Although Amber Portwood‘s new beau Andrew Glennon has been pretty open about his depression and alcohol abuse, we wonder if the Teen Mom star knows about his battle with drug use and problems with the law! We have learned that Glennon was arrested for possession of ecstasy, heroin and other harmful substances once, but that was not his last encounter with the law.
According to court documents obtained from the L.A. Superior Court, the man was arrested in April of 2009.
‘[Andrew Glennon] unlawfully possessed a controlled substance, to wit, heroin. [Glennon] unlawfully possessed a controlled substance, to wit, MDMA (Ecstasy),’ the papers read.
He was also charged with being under the influence of CNS stimulant, a medication usually used for treating ADHD.
At the time of his arrest, Glennon was held on a $10,000 bail.
He pled guilty and was placed on three years long probation.
He was also required to attend psychological counseling, alcohol and drug treatment, narcotic replacement therapy, drug education, to register as a narcotics offender, not possess or use any alcohol or narcotics.
Finally, he was also ordered to pay court fines.
But Glennon broke his probation in 2010 when he was arrested for possessing a deadly weapon and firearms.
He was held on $170,000 bail but pled not guilty, and the accusations against him were then dismissed.
Four years later, he had yet another encounter with the law when he was arrested for drinking and driving.
He spent 96 hours in jail and was ordered to pay court fines and fees.
As you may remember, back in September, the man opened up about his struggle with depression and alcohol abuse.
‘I’ve been through so much pain in my life. My father was diagnosed with prostate cancer while my mother was fighting breast cancer. I prepped myself to potentially lose both my parents. My mother survived, but my father didn’t. Depression, drinking and throwing my heart through any open door. It nearly cost my life,’ he shared.
Amber and her boyfriend are now expecting a baby together.
