and kicking Shirley. Finally, on July 18, she was again caught slapping and punching him as Leah watched.
