New Details Revealed About Teen Mom OG's Ryan Edwards' Heroin Possession Charge

It turns out Ryan Edwards was not only arrested for theft this week, but he was also booked for a heroin charge.

According to a new report, the Teen Mom OG dad was day-drinking before his latest arrest on Wednesday. Ryan reportedly took six shots of Jack Daniels whiskey over the course of four hours at Bud’s Sports Bar in Chattanooga, Tennessee but never paid.

On January 24, Radar Online shared details from a report taken by the Chattanooga Police Department, which revealed the incident had taken place on December 19, 2018.

“Edwards had ordered six Jack Daniels Whiskey drinks, totaling $36, and left without paying for them” the report read, noting that Ryan was at the venue from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m.

After the bar phoned the police, an officer was able to locate Ryan through the Criminal Justice Portal and a warrant was issued for his arrest. However, Ryan wasn’t taken into custody until over a month later, on January 23. At that point, he was charged with theft of services and was held on $500 bond.

In another police report obtained from Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department, Ryan was listed as “unemployed” and his wife, Mackenzie Standifer, was listed as his contact.

While Ryan is currently facing a drug possession charge, he was not recently found to be in possession of drugs. Instead, because he was on probation at the time of his theft arrest, the Red Bank Court system has issued a petition to revoke a charge he was dealt with back in 2017.

In a separate report from The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, it was further confirmed that the heroin possession charge pending against Ryan is not a new charge.

“His revocation of probation stems from a prior charge in Red Bank for Simple Possession on March 3, 2017,” read a statement from the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department that was shared by the outlet.

In November of last year, Ryan completed a three-month in-patient rehab program for substance abuse and returned home to his wife, Mackenzie, and their new baby, Jagger Ryan, who was born in October. Then, he reportedly suffered a relapse on Thanksgiving Day.

Ryan’s downhill spiral began in early 2017 when the reality star was arrested for simple possession of heroin. Although he ultimately checked into rehab months later, he stayed for 21 days, instead of the planned 30, and was arrested again months later after failing a drug test.

Ryan is due in court on Monday, January 28 to address his heroin possession charge and on Wednesday, February 6 to address the theft charge.

Teen Mom OG‘s new season is expected to begin production soon.
