MTV 'Teen Mom' star gets probation on battery plea

ANDERSON, IN Anderson police investigated the then-20-year-old Amber Portwood after a September episode showed her slapping, choking and kicking the then-24-year-old father of her daughter with the child present.

Madison Superior Court Judge David Happe tells The Herald Bulletin that as part of the plea deal he approved Thursday prosecutors dropped a felony child neglect charge against Portwood.

Happe also ordered Portwood to undergo 30 days of inpatient therapy, obtain her high school diploma and put $10,000 in a college fund for her 2-year-old daughter.
