Amber Portwood was charged with domestic battery Friday morning.

According to People, a spokesperson from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department told the news outlet that the reality star was taken into custody after she allegedly assaulted her boyfriend, while he was holding their child.

“Just after 3:00 a.m., on 7.5.2019, officers were called to [address] reference a disturbance. Officers spoke to the male victim who stated his live-in-girlfriend and he were having a disagreement,” the statement read. “During which time the female, later identified as Amber Portwood assaulted him, while he was holding their one-year-old child. Officers spoke to Amber Portwood at the scene.  She was subsequently arrested for her alleged actions in this incident.”


The police didn’t release the name of the alleged victim, but Portwood has been dating boyfriend Andrew Glennon for two years. The couple has a 2-year-old son, named James. Portwood also shares 10-year-old daughter, Leah, with ex Gary Shirley.

It is still unclear if she is still in custody, entered a plea, or has an attorney.
