The Ashley reports that the 29-year-old was charged with three felonies, including “Criminal Recklessness Committed with a Deadly Weapon.” Portwood’s boyfriend and baby daddy, Andrew Glennon, reportedly told police that Portwood came at him with a machete and hit him with a shoe.
Portwood has been served a “no contact order” for Glennon and their son, James, but it has not been revealed how long the order will last. When TMZ tried to talk to Portwood outside the courthouse, she stated she didn’t want to comment. She was accompanied by her mother, Tonya Portwood, her other baby daddy Gary Shirley and his wife Kristina, and her MTV producer David Birch.
Portwood was not filming for MTV during the incident.
A pretrial conference in regards to Portwood’s criminal charges has been set for July 26.
