Amber was taken into custody in Indianapolis, Indiana after officers were called to a residence in response to a disturbance, according to multiple reports.
“Just after 3:00 a.m., on July 5, 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. During which time the female, later identified as Amber Portwood assaulted him, while he was holding their one-year-old child,” a spokesperson for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement obtained by People.
“Officers spoke to Amber Portwood at the scene. She was subsequently arrested for her alleged actions in this incident,” the statement continued.
Amber Portwood opened up about experiencing severe postpartum depression, during the Dec. 17 episode of Teen Mom OG.
“There was a night that I was waiting for [Andrew] and James to go to bed so I could kill myself. And for some odd reason he could feel it and he was like, ‘I’m not going to bed,’” Amber said of her boyfriend. “It does not feel good to go and do things. It does not feel good to be alive right now.”
