Teen Mom star, Amber Portwood, will be walking away from her July arrest with a plea deal, according to US Magazine. If you haven't been following the case, Portwood was arrested on July 5th in Indianapolis, Indiana, and charged with two counts of domestic battery and one count of criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon. This all happened with previous boyfriend Andres Glennon.
A source told Us that Portwood, 29, will walk away with only one felony charge for the incident, in addition to being on probation for one year. During that year, as long as there aren't any problems that arise during her probation, her felony charge will then be reduced to a misdemeanor. She will not have to serve any jail time for her arrest.
The insider also shared that Portwood is “relieved but overall, she’s really just focused on James,” the son she shares with her ex-boyfriend Andrew Glennon, 35.
After Portwood's arrest, Radar Online got ahold of court documents from the Marion Superior Court, claiming that the Teen Mom OG star was wielding a machete during the fight. “[Amber] struck the machete at and into a door, while Andrew Glennon was standing directly on the other side of the door,” the legal docs stated. “That created a substantial risk of bodily injury to Andrew Glennon.”
Pretty scary stuff.
However, Portwood later shut that down while she filmed the Teen Mom OG's two-part reunion special in September. Also during the reunion special, she brought up the rumor that there was a report that a 911 operator received a text message from an individual who claimed they and their son’s life were at risk, which she also shut down.
“A text message, by the way. I just want to point that out real quick to everybody. But I ran after him with a machete,” she quipped in a sarcastic fashion. “Let me tell you what: if somebody’s coming after me with something like that, I’m calling the f–king police and running out the door.”
We all know that this isn't Portwood's first brush with the law, as she also faced two felony domestic battery counts in 2011 after situations with her ex-fiancé Gary Shirley, 32 (with whom she also shares her 10-year-old daughter Leah with). Then later that year, she was arrested for being in violation of her probation when prescription pills were found in her possession. She then served a seventeen month sentence in prison.
