Edwards, 30, was arrested on July 23 for petition to revoke, which means breaking probation from a past simple possession of heroin arrest. An arrest warrant exclusively obtained by Radar revealed he missed a May 21, 2018 court date. The warrant was issued a day later on May 22, 2018.
“When officers showed up at this house to arrest him, he tried to argue and almost ended up fighting a police officer” a source told Radar.
The Red Bank Police Department arrested Edwards and he is currently in Hamilton County Jail with no bond. He has a court date on August 6. The Ashley’s Reality Roundup was the first to report on the arrest.
Edwards was pulled over by police on March 12, 2017. He was issued a citation for simple possession of heroin. Officers confiscated 14 hypodermic needles, one that was loaded with heroin, and a bag with a dark substance inside. According to the citation, he confessed to police that he “has a problem.”
He went to rehab after he was caught on camera slurring his words and falling asleep at the wheel on the way to his wedding in May 2017.
He was arrested on March 27, 2018 for petition to revoke after he failed a scheduled drug test on January 17, 2018. He tested positive for opiates and morphine in a urine sample. He got “six months probation and five public work days with random drug tests in between,” a source told Radar.
Things got worse for Edwards when his baby mama Maci Bookout and her husband Taylor McKinney slapped him with separate restraining orders. Bookout claimed he threatened her while high on drugs, as McKinney alleged he threatened to put a bullet in his head. The orders were granted for two years, with Bookout and McKinney’s children Jayde, 3, and Maverick, 2, under the order as well. Edwards’ son Bentley, 9, with Bookout was dropped from the order.
