Report: 'Teen Mom' Amber violated probation

Seems "Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood just can't stay out of trouble.

Ever since MTV showed the young mother slapping and punching baby daddy and then-boyfriend Gary Shirley in season two of the popular docuseries, Portwood has had some serious legal (and personal) issues. Among them: child-custody issues, alleged attempted suicide, rehab and of course, the domestic violence charges for the incident with her ex.

After pleading guilty in June to two counts of felony domestic battery, the judge suspended Portwood's two-year jail sentence and put her on two years of probation.

But it sounds like Portwood hasn't been good while on probation. TMZ reports that her probation officer is claiming that the reality TV personality has violated her terms by failing to pay probation fees, not setting up a college fund for daughter Leah, not obtaining her GED and not behaving "well in society."

Our pals over at E! Online also got their hands on the probation violation report. Among the list of offenses, it is noted in the report that Portwood "took substantial steps to comission the criminal offense(s) of Battery and Public Intoxication." (According to TMZ, Portwood had too much to drink at a restaurant and hit someone in November.)

Portwood is due back in court on Jan. 13 and could do time if the judge revokes her probation.

Is jail the wake-up call that Amber needs? Share your thoughts on our Facebook page.
