Police report confirms Amber Portwood arrested for prescription pills

Teen Mom Amber Portwood mug shot photos from her 2011 drug possession arrest

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was arrested on December 19 for violating her probation, and according to a police report that surfaced online today, those probation violations included being in possession of a variety of prescription pills as well as failing to submit a urine test, as mandated by her probation.

Just as Amber Portwood’s brother Shawn Portwood said earlier this week, police went to Amber’s house after she failed to show up for a probation hearing and they found prescription pills in her purse that she could not prove were hers. Statements from Sgt. John Branson of the Anderson Police Department provide a little more information, including the fact that Amber seemed “very groggy” when officers arrived on the scene.

Sgt. Branson also says in his affidavit that officers found a variety of prescription pills together in a bottle and Amber could not produce a script for the majority of them. As explanation for why she didn’t have scripts for the pills, Amber told the officers at one point that “her housekeeper throws all that kind of stuff away.”

It was later determined that Amber’s pill bottle contained 32 Hydrocodone pills, 6 Soma pills, 2 of another muscle relaxer, 3 of a different kind of Hyrdocodone, and 1 unidentifiable pill.

The fact that they were all mixed together seems to suggest that it probably wasn’t some sort of mix up or misunderstanding as Shawn Portwood suggested in his post. He claimed Amber had some “old pills” in her possession that she no longer had a script for. That doesn’t seem to jibe with having a wide variety of prescription pills in a single bottle.

Amber is still set to face a judge on January 13. Things are not looking good.

    her housekeeper throws all that kind of stuff away.”

    This fat, lazy, do nothing has a housekeeper….
    I work my butt off at the hospital taking care of patients 12 hours a day, a career which I had to go to school for. While this POS, who doesn’t even have a GED, lost custody of her kid, can’t control her temper, beats up people, has multiple random boyfriends, can’t behave in public, but can afford housekeepers.

    Yes, I hope she serves jail time and MTV pulls the plug on future paychecks!

    A housekeeper? How does she afford that when she can’t afford a college fund for her daughter. Since when did she get a housekeeper? She is supposed to be a struggling teen mom not a reality star with a housekeeper.

    • Nope.

      There is no way MTV would pull the plug on someone so volatile. Never in a million years would they pull something like that because people are attracted to train wrecks.

      Amber was paid by MTV $320,000 in 2010…also made $ from mags and pics. She can most def. afford a housekeeper.

    there’s no way she has a housekeeper. have you seen the state of her home on the show? plus, if they were legit prescriptions, she could have called her doc for proof. she’s just lying to cover her butt.
    she needs to serve some serious jail time.

    I actually kind of felt bad for Amber for a second due to the fact back in the spring she did try to commit suicide and did seem to try to get her life in order, but now, not so much. You have to be a piece of $hit mother to lose custody of a child. What ppl dont understand is that a mother losing custody is extremely difficult, so Amber must have done far worse around/to Leah for her to be stripped of her rights. I feel bad for Leah in all this. She didnt ask to be here.

    Uh…do I need to remind you guys it has been reported she makes 280 000$ a year with the show and the tabloids? She can afford a housekeeper…she can afford a college fund. We just don’t know the truth, if she started one or not.

    It sickens me too, as I work like a dog for a small salary. But I am working hard for my money, so I’m still proud of myself. She can’t say that.

      She doesn’t ‘make’ anything. She sickens me and I have no sympathy. I’m a single parent of a special needs child (although after a LOT of hard work, he’s not really in the ‘special needs’ category any longer). I went to college, work my butt off and produce for society. This idiot has ‘made’ nothing of her life, she doesn’t even have custody of her child any longer, any form of education, she’s not even ‘entertaining’, she’s cringe worthy.
      I hope she’s seen the last of MTV’s paycheck. I have no issue with Gary getting paid though. Let the camera’s follow him and Leah! He may be lazy, but he’s a much better person than Amber ever dreamed of being and he’s way too good for her skanky nasty dirty stupid ass!

    what’s wrong with this girl? what happened?!

  • old scripts

    old scripts aren’t hard to verify. Her brother could of easily got a copy or verification from the pharmacy. So I don’t believe his story.

  • Sheri

    She belongs in jail…that girl is outta control..i feel sorry for Gary and Leah…
