Looks like one reality star won’t be enjoying the holidays this year.

“Teen Mom” star, Amber Portwood, found herself behind bars again this week after violating her probation.

Portwood was reportedly arrested for violating her probation on felony domestic battery charges Monday.

Shawn Portwood told E! News that his sister missed her most recent probation hearing and authorities went to her house. Reportedly, Portwood was found with old pills that she could not prove that she had a prescription for and was arrested.

In recent weeks, Portwood made headlines when she was accused of battery, and to make things worse she reportedly did not obtain her GED or complete anger management classes as required.

MTV’s “Teen Mom” star was arrested in Indiana after a judge issued a warrant for her arrest. She was booked at Indiana’s Madison County Jail and sits behind bars, due in court on January 13.

The 21-year-old was previously convicted of assaulting her ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley back in June and was given a suspended two-year jail sentence, reported New York Daily News.

The attack was caught on camera and aired during a previous episode of MTV’s “Teen Mom.” The episode showed Portwood getting physical with Shirley while their child was present. The incident sparked a huge public outcry and an investigation lead to Portwood’s arrest.

Back in June, the reality star attempted to commit suicide.

RadarOnline.com reported that Portwood was found unconscious with a rope around her neck and subsequently rushed to the hospital. Radar also reported that a source revealed Portwood later admitted to hospital staffers she had taken a cocktail of pills.
