Amber Portwood's new boyfriend Andrew Glennon has been open about his struggle with alcohol and depression, but does the Teen Mom OG star know about his battle with drugs? RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal Glennon was once arrested for possession of heroin, ecstasy and other substances!
Court papers obtained from Superior Court of Los Angeles reveal Glennon was arrested on April 19, 2009.
"Glennon did unlawfully possess a controlled substance, to wit, heroin," the court papers read of the first count, as the second count read, "Glennon did unlawfully possess a controlled substance, to wit, MDMA (Ecstasy)."
For the third count, Glennon was charged with being under the influence of the controlled substance CNS stimulant, which is a medication that is often used to treat ADHD.
He was held on a bail of $10,000 at the time of his arrest.
He accepted a plea deal of guilty. He was placed on a three-year probation for the heroin count, while the MDMA and CNS stimulant counts were dismissed.
He was ordered to attend psychiatric and/or psychological counseling, alcohol and/or drug treatment, out-patient, in-patient residential, narcotic replacement therapy, drug education and prevention or counseling, register as a convicted narcotics offender, not use or posses any narcotics, not drink or posses any alcoholic beverage, and other terms. He was also ordered to pay court fines.
Glennon would eventually go on to break his probation, as he was arrested for possession of a firearm and deadly weapon in July 2010.
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.
He was arrested and held on $170,000 bail. He pled not guilty to all five counts and the charges against him were dismissed.
Then on March 3, 2014, he was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. He was ordered to serve 96 hours in Los Angeles County Jail and pay court fines and fees.
In September, Glennon opened up to Radar his struggle with alcohol and depression.
"I have been through so much pain in my life," he told Radar. "My father was diagnosed with prostate cancer while my mother was fighting breast cancer. I prepped myself to potentially lose both of my parents. My mother survived, but my father did not."
The death of his father forced him to fall into a "tailspin."
"Depression, drinking and throwing my heart through any open door," he said. "It nearly cost my life."
Portwood and Glennon are expecting a baby boy together.
