It's been less than a week since Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood was arrested, and incredibly shocking details are starting to come out.
The 29-year-old MTV personality was reportedly cuffed in the early hours of July 5, after a physical fight with her boyfriend, Andrew Glennon. According to TMZ, Amber assaulted Andrew by hitting him in the neck with a shoe, while their one-year-old son, James, was in his arms. The mom-of-two was released from jail shortly after.
Now, The Ashley is going into detail on what really happened the night leading up to Amber's arrest, reporting that she apparently even threatened Andrew with a machete, after bringing up suicide. A source close to the investigation reportedly told the site that the blowout fight all began with the couple arguing over plans to see the 4th of July fireworks. It's believed Andrew dropped Amber at home to let her "cool off," which was followed by:
"Mr. Glennon stated when he got inside the home, Ms. Portwood grabbed a shoe off the shoe rack and hit him with it. Mr. Glennon stated he was holding [the baby] and he turned to the side to avoid [the baby] getting hit with the shoe," the affidavit reportedly states. "Mr. Glennon stated he then left [the house] again with [the baby]."
Andrew apparently left the house again, driving around for about three hours with James before returning with a gift and food for Amber. But things only escalated when he returned. "Mr. Glennon became visibly upset and stated Ms. Portwood then threatened to kill herself," the affidavit reportedly states. "Mr. Glennon stated Ms. Portwood went to her drawer and took a handful of Klonopin and tossed it back like it was nothing."
And before Andrew was able to call 911, things turned from bad to worse. "Mr. Glennon stated Ms. Portwood picked up a machete towards him and [the baby]. Mr. Glennon stated he locked himself and [the baby] into the office," the affidavit reportedly states. "Mr. Glennon stated she hit the door with the machete and kicked the door and broke the handle. Mr. Glennon stated that is when he called for help."
As we previously reported, Amber was arrested a little before 6:00 a.m. This week, news broke that Andrew has since filed for custody of James, unsurprisingly. Things are not looking good for Amber, but if this recent report of what happened that night is true, we think she should put her mental health first and seek help.
