Detective Mitch Carroll tells HollyBaby.com exclusively that there was reportedly no rope tied around Amber’s neck when police arrived at her home in Anderson, In.
Teen Mom Amber Portwood, 21, has given all of us a scare today, June 14, after allegedly attempting to kill herself and being rushed to the hospital to receive medical attention. Now sources, including Detective Mitch Carroll, Public Information officer, tell HollyBaby.com exclusively that Amber was “coherent and able to speak” when she was discovered this morning following a call made by a family member to authorities.
“A family member called 911 at 11:34am saying that Amber L. Portwood was depressed and threatening to end her life,” Det. Carroll tells HollyBaby.com. “Two Anderson Police officers arrived, along with an ambulance and paramedics. Once they arrived they placed her in the ambulance and took her to a local medical facility.”
“There were no noticeable signs of injury,” he adds. “She was conscious and coherent and able to speak.”
When asked if Amber had a rope knotted around her neck when the police arrived, Det. Carroll said, “I don’t think that’s accurate. At least that’s not the information that I was given.”
An insider at St. John’s Hospital in Anderson, Indiana close to the situation confirms to HollyBaby.com that Amber was admitted to the emergency room earlier today and is still being treated at the hospital.
Earlier this afternoon police released a statement, “Late this morning (11:34 a.m.), Anderson Police responded to a call at a residence in the 1300 block of Pleasant Meadow Drive. According to the caller, 21-year-old Amber L. Portwood was depressed and threatening to end her life. The victim, who did not appear to be injured, was transported to a local medical facility for further evaluation.”
Meanwhile MTV release this statement Tuesday afternoon, “Our understanding is that Amber has been admitted to a local hospital but we have not been able to confirm the accuracy of any reports being circulated and are waiting for further details. Our thoughts are with her and we hope to hear more soon.”
