According to celebrity news site TMZ, who cited law enforcement sources, Amber Portwood was renting a home that was subsidized by Indiana’s Low Income Rental Housing Tax Credit program.
TMZ reported the reality TV star claimed she made approximately $10,000, but she actually earned $280,000 in 2010.
Portwood is currently booked in the Madison County jail. She was arrested in December for felony possession of a controlled substance and violating her probation.
Portwood will remain in custody until she finds out if a judge will allow her into a drug court program. If she completes that program, the drug charges will be dropped. If she fails, Portwood will spend five years behind bars.
