(ANDERSON, IN) - An Anderson woman known for her role on the MTV reality series “Teen Mom” has been released from the Madison County Jail.

20-year-old Amber Portwood pleaded not guilty Tuesday to domestic battery and neglect of a dependent.

The allegations stem from episodes of "Teen Mom" in which Portwood is seen slapping, punching and kicking her boyfriend Gary Shirley in front of their young daughter.

If convicted, Portwood faces up to three years in jail and a $10,000 fine.
