'Teen Mom' Amber charged with felonies

Season two of the MTV hit

Police in Anderson, Ind., have officially charged "Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood with two felonies and one misdemeanor for domestic battery.

During a September episode of season two of the MTV hit show, Portwood was seen repeatedly slapping, punching and kicking her then-fiance, Gary Shirley. Police said that Portwood is facing felony charges because Portwood and Shirley's young daughter, Leah, was present when the alleged violence occurred.

Portwood faces fines of up to $10,000 and three years in jail if she's convicted.

Though Leah is currently living with her dad, Shirley, and Portwood is facing some major legal trouble, a source close to the 20-year-old mom told Life & Style, "Amber's not in any rush to get Leah back. ... She has all this fame, she has all this attention. That's what she wants. She wants to party. She's not a very good mother right now."
