INDIANAPOLIS — An Indiana native and star on MTV's 'Teen Mom OG' was arrested Friday morning for battery.

Amber Portwood was arrested Friday at her home in Indianapolis by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. Police responded to the home on Anchorage Drive just after 3 a.m. for a disturbance.

Arriving officers say the male victim told them his live-in-girlfriend assaulted him while he was holding their one-year-old child.

Portwood has two kids, ages 1 and 10. She and her boyfriend, Andrew Glennon, recently had a pregnancy scare on the "Teen Mom OG" show, according to TMZ.

Portwood is preliminarily charged with felony domestic battery with a child under 16 present.

This isn't Portwood's first brush with the law. She spent 17 months in prison in 2012 after violating her probation from a drug possession case.
