A star of the MTV reality show “Teen Mom” has been ordered to jail in central Indiana for violating her probation on felony domestic battery charges.

Court records show that probation revocation was sought for Amber Portwood of Anderson after she was accused of battery and public intoxication in connection with a fight in November. She is also accused of not obtaining her GED or completing anger management classes as required.

Madison Circuit Court Judge David Happe tells The Herald Bulletin that Portwood was arrested Monday. The judge ordered her jailed until a Jan. 13 hearing.

Police investigated the then-20-year-old Portwood after a 2010 episode showed her hitting the then-24-year-old father of her daughter with the child present.

A message seeking comment was left for her attorney, Robert Schembs.
