Oh, no. Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood’s boyfriend, Andrew Glennon — with whom she is expecting a baby boy — was reportedly arrested for possession of heroin, ecstasy, and other substances. Radar Online reports that Andrew was busted on April 19, 2009.
According to documents obtained by the outlet from the Superior Court of Los Angeles, Andrew “unlawfully [possessed] a controlled substance, to wit, heroin” and” unlawfully [possessed] a controlled substance, to wit, MDMA (Ecstasy).” In addition, was charged with being under the influence of the controlled substance CNS stimulant, which is a form of ADHD medication.
Radar Online reports that Andrew was held on a bail of $10,000 at the time of his arrest and later accepted a plea deal of guilty. He was ordered to attend counseling for addiction and sentenced to a three-year probation for the heroin count. But his ecstasy and CNS stimulant counts were dismissed. He eventually broke his probation in July 2010 when he was arrested for possession of a firearm and deadly weapon.
According to the site, he “was charged with two counts of unlawfully owning, possessing, purchasing and receiving a handgun, one count of possession of a rifle by a felon, one count possession of a billy, which is a baton, and two counts of possession of metal knuckles.” For those charges, he was arrested and held on $170,000 bail. After pleading not guilty to all five counts, the charges were dismissed.
But the cinematographer, 33, reportedly got in trouble with law again in March 2014 when he was arrested for a DUI and ordered to serve 96 hours in an LA jail, in addition to paying court fees and fines. Despite her beau’s troubled past, Amber, 27 — who is a recovering opioid addict — seems hopeful about their future and can’t wait to welcome their bundle of joy next year.
“I just kind of sat down and thought about it and realized that it was a big step in my life and it was a good thing actually, and I was really happy within 30 minutes,” she told Us Weekly in November. "After the initial shock, it was nothing but happy thoughts and just enjoying my time with my boyfriend. We’re both very happy.”
