Just when Teen Mom fans were really rooting for Ryan Edwards to get better, he's gotten in trouble with the law again. The reality star has been arrested multiple times in the past couple of years, with many of his crimes involving drug use. Although Ryan completed rehab in late 2018, it looks like he's getting back into his old ways.
Radar Online reports Ryan was arrested in the early hours of Jan. 23 for possession of heroin and theft. According to the Hamilton County Jail in Tennessee, the father-of-two was taken into custody for theft of services under $1,000 and is currently being held on a $500 bond. They also confirmed "a warrant was likely out for his arrest in Red Bank at the time of his arrest," which is where the heroin charge came from.
According to TMZ, the theft charge stems from skipping out on a bar tab. The publication obtained police documents which claim the incident, which saw Ryan ordering $36 of drinks and failing to pay, occurred last month.
Ryan and his wife Mackenzie Standifer welcomed their first child together into the world this past October, while the father was still in rehab. He reportedly checked out early in order to be with his family on Thanksgiving. Based on photos alone, fans were sure Ryan was in a much better place.
However, reports started coming out last month about Ryan texting another woman on Tinder and planning to do drugs. He allegedly sent photos of his penis to an unidentified woman on the dating app, and asked her to do cocaine. Neither he nor Mackenzie commented publicly on the report.
We hope only the best for Ryan's well being and his suffering family at this time.
