Ryan Edwards is off the hook for one of the charges against him. The Teen Mom OG dad was arrested on Wednesday, January 23 for heroin and theft charges. RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal Edwards’ theft of services charge against him has been dismissed.
Edwards, 31, had court on Monday, February 4 at 8:30am for his theft of services under $1,000 charge. The Hamilton County General Session Clerk of Court exclusively told Radar the charge against him has been dismissed.
But Edwards isn’t free to leave jail. Radar broke in January that his simple possession of heroin charge executed by Red Bank was continued to April 15, 2019. He is to serve time in jail until then. The clerk clarified that he broke probation from a past 2017 possession of heroin charge.
Public Relations Manager for Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office J. Matt Lea told Radar that Edwards reported to Hamilton County Probation Office, where he was arrested for outstanding warrants on the two charges.
In a police report obtained from Chattanooga Police Department, a Bud’s Sports Bar server contacted police when Edwards allegedly drank and dashed on December 19, 2018. “Edwards had ordered six Jack Daniels Whiskey drinks, totaling $36, and left without paying for them” the report read.
Edwards, who shares son Bentley, 10, with ex Maci Bookout and Jagger, 4 months, with wife Mackenzie, has gotten off the hook in the past. In March 2017, police busted him with 14 hypodermic needles. One needle contained heroin. He was issued a citation.
Then in March 2018, he was arrested for petition to revoke after failing a drug test in January 2018. He tested positive for opiates and morphine in a urine sample. He was arrested again in July 2018 for breaking probation from a past possession of heroin charge. He was sentenced in both cases.
Edwards completed a 90-day rehab stint in November.
