Amber Portwood may be spending the holidays behind bars, after the teen mom was thrown in jail, RadarOnline.com has confirmed.

The 21-year-old reality show star has had a string of troubles lately, and a judge has ruled that she violated her probation and threw her in the slammer according to the officer at the Madison County jail.

On top of losing custody of her daughter Leah to her baby daddy Gary Shirley, RadarOnline.com exclusively reported that Amber was recently caught on tape getting in a vicious fight at an Indiana restaurant.

"She was drunk, and there was another girl in the restaurant who had been drinking too and apparently said something about Amber to her friend," a source told Star.

"Amber instigated the fight. She told the girl, 'You don't know anything about me! I'm gonna whup your ass!' They just attacked each other."

In the video footage, Amber can be seen in a white t-shirt, flailing her arms wildly at the other woman before charging her.

"There were a couple of punches thrown and hair pulling, then they were separated," the witness said.

That was Amber's second time being caught on video attacking someone - the first was in a 2010 episode of the hit MTV show when she was shown hitting and slapping her ex and baby daddy, Gary Shirley.

The MTV incident eventually led to Amber being charged with domestic battery, and in 2011 she pleaded guilty and avoided jail time by striking a deal involving 30 days of inpatient treatment with outpatient follow-up, getting her high school diploma and starting a college fund for her daughter, Leah.

Amber’s next court date is scheduled for January 13, 2011, and she may have to stay in jail until that appearance.
