The drama never stops for Teen Mom star Amber Portwood, even in the normally happy holiday season.

Amber was arrested on Monday afternoon after being formally charged for allegedly beating her former fiance and baby daddy, Gary Shirley.

Madison County has charged the MTV reality show star with three class D felonies, including two counts of domestic violence and one count of neglect of a dependent, following a slew of on-and-off-camera fights with Gary.

Watch a clip of one fight below.

Amber allegedly beat up Gary on three separate occasions between August 2009 and July 2010. She has also been charged with one misdemeanor count of domestic battery. The 20-year-old star faces up to three years in prison if she is convicted.

According to TMZ, Amber was booked at 4:21 PM EST and placed on "24-hour hold." Her bail has been set at $5,000.

    This is long overdue. She should face the full extent of the law. That's the only way to show the world media domestic violence is handled equally between the sexes especially considering recent events.

    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 domestic violence is at least 50/50 between women & men. Go to Fiebert Bibliography. According to one study by researchers who work at the CDC, in 70 percent of domestic violence incidents, where the d.v. is not mutual, it's women who initiate the d. v.

D.v. law follows a gender feminist agenda over facts & does great harm to many innocent men & also many violent women. Go to Youtube, “Los Misandry.”

    Hubby of teen mom is certainly no wimp. If he'd made any effort to defend himself from the domestic violence of a woman, he'd likely be looking at hard time. Wise up!

    Deaths of little children, killed by their mothers is egregious, yet the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry disingenuously tries to make us believe that women don't abuse men too. 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. The taxpayer funded d.v. industry is a bastion of misandrist vilification, falsely accusing men of being the overwhelming cause of d.v., and empowering violent women to commit further domestic violence. The corruption of the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry is characterized in "Los Misandry" at Youtube.

    Domestic violence will never end as long as the whole truth about it is misrepresented to comply with feminist ideology. 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 gender. Under domestic violence law, the wrong gender is men. Shelter and services are virtually non-existent for male victims of domestic violence. Options out of a bad relationship, that women have, are often not available to men. Men wind up gender profiled and falsely accused by the taxpayer funded, domestic violence 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.
