The arrest of MTV mom Debra Danielson, after allegedly attacking her daughter, fellow MTV star Farrah Abraham on Saturday, January 16, was not a surprise to their neighbors.
Norma Tegoseak, who lives near the family in Council Bluffs, Iowa, told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview: “I’ve seen the police at their house numerous times.”
According to neighbors, the family has been mean towards local kids as well. 12-year-old neighbor Miranda Smits told RadarOnline.com about Farrah’s reputation. “I know that she is kind of mean, I went to smell her flowers,” she described. “She yelled at me and told me not to pick them.”
Vallory Hatcher, another 12-year-old neighbor said “If you come near her house she’ll yell at you.” Miranda Smits also said that Farrah was rude to her brother when he was walking by their house. “Farrah yelled out the window that he’s white trash.”
Farrah Abraham is one of the teenage subjects of the MTV documentary reality series Teen Mom, and according to the incident report filed with the Council Bluffs Police Department in Iowa, she and her mother Debra were arguing in the kitchen “over child care issues as well as other problems” when Danielson threw an MTV t-shirt at her daughter which ended up landing near or on her grandchild who subsequently woke up crying. From there, things escalated.
“The victim was yelling at Danielson over the shirt throwing and Danielson grabbed her by the throat. The victim pushed Danielson’s hand away from her. Victim stated the Danielson then hit her along the side of her head and hit her in the mouth,” read the report.
The officer on the scene said, “I observed multiple cuts to the right side of the victim’s mouth.” The women live together and photos of Abraham’s neck and face were taken at the scene.
Danielson was arrested for “Domestic Abuse Serious Assault” and later released on her own recognizance.
Danielson is scheduled to be arraigned in court Wednesday, January 20 on the charge. At that time, she is expected to enter a plea.
Both Miranda and Vallory like the show Teen Mom, telling RadarOnline.com “I like seeing the babies.” Neighbor Norma Tegoseak said, “Maybe it will help bring more awareness” about the problems facing children having children.
