Teen Mom’s Amber Portwood is being investigated for assault, on her daughter’s father, Gary. If you watch the MTV show, then you saw Amber punch, hit and kick Gary as they argued. Well now Amber is being investigated for assault!
Local police have begun an investigation into an apparent assault that appeared on Tuesdayâ€™s episode of â€œTeen Mom,â€ an MTV reality show featuring Anderson residents Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley.
The pre-taped episode features a scene in which Portwood appears to hit, punch and kick her ex-fiancÃ©, Shirley, after he accuses her of being a bad mom and threatens to report her to Child Protective Services.
Lt. Paul Boulware of the Anderson Police Department said the department wasnâ€™t aware of the fight until Wednesday, when the departmentâ€™s victimâ€™s advocate received two anonymous e-mails urging police to look into the incident.
â€œWe assigned an officer to it this afternoon,â€ Boulware said.
