'Teen Mom' Amber Portwood avoids prison for drug test violation
According to TMZ, Portwood, who failed to take a drug test Monday (March 5) -- a daily requirement for the reality star to avoid a five-year prison sentence for a December drug arrest -- won't be serving any time for the missed test, a judge decided Thursday. Apparently, she didn't refuse the test or come up positive for drugs -- she just didn't have to go, which unfortunately for her counts as a failed test. So the judge is making Portwood submit to another 30 days of drug testing.
Portwood, 21, tells E! News, "I would be in jail if I skipped. Honestly, I don't give a s--- what people are saying ... I'm doing what I have to do ... they are not a concern of mine."
She also reportedly skipped an AA meeting recently -- another stipulation of her probation -- for which she'll have to re-read the drug court handbook and write a report on her responsibilities as a drug court participant, reports TMZ.
Portwood better mind her pees and q's. (Sorry.)
