Amber Portwood may have been arrested back in July 2019, but for Teen Mom OG, the events are only just unfolding.

The mom-of-two was arrested and charged with domestic battery last summer after a fight with her baby daddy and then-boyfriend, Andrew Glennon, turned physical. Reports claimed Amber even threatened Andrew with a machete, all while he was holding their son, James. Of course, court appearances then followed, and with the the MTV series returning last week, we're seeing everything go down from the reality star herself.

In a new clip from Teen Mom OG, co-star Maci Bookout discusses the situation with her husband, Taylor McKinney. Calling the whole thing a "freaking mess," it appears Maci is trying to figure out how to handle the situation, with Taylor telling her she should be there for her friend. You can watch the video below.

"I think all you can do is what you girls have been doing at this point. You don’t have to agree with what happened or how she handled, but still support her as a friend and a sister," Taylor advises his wife. Maci is quick to agree, adding that, "We don’t know all the details or facts of what happened or what had happened before. It’s a freaking mess. It’s a lot of tough stuff for these kids to comprehend and deal with."

We'll continue to see how Amber, Andrew, and the whole Teen Mom OG crew deals with the unfortunate event as the MTV series continues every Tuesday.
