Another “Teen Mom” star behind bars!

Gary Shirley, the father to ex-fiancee Amber Portwood’s daughter Leah, was arrested in Indiana for driving with a suspended license on Tuesday, RadarOnline reports. Complicating matters? During his arrest, the 300-pound Shirley required two sets of handcuffs in order for cops to restrain his hands.

Shirley and Portwood (they have reportedly reconciled) were driving in his silver Dodge, when an officer noticed the combative pair arguing.

After the cop made sure the sparring couple were alright, he asked them for their identification — revealing Shirley’s suspended-license status. The report notes that, due to his hefty size, the arresting officer used two pair of cuffs.

“Both sets of handcuffs were checked for tightness and double locked,” the report says.

The reality star — his license was suspended last November — was released after posting a $3,000 bond.
