Amber Portwood of Teen Mom fame has officially been charged with domestic violence and battery for assaulting her daughter's father, Gary Shirley, as the world watched on MTV.

HollywoodLife first reported that Portwood has been charged with two felony counts and one misdemeanor for domestic violence ad battery stemming from two separate incidents. THe first occurred on August 14, 2009 while the second took place on July 18, 2010. The police documents describe that Gary was punched, choked and kicked by Amber.

Watch one incident unfold in front of MTV's cameras:

According to HollywoodLife, Portwood faces up to three years in jail and a $10,000 fine for her actions if she's found guilty. Detective Mitch Carroll told the site that an arrest warrant will likely be issued for Amber.

In response to the report, Portwood tells HollywoodLife: "I didn’t hit Gary in front of Leah so there are no felony charges ... None of this is true, there’s nothing against me. They can’t charge me if they don’t have proof."

In a statement sent to Celebuzz, MTV noted,

"We are cooperating with all parties and hope for a quick and fair resolution that allows everyone involved to move forward in a positive manner."

    I agree. If it wasn't for this tape, she would of got off. We all know that the law protects women more than men. And seeing how big he is, I doubt the police would of believe him without it.

    Women's domestic violence against men is grossly under reported, while male victims are still routinely being ignored by the taxpayer funded domestic violence industry. Credible research overwhelmingly shows that the ratio of d.v. is at least 50/50 between women & men. http://tinyurl.com/3sakk According to one study by researchers who work at the CDC, in 70% of domestic violence incidents, where the domestic violence is not mutual, it's women who initiate the domestic violence. http://tinyurl.com/yzm9xhe The taxpayer funded domestic violence industry has largely mischaracterized the true nature of d.v. from the beginning and continues to mislead the public. D.V. law follows a gender feminist agenda/ideology over facts in evidence and does great harm to many innocent men (and also many battering women who need help) as shown in "Los Misandry" at Youtube. http://tinyurl.com/26m9m3t

    V.P. Biden recently called violence against women, "the very worst abuse." The very worst abuse is valuing one life less than another for having been born the wrong sex, or the wrong age group. Under Biden's Violence Against Women Act the wrong sex is men and the wrong age group is children. Shelter and services are virtually non-existent for male victims of domestic violence so those options out of a bad relationship, that are routinely available to women, are very often not available to men. Men wind up gender profiled and often falsely accused by the taxpayer funded, d.v. industry, because of gender feminist ideology controlling the d.v. industry. Men are often battered by domestic violence, and then battered again by the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry as shown in "Los Misandry" at Youtube.

    Little children are least able to contend with domestic violence in their families. According to the U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services and DOJ statistics, more kids are killed by neglect and abuse in a year (1,760 in 2007), than all the female intimate partner homicides in a year. Mothers are the single largest group of kid killers, according to HHS and they have a rate twice that of fathers. Nowhere near the money is spent to protect kids from kid killing mothers as is spent by the domestic violence industry to protect women. A lot of innocent men are witch-hunted by the corrupt, gender feminist influenced, taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry. Involving the corrupt d.v. industry in an attempt to prevent abusive and neglectful deaths of children is a big mistake. No place better characterizes the corruption of the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry than "Los Misandry" at Youtube. http://tinyurl.com/26m9m3t

    She says she didn't hit him in front of their daughter...it shows right on that 40 second clip that she specifically takes the baby in her car seat out of his hands, puts her on the bed and then shoves/chokes him! She's stupid if she doesn't remember that all of this has been caught on camera.

    End female on male domestic violence now!!! Violence by women against men is under reported. Society needs to start sending the clear message that women can no longer get away with physically abusing men. Sending female abusers to jail is the answer. The ONLY reason this man-beater got caught was because of the TV show. Just imagine if he had gone to the cops and said she hits him without video proof. They'd ignore him. More men need to start have their own video crew following them around.

    hmm i guess that registers as one of those moments where you really have to pay attention and think about who could potentially be watching you and your actions on tv.
