Here is the police incident report from Ashley’s complaint:

“On the date of 02/02/2011 I was dispatched to station reference telephone harassment. Upon my arrival I spoke with above victim Ashley Renee Williamson who advised that an Amber Portwood kept calling her cellular phone and leaving threatening messages. Williamson showed this officer the incoming call list and indeed it was Portwood’s cellular phone number. Williamson advised that the harassment started sometime ago because she had started dealing with Portwood’s ex-boyfriend a Gary Lee Addison. Williamson advised that the tires on her personal vehicle had been cut twice but both those incidents happened in Marion County Indiana at her residence and she believed that Portwood could have been responsible for those incidents. I advised Williamson since both incidents happened within Marion County, Indiana, that she would have to file a report within the respected County with her local police department. I spoke with Portwood by telephone with the cell phone number that Williamson had given me. I spoke with Portwood and she advised that Williamson was the one calling and harassing her. I advised Portwood to not contact her at all and Williamson agreed to do the same.”
