Police in Anderson, Ind., are serious about getting to the bottom of the domestic violence investigation involving MTV's "Teen Mom" stars Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley. In an episode from season two, Portwood was seen punching then-fiance Shirley repeatedly. On Monday, law enforcement delivered a subpoena to MTV, demanding footage of the incident.
Investigators want "any and all records reference raw television or video media footage regarding ... 'Teen Mom' which depict all or potentially all physically violent encounters between Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley, in addition to any raw footage of the 'Reunion Shows' in (which) Portwood and Shirley discuss any such violent encounters on the show 'Teen Mom,' either 'aired' or 'unaired," the filing said. (See the document on Radar Online.)
Radar Online reports that MTV is cooperating fully. "MTV sent all the material ahead of time and once the subpoena was issued, they said we could have access to the records," Mitch Carroll, the spokesman for the Anderson Police Department, told the website.
