Amber Portwood Is Back In Jail For Lied Wages, Pills

05/14/2012 08:37 PM ET

Teen Mom reality star Amber Portwood is back in jail after she missed one of her court-mandated weekly drug tests, but lied about a medical condition as the reason, and there’s talk about those pills and wages that would come back to haunt her.

The troubled mom told officials that she was recovering from laparoscopic gallbladder surgery and was on “doctor-ordered bed rest” for 2-3 weeks — but the doctor later said he gave no such order.

TMZ reports that Amber could remain in custody for several weeks. But Portwood should be feeling right at home in her cell. This isn’t her first time behind bars.

In December 2011, the “Teen Mom” was arrested for drug possession and probation violation. Although she did initially spend time in jail for the class D felony — to which she pled guilty on all charges — she was later awarded a plea deal and released to a rehab facility, avoiding a 5-year jail sentence.

Before her drug-related arrest, Portwood was in the middle of serving 2 years probation for domestic battery.

She infamously assaulted the father of her child, Gary Shirley, while “Teen Mom” cameras were rolling.

Do you think the judge will remove Portwood’s probation?
