‘Teen Mom’ alum Ryan Edwards is in hot water as he is wanted by cops for “stalking” his wife, Mackenzie and violating a protective order. Per court documents on Monday (Feb. 27), warrants were filed less than two weeks after his initial arrest for harassing his wife. Mackenzie previously alleged that he threatened her life over the phone.
Why Is Ryan Edwards Wanted By Police?
“Teen Mom” alum Ryan Edwards is once again in trouble after his recent arrest for harassing his wife, Mackenzie. The television star is wanted by cops for “stalking” and “violating a protective order” his wife previously filed against him.
The court documents suggest that the Tennessee police filed warrants against Ryan on February 23, less than two weeks after he was first arrested for harassing Mackenzie Edwards. If you aren’t aware, Ryan was taken into custody on February 10, for “harassment, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance and order of protection violation.”
Before his arrest, Ryan took to Instagram and posted a photo of Mackenzie’s bare chest to his social media along with a defaming caption: “If you guys have never seen a spineless slut this is one. They take your money and sleep with anything that looks at them. But they must have a wife to [sic]. God, what a joke. It’s sad really.”
A Series Of Domestic Abuse…
The complaint comes after Ryan’s defamatory post against Mackenzie, who went to the police the next morning and provided details about constant domestic abuse incidents since their marriage in 2017.
“Arguing, Ryan punched holes in the walls and doors. [He] held me up by my neck to the wall. Threw me down in the hallway and said if he could not have me no one could,” Mackenzie informed the police about a fight that occurred in January.
She continued, “Opened pocket knife, put to my back like he was going to kill me. This was in front of children. I tried to leave, but he smashed my phone, and took my car keys.” Mackenzie revealed that her co-worker had to call the police after this incident took place.
In another instance, Mackenzie, who shares kids, Jagger (4) and Stella (3), revealed that the couple had another fight where Ryan came to her bedroom and pretended like “he’s going to punch my face, breaks bed with me in it. Getting in my face yelling.” As a result, she had to take her kids and leave but Ryan threw her down in the living room and even poured menthol nicotine into her eyes.
It is reported that Ryan allegedly threatened his wife after claiming that she cheated on him. While she was granted the temporary restraining order until Feb.27, it came out that the hearing has been delayed. This is not the first time that Ryan had a run-in with legal authorities.
In 2018, he was arrested for violating his” probation on a heroin-related charge”. This led his ex-wife, Maci Bookout, to fetch a restraining order against him. In the same year, he was sentenced to a 3-month stint behind the bards for “possession of heroin”.
