By this point, quite a few of the Teen Mom cast members have mug shots. Recently, stars have been busted for drug use, abuse, and even for running a meth lab! Now the details of another cast member’s arrests are coming to light.
When he first showed up on Teen Mom, no one expected things to end up where they did. After spending time in and out of rehab, Ryan Edwards’ drug addiction seems to have recently reached an all time low. Now it’s coming out that he was busted with a massive amount of heroin.
Breaking an addiction isn’t easy, and very few people are able to do it without professional help. Even after getting treatment or going to a detox and rehabilitation center, many people relapse on their road to recovery. Unfortunately even though Ryan Edwards did his time in a rehab, he fell back into his addiction.
On March 27, Ryan was busted for heroin possession. Now it’s clear that this wasn’t a one-time incident, as Ryan was in possession of a massive amount of heroin.
According to a citation from Red Bank City Court in Tennessee and published by Radar Online, 30-year-old Ryan Edwards was pulled over at traffic stop because he had an expired tag. One officer noticed that Ryan had an open backpack in the passenger seat with hypodermic needles inside.
“I asked Edwards if he had any medical conditions and he replied, ‘No,’” the citation published by Radar reads. “I then asked why he had a hypodermic needle in his backpack and he replied, ‘I don’t know.’ I told them that the vehicle will be searched and he should inform me if there are more and Edwards replied, ‘Yes, probably.’”
“I have a problem.”
When the vehicle was searched, police found fourteen hypdoermic needles in Ryan’s possession. One of them was loaded with heroin, and there was also a “bag tied in the center console with a dark substance inside,” reports Radar. When the police officer asked what it was, Ryan replied, “It’s heroin and I have a problem.”
Officers also found two silver spoons with residue as well as a scale. Ryan was in possession of 1.8 grams of heroin.
Ryan wasn’t arrested, but he was issued a misdemeanor citation for simple possession of heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia.
