"Just after 3:00 a.m., on 7.5.2019, officers were called to [address] reference a disturbance". Officers spoke to the male victim who stated his live-in-girlfriend and he were having a disagreement. This morning, there was reportedly an order issued granting the motion for a no-contact order.
The court documents state that Portwood has the machete as a means of protection as she is unable to possess a firearm, and that Glennon stated that she took ownership of a machete after hearing a gunshot in the neighborhood and keeps it on the side of her bed.
Per dispatch audio of the alleged incident, Glennon claimed his and his son's lives were in danger.
The affidavit says Portwood admitted to the officer that she struck her boyfriend with the shoe, but said "it was in the shoulder, and I barely hit him".
On July 5, the 29-year-old Teen Mom star was arrested after allegedly assaulting her boyfriend in their in home while he was holding their 1-year-old son, James. While Portwood has been bailed out of jail, her legal troubles are nowhere near over.
What charges is Amber Portwood facing? Now, new court documents accuse Portwood of wielding a machete during the alleged altercation. The second felony charge is that Portwood knowingly touched him in a "rude, insolent or angry manner" in the presence of a child. She was charged with three felonies: domestic battery, domestic battery committed in the presence of a child less than 16 years old and criminal recklessness committed with a deadly weapon.
According to Glennon, Portwood's outburst was because he "dropped the ball" on plans so see the fireworks on the 4th of July.
After that incident, the boyfriend claims Portwood came at him with a machette and he locked himself and their son into another room.
Apparently, the Teen Mom star was also suicidal and threatening to kill herself.
As a result of the assault and everything else that happened that night, Andrew is also pursuing sole custody of their son, James, and has already filed the necessary papers. "Amber and Andrew still really care about each other and this is not the end of their relationship".
The 28-year-old reality star "took a handful of Klonopin and tossed it back like it was nothing" amid her violent meltdown, according to the affidavit for probable cause in the case, as reported by The Ashley's Reality Roundup. Shirley sent his wishes to Portwood and Glennon on Twitter after the news of Amber's arrest broke. When the boyfriend threatened to call for help she "regurgitated the pills".
