The holiday season has turned unhappy for Teen Mom's Amber Portwood.
On Monday, the Madison County prosecutor's office in Anderson, Ind., filed criminal charges against the reality star following an on-camera physical altercation with her former fiancé – and the father of her daughter Leah, 2 – Gary Shirley.
Portwood, 20, has been charged with three class D felonies, including two counts of domestic battery and one count of neglect of a dependent. She was also charged with one misdemeanor charge of domestic battery. Portwood faces up to three years in jail if convicted.
A rep for MTV had no comment on the case.
