Amber Portwood, one of the stars of MTV’s reality show, Teen Mom (she was previously profiled on 16 & Pregnant) is being investigated by authorities in her home town of Anderson, Indiana after an episode which showed her being physically abusive towards her ex-fiance Gary Shirley. Fans of the show will recognize Amber’s volatile behavior and lack of patience when dealing with her young daughter, 1-year-old Leah.
Mitch Carroll, the police chief in town talked to Radar Online about the case, stating they began a file once the episode aired last Tuesday, saying ““Anytime you have photographic or video evidence it helps.” Amber is also being investigated by Child Protective Services.
Leah was present during the fight on last week’s episode. The argument started when Gary called Amber a bad mom and threatened to report her. A representative for Child Protective Services refused to comment to Radar, citing confidentiality laws.
