Teen Mom OG star Ryan Edwards was arrested yet again. This time for possession of heroin and pulling a drink and dash on his bar bill for whiskey. What’s most disturbing is that this latest mess comes hot on the heels of his latest rehab stint.
Certainly, it looks like Ryan is still haunted by his demons of addiction and bad decisions. Wife Mackenzie Edwards spoke out on social media about the opioid crisis and addiction. Here’s the latest on Ryan’s brand new arrest.
Teen Mom: Ryan Edwards Mugshot for Heroin Arrest
Ryan Edwards’ arrest comes on the heels of his recent rehab stay. The Teen Mom OG dad finished his latest round of addiction treatment during the holiday season. He celebrated Christmas and the new year with wife Mackenzie Edwards and infant son Jagger. In recent Instagram snaps, he looked happy and healthy.
This latest trouble started when Teen Mom’s Ryan Edwards didn’t pay his bar tab. He was swigging whiskey and decided to dash on the bill. That led to the more serious charge for possession of heroin – a controlled substance. All that ties back to a prior heroin-related offense in Red Bank, Tennessee.

Teen Mom OG: Ryan Edwards’ Drink and Dash
As for his drinking and dashing, there’s more to that as well. It all started at a sports bar a few days before Christmas. It’s alleged that Ryan had six whiskeys totaling $36 on his tab. The bartender claims the troubled reality star ditched on the bill at Bud’s Sport Bar, so he called the cops because he recognized the Teen Mom dad.
If Ryan Edwards knowingly walked out of the bar without paying, the question is why. Perhaps he was too intoxicated after six drinks to remember to pay. If so, was he over-served to the point of poor judgment? That’s a lot of whiskey to let someone pour down their throat at your establishment.
Mackenzie Edwards Home Alone With Baby Jagger
Right now, Ryan remains behind bars without bond for an outstanding warrant related to the heroin charge. And it looks like he’ll spend the weekend in jail until he goes before a judge on Monday, January 28. That means his wife and infant son are home alone without daddy in the picture.
Assuming he walks out of jail on Monday, Ryan Edwards faces another court date on February 6 for not paying his booze bill. Mackenzie Edwards gave birth to baby Jagger back in October 2018. Its been a rough road for the couple as he reportedly was using hookup app Tinder and scoping out new women.
Can Ryan Edwards stay out of trouble? If convicted, the Teen Mom OG father might wind up behind bars for a longer stint on either of these recent charges. We’ll keep you updated on developments on Ryan Edwards’ arrest and legal problems.
