Amber Portwood: Ordered to Stay Away from Baby Son, Boyfriend

Jul 11, 2019

Amber Portwood will be living a very lonely existence over the next several days, weeks and maybe even months.

This, after a judge handed out a harsh — albeit understandable — ruling to conclude Portwood’s hearing on Wednesday, five days after she was arrested for felony domestic violence.

According to court papers obtained from Marion County Superior Court in Indiana, Portwood has been charged with three felonies and a misdemeanor for her alleged attack against boyfriend Andrew Glennon.

The first count of domestic battery is for “knowingly touching Andrew Glennon, a family or household member in a rude, insolent or angry manner.”

The second count, meanwhile, relates to the stunning news that Portwood is accused of attacking Glennon with a machete, which is a giant sword.

Original reports had stated that Amber only stuck Glennon in the neck with a shoe during a dispute between the couple early last Friday morning — but  read down below for the latest on this ugly and violent confrontation.

This update includes a description of the machete attack.. and also the way in which Portwood threatened to kill herself.

For this second felony count, the Teen Mom OG star was charged with criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon.

“Struck the machete at and into a door, while Andrew Glennon was standing directly on the other side of the door, that created a substantial risk of bodily injury to Andrew Glennon,” the court papers read. 

For the third count of domestic battery, which is also a felony, we can now telay the following from the court:

Portwood “knowingly touched Andrew Glennon, a family or household member, in a rude, insolent, or angry manner and Amber L Portwood committed said offense in the presence of a child less than 16 years of age, knowing that the child was present and might be able to see or hear the offense.”

Multiple outlets confirm that Glennon was holding the couple’s one-year old son in his arms at the time of this assault.

He thought Amber might kill him.

This all brings us back the loneliness cited above.

The 29-year-old Teen Mom OG star was served with a no contact order in court on Wednesday, July 10.

For the foreseeable future, she is not allowed to go near Glennon or baby James.

Elsewhere, we can confirm that Portwood was accompanied by her mother, Tonya, her ex-fiancé, Gary Shirley, and his wife, Kristina, as she entered the building.

She did not speak to reporters before or after this court appearance.

Glennon, for his part, was asked by TMZ how he was holding up and simply replied: “I’ve seen better days.”

This would appear to be an understatement.

Based on a report by The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, which had access to the official legal affidavidt filed by police after they responded to a 911 text from Glennon on July 5, Amber and Andrew got into it because they had tried to take James to see July Fourth fireworks the night before.

But there was too much traffic.

It was determined they would miss the show and had to turn around — and Portwood blamed Glennon for the snafu.

To be exact, Portwood was upset that Glennon “dropped the ball” on their plan to see these fireworks, The Ashley wrote this week.

After dropping Amber off and giving her a chance to cool down, Andrew drove around for awhile with James in the car.

When he got home, Amber reacted in angry fashion, allegedly hurling a shoe with a one-inch heel at her boyfriend … downing a bunch of pills before later throwing them back up… and slashing the bathroom door with a machete after Andrew locked himself in there with their son.

Yikes, right?

If this account is accurate, that is.

Portwood went to jail in 2013 for also attacking then-boyfriend Gary Shirley, who is the father of her 10-year old daughter, Leah.

She has a history of mental illness and even joked on this week’s episode of Teen Mom OG that she’s “f-cking nuts” and is prone to violent outbursts. She wasn’t really joking, of course.

As detailed below, Glennon has filed for full custody of James:
