People Magazine is reporting the ever-so-lovely Amber Portwood has been officially arrested and is being held in jail for 24 hours after turning herself in. A warrant was issued for her arrest yesterday, and I’m sure she took this opportunity to get all dolled up because you never know if you’ll meet the man of your dreams in jail. The only bad part about this is I don’t think MTV was recording the events for the next season. It would have been great to see Amber go to jail and come out with a few guys phone numbers, then watch as she speed dates when they’re released.
Oh well, maybe her next arrest. Anyway, details of the story:
“Domestic battery has an automatic 24 hold,” an officer at the Madison County jail in Anderson, Ind., where Portwood is being held told PEOPLE. “Even if someone pays your bond, you still have to wait 24 hours to be released.”
Earlier on Monday, Portwood was charged by the Madison County prosecutor with three 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. She was booked at 4:21 p.m. and bail was set at $5,000.
Enjoy your time in jail, Amber. I hope this is a little reality check for you. Probably not, though.
