If Amber Portwood stays with her current streak, pretty soon she's going to have quite the mug shot collection.

E! News obtained the reality star's most recent mug shot Tuesday, just in time for the final season of Teen Mom on MTV. In the pic, taken when Portwood was placed behind bars last week for violating her probation, the 21-year-old is expressionless but looks like she can barely keep her eyes open.

Portwood claimed she missed her court date because she was recovering, per doctor's orders, from gallbladder surgery. Appearing in court, however, is a term of her probation that stems from her arrest and incarceration for drug possession last December.

Before this most recent stint behind bars, Portwood was incarcerated from December through February after authorities found a medication in her purse for which she had no prescription.

The reality star's brother, Shawn Portwood, told E! News last week it was really "sad" his sister was sent back to jail, "because just the other day Amber was talking about [how] she was so happy to finally be turning her life around."

"She said she was going to work hard to get her charge reduced," he added. "Her new goal is to join the military. She's been doing so well."

Teen Mom's final season premieres on June 12 at 10 p.m. on MTV.
