The reality TV star is facing three charges including domestic battery, criminal recklessness committed with a deadly weapon and domestic battery committed in the presence of a child less than 16 years old, according to court documents obtained by Page Six. She was charged with domestic violence in 2010 after footage from her MTV show prompted an investigation into abuse against her boyfriend. "Amber and Andrew still really care about each other, and this is not the end of their relationship", a source close to the couple shared with US Weekly.

Yesterday, Andrew filed for a petition for paternity-related orders and asked for an emergency hearing regarding the custody of James.

The child was not hurt in the incident, according to police, who said that Glennon had red marks on his neck. News, Glennon had sent an officer a text message that read, "I need help...my life and my son's life is in danger". Glennon also "believes that it is not now in James' best interests" for Portwood "to have unsupervised parenting time". According to reports, she is said to have struck him with a shoe. The man also stated Portwood had struck him several times in the past, and had threatened him "countless" other times with physical violence.

Not long after Portwood's arrest, her ex-boyfriend and father of her oldest child Gary Shirley Tweeted his thoughts and let followers know Leah was not home at the time of the incident. "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 at the time.

"My prayers are with @AmberLPortwood, Andrew, & most importantly, baby James". Idk any of the particulars, however I'm thinking of them... "And for all the questions and concerns Leah was/is now camping with her best friend", Shirley shared.

As we've been reporting, Portwood was arrested in IN on July 5 after an alleged violent altercation with her latest baby daddy while he was reportedly holding the couple's child. However, he is taking steps to ensure the safety of their son James legally. Portwood denied the incident with the pills and the machete but admitted to hitting her boyfriend while he was holding their son.

The Teen Mom OG star was arrested by police in Indianapolis, Indiana, on Friday, after officers were called to a residence in response to a disturbance.
