The drama is only increasing for Teen Mom‘s Amber Portwood. She may be trying to move forward from the MTV episode that showed her allegedly hitting Leah’s father Gary Shirley, but the police are moving forward with their case against her as well.
According to E! News, police plan to subpoena MTV for the unedited footage from Teen Mom in which Amber is seen fighting with Gary.
“We’re looking for any behavior that would be considered to be unlawful where the law is broken,” Indiana’s Anderson Police Department spokesman Mitch Carroll explained.
Carroll also said the subpoena to MTV is currently being drafted.
“From what we have seen so far from the allegations, and we have to bear in mind that we’re dealing with edited footage, it could be something as simple as misdemeanor domestic violence battery — a Class A misdemeanor,” he added. “Or if it is in fact found to have occurred in the presence of a child less than 14 years of age it could be upgraded to a Class D felony.”
From what we remember from the episode, that doesn’t sound good for Amber! But what do you think?
The investigation remains open and the police say both Amber and Gary have fully cooperated and even provided statements.
