Amber Portwood threatened suicide, swallowed ‘handful’ of pills and wielded a machete against her husband and son before assault arrest.
Amber Portwood assaulted her boyfriend Andrew Glennon with a machete before her domestic violence detainment, but there’s more to the shocking details of the incident.
Not only did the Teen Mom OG star threaten to take her own life, but she also gulped a “handful of pills.”
Portwood was arrested on Friday, July 5 subsequent to the shocking incident. As Radar made it public, a no-contact order was imposed.
In the Affidavit for Probable Cause extracted from Marion County Court, which The Ashley’s Reality Roundup was the first to share on, Glennon forwarded to the Department of Child Services that they intended to drive to Geist Bridge to see fireworks, but couldn’t get through the traffic. He asserted Portwood made him feel like he “dropped the ball.”
When they came back home, Portwood grabbed a shoe off the rack and bashed him with it. “Mr. Glennon stated he was holding [James] and he turned to the side to avoid him getting struck with the shoe,” the affidavit stated. He had left to get her a gift and food.
When Glennon returned, Amber came to him like she was “going to hit him.” She asked him to put James down, but he retaliated as their son was “crying and upset.”
That’s when Portwood “threatened to harm herself. “Ms. Portwood approached her drawer and took a handful of Klonopin and swallowed it down like it was nothing,” the court documents read. She “regurgitated the pills” when Andrew said he was going to seek help.
Amber then wielded the machete towards him and their son. Glennon locked himself and James in the room. The report read Portwood hit the door with the machete and kicked the door and broke the handle and that’s when he called for help.
Backup was summoned, as Portwood started “yelling at the officer.” She, however, denied the incident with the pills and machete but confessed to hitting him while he was holding their 1-year-old.
Glennon told authorities she bashed him “several times in the past” and has threatened her “innumerable” other times with physical savagery. Concerning the shoe episode, she told officials, ‘It was in the shoulder, and I merely hit him.’ She was frustrated since he recorded her “hollering.”
As Radar broke, a no-contact order was issued to secure Glennon and their kid. Portwood is required to have no firearms, lethal weapons or any sort of ammo in her possession. She is ordered to have no connection with Glennon or her son through ‘phone, letter, through a delegate, or in some other way, legitimately or by implication, except through an attorney of record.’ She is also precluded from visiting any area where she knows they could be.
Portwood was apprehended by the officials on Friday, July 5. She was released on July 6 in the wake of being bailed out. She was accused of one count of residential battery, a lawful offense tally of criminal neglectfulness with a deadly weapon, and a felony strike of domestic battery.
A source told Amber is staying with her mom as of the moment and she’s telling friends their relationship is up in the air.
However, Glennon seems to be pretty much done with her. In addition to the no-contact order, he also petitioned for paternity related orders and for a crisis hearing with respect to the authority of his tyke on Tuesday, July 9.
