It’s back to the slammer for troubled Teen Mom Amber Portwood.
Prosecutors say she lied about having a medical condition that prevented her from making a mandated weekly drug court appointment.
The drug court no-show happened last week when Amber told officials she was on doctor-ordered bed rest following laparoscopic gallbladder surgery. According to TMZ‘s sources, Amber’s attorney told the court she was ordered to remain in bed for 2-3 weeks.
Amber’s case manager wasn’t convinced and decided to follow up on the claim with Amber’s doctor, who informed the case worker that her excuse wasn’t accurate and that she was certainly well enough to have made her drug court appearance as scheduled.
After this info came out, Amber was taken right back to jail and will apparently cool heels there for a couple of weeks until a judge decides what to do with her. When Amber avoided a long jail sentence back in the day, stemming from her Gary Shirley beat down in front of their daughter Leah, she was told she would be strictly regulated and that any hiccups would land her behind bars.
We’ll see what happens but I’m afraid that Amber may have finally went too far and will spend some lengthy time in jail as a repercussion.
