On Kailyn Lowry and Lindsie Chrisley’s podcast Coffee Convos, the hosts discuss a photo of Edwards that was sent to them by a fan. “Someone sent us a message talking about how they spotted Ryan Edwards in Chattanooga,” Chrisley said. “It’s this terrible photo. He did look like he was sleeping. Not quite sure what was going on there.”
The onlooker also provided the hosts with a description of the encounter. “Ryan Edwards so f**ked up in Chattanooga this weekend with Mackenzie and his parents that he could barely hold is head up,” Chrisley read. “Face was either in his hands or his eyes were rolled in the back of his head for the entire five hours.”
Radar viewed the shocking photo of Edwards. Maci Bookout’s baby daddy could be seen sitting on a bench slouched over with his elbows on his knees and his head in his hands. His eyes are closed, as he appeared to be sleeping.
As Radar exclusively reported, the drama started when Edwards was pulled over by police on March 12, 2017 during a traffic stop for expired registration. An officer observed a hypodermic needle in an open backpack on the passenger seat. Authorities found 14 hypodermic needles, one of which was loaded with heroin, 1.8 grams of heroin, two silver spoons with residue and a scale. “I asked Edwards what it was and he replied, ‘It’s heroin and I have a problem,'” the police report read.
Edwards was issued a misdemeanor citation for simple possession of heroin, possession of drug paraphernalia and expired registration. He pled guilty to the simple possession of heroin charge and was sentenced to 11 months and 29 days in jail. The sentence was suspended upon a payment of a $750 fine and good behavior. He was ordered to take drug screenings for six months. The other offenses were dismissed.
Edwards entered rehab for heroin after he was caught on a Teen Mom OG finale slurring his words and falling asleep at the wheel while driving to his May wedding with wife Mackenzie.
Then, Edwards was arrested on March 27, 2018 for petition to revoke, which means breaking probation from his March 2017 bust. “He failed the scheduled drug test,” a source told Radar. In the January 17, 2018 drug test obtained by Radar, he tested positive for opiates and morphine in a urine sample. Heroin is classified as an opiate. An insider told Radar, “Ryan got six months probation and five public work days. He has random drug tests in between.”
Edwards' wife Mackenzie is pregnant with their first child together due in October. Radar reported they are having a son named Jagger. Edwards is also father to son Bentley, 9, with Bookout.
