It was earlier this month when Ryan Edwards, the star of Teen Mom OG was arrested for violating his probation. You may not remember, but last year shortly before Ryan admitted himself into a drug addiction centre, he was arrested in March 2017.
Details on that arrest remained unknown, until now.
New details have been revealed from Ryan's arrest in March 2017. According to reports, Ryan was caught by police in his car with a large amount of heroin and multiple syringes at the time of his arrest. And by multiple syringes, I literally mean he was caught with 14 syringes in his car.
When he was stopped by police, an officer saw the hypodermic needle in an open backpack on the passenger seat. He asked Ryan to step out of the vehicle. "I asked Edwards if he had any medical conditions and he replied, 'No.' I then asked why he had a hypodermic needle in his backpack and he replied, 'I don't know'".
If you watch Teen Mom OG, then you know that this sounds like a typical response from Ryan. He usually lets others do the speaking for him and remains tight-lipped on the show, barely saying any words during an entire episode.
The officer then searched his car and discovered "approximately 14 hypodermic needles, one of which was loaded with heroin, two silver spoons with residue on them" and 1.8 grams of heroin.
Finally, when the officer asked about the heroin, Ryan responded: "It's heroin and I have a problem."
After this incident in March, Ryan checked into rehab in May 2017. Just last month, Ryan was arrested for violating his probation for the first arrest.
Before today, the reasons for his first arrest in March of 2017 remained a mystery. Now, we finally know more about the incident that led Ryan to check into rehab.
