Radar was first to report Amber's domestic violence arrest on July 5 after allegedly attacking her boyfriend Andrew Glennon with a machete.
Amber, who is also mother to daughter Leah, 10, with ex Gary Shirley, saw her son during a supervised visit on July 18. The meeting was the first time she saw her son since her July 5 arrest.
Laying On The Charges
She was charged with one count of domestic battery, a felony count of criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon and a felony count of domestic battery.
In an Affidavit for Probable Cause obtained by Radar, Amber made Andrew feel like he “dropped the ball” because they couldn’t get through traffic to see fireworks. When they returned home, she hit him with a shoe.
5After back-and-forth bickering upon returning home, Andrew locked himself and their son in a room when she allegedly picked up a machete, which she had in her home for protection. “She hit the door with the machete and kicked the door and broke the handle,” the report read. On July 9, Glennon filed a Combined Verified Petition for Paternity Related Orders and Emergency Hearing Regarding Custody of a Child. He is also asking for child support, insurance and payment of medical expenses.
