Amber Portwood Charged With Three Felonies, Boyfriend Files for Custody
Teen Mom star Amber Portwood has been charged with three felonies after being arrested for domestic battery against boyfriend Andrew Glennon earlier this month. The 29-year-old is facing charges of domestic battery, criminal recklessness committed with a deadly weapon and domestic battery committed in the presence of a child less than 16 years old, according to court records obtained by Page Six.
Her prior conviction was also noted in court papers. In 2012, Portwood served 17 months behind bars for violating probation in a drug possession case.
Page Six reports that the "deadly weapon" was a machete, which she used to strike a door when Glennon was on the other side of it. She and Glennon share James, 1. Glennon has filed documents to request an emergency hearing to demand sole custody of their son.
