“Teen Mom OG” star Amber Portwood was jailed on Friday for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend while he was holding their 1-year-old son.

Now she’s out from behind bars, and he’s fighting for custody of their baby boy, James.

Andrew Glennon filed a petition to have an emergency hearing that would determine custody and paternity of their son, E! News reports.

Portwood was arrested in Indianapolis in the early morning hours of July 5 after officers responded to a disturbance.

A statement read:

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. During which time the female, later identified as Amber Portwood assaulted him, while he was holding their one-year-old child. Officers spoke to Amber Portwood at the scene.  She was subsequently arrested for her alleged actions in this incident.

According to TMZ, Glennon told police that Portwood hit him with a shoe, which left marks on his neck.

She allegedly denied the claim and said that she only hit him on the shoulder lightly.

Marion County Police

The 29-year-old was charged with three felonies, domestic battery, criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon, and domestic battery in the presence of a child.

In 2010, Portwood was arrested for domestic battery after allegedly hitting her ex-fiance. That incident reportedly occurred in front of her older daughter, Leah.

The reality star shares custody of her daughter.

As of now, it’s unclear if Glennon was granted an emergency hearing.
