'Teen Mom OG' star Ryan Edwards arrested on charges of simple possession of heroin
The 30-year-old reality star was arrested on charges of simple possession of heroin, the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office confirmed to ET.
He is currently being held in the Hamilton County Jail with no bond, and is expected to appear in court on Aug. 6. Simple possession is the lowest drug offense there is in Tennessee.
This is the second arrest for Edwards this year. Back in March, he was arrested at his home in Tennessee on one charge of violating his probation stemming from a prior arrest for heroin possession. At the time, his wife, Mackenzie, had just revealed in a Teen Mom OG preview that she was pregnant with their first child together. Edwards is also the father to son Bentley, 9, with fellow Teen Mom star Maci Bookout.
The news of Edwards' latest arrest comes shortly after another Teen Mom star, Jenelle Evans, allegedly pulled a gun on a man while in the car with her 8-year-old son, Jace. The incident is being played out on Monday's all-new episode of the MTV reality series.
ET has reached out to police, as well as Evans' rep and MTV, for comment regarding the incident. More on that here.
