Last month, former Teen Mom OG star Ryan Edwards was arrested on charges theft and heroin possession.
The good news is, the theft charge has since been dropped.
The bad news is … well, it’s plentiful:
The possession charge isn’t going anywhere, and since Ryan was on probation at the time of his arrest, he’ll remain behind bars at least until his court date on April 15.
Fortunately, Ryan’s wife, Mackenzie Standifer, is not without a support system on the outside.
And these days, she’s receiving help from some very unexpected sources.

So… will THIS be the final straw?
That’s what many Teen Mom fans are wondering about Ryan Edwards got arrested for the umpteenth time last week, taken into custody after he bailed on paying a bar tab.
With an outstanding warrant also floating around, police took Edwards into custody on charges of both theft AND drug possession, adding to a permanent legal record that is chock full of mug shots and court hearings.
What will happen next to the former MTV personality?
We can’t say, from a legal point of view.
From a personal one, however? Scroll down to get an idea of what wife Mackenzie is thinking at the moment…

So, yeah. Ryan Edwards …
It’s just not going great.
If you stop and think about it, the troubled, turbulent Teen Mom OG star had just gotten a chance to turn his life around entirely:
He’s fresh out of rehab with a new baby son Jagger and a wife, Mackenzie Standifer, who for some strange reason still loves him.
But the guy just can’t seem to get it together. No sooner did Maci Bookout’s ex get out of rehab then he got on … Tinder.
Oh yes. And now it looks like he’s ruining everything. Wait until you read the details of his online hookup, and its aftermath.

Sigh. Well, folks, the “maybe Ryan Edwards isn’t such a terrible guy, after all” narrative was fun while it lasted.
As you probably know, Ryan got out of rehab last month after completing a 90-day course of treatment.
Those closest to the troubled Teen Mom OG star claimed he’d changed his ways, but it looks as though he’s already fallen back into his old habits.
Earlier this week, we learned that Ryan is once again using Tinder to try and cheat on Mackenzie Standifer.
And according to new screenshots obtained by Radar Online, he’s off the wagon and looking to get high with some of his hookup partners.
Here’s what we know about this sad situation so far:

The road to sobriety isn’t easy for any addict, but many Teen Mom OG fans predicted it would be especially difficult for Ryan Edwards.
Ryan completed rehab last month, and he immediately returned to a life of tremendous responsibilities and obligations.
His wife, Mackenzie Standifer, gave birth to son Jagger while Ryan was in treatment, which means Edwards came home to a new son, a notoriously troubled marriage, and the eyes of millions of Teen Mom fans watching his every move.
It’s a great deal of pressure, and sadly, it seems the couple is already showing signs of strain.
But they’re still doing their best to maintain a pleasant facade on social media.

From on-camera brawls to social media feuds and legal threats, the cast of Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 sure know how to go hard.
Engagements. Breakups. Marriages. Babies.
Moments that made you cringe because they were so painful, or smile ear-to-ear. Scenes that were fights, or made you fight back tears.
The franchise really does have it all, and as such, it’s become one of the most entertaining in the history of the reality TV genre.
Below, we look back at some of the MTV gang’s most explosive feuds, and however you might rank them, this much is undeniable:
There were no shortage of them.

Mackenzie Standifer may be relatively new to the world of Teen Mom OG, but she’s already biting the hand that feeds her like a seasoned pro.
Standifer took to Instagram to gripe about the show’s producers this week, and the response from fans has been — mixed.
After all, this is the show that fired Mackenzie and Ryan at their lowest point.
Then again, where would Mackenzie be right now if the show hadn’t taken her back?
Here’s what we know about the situation thus far:

It’s been about a week since Ryan Edwards got out of rehab, and the former Teen Mom OG star has been keeping a low profile during that time.
That’s a very good thing, as the last time he checked out of a treatment facility, Edwards immediately started bashing Maci Bookout on Instagram.
This time around, he’s keeping his nose clean, focusing on his sobriety, and spending time with his newborn son.
But that doesn’t mean we’re totally in the dark about how Ryan is doing these days.
Both Maci and Ryan’s wife, Mackenzie Standifer, have offered updates recently, and so far, fans like what they’re seeing.
Take a look:
1. Triumphant Ryan
2. Sticking It Out
3. Moves Like Jagger
4. The Return
Earlier this week, we reported on the news that Ryan Edwards had returned home following a second stint in rehab.
There were some conflicting reports regarding Ryan’s start and end dates, and it was widely rumored that he had once again left treatment early.
Now, however, Ryan’s long-suffering wife, Mackenzie Standifer, has come forward to clear the air.
In a series of new social media posts, she makes some interesting claims about Ryan — and she also invites Teen Mom OG fans to kindly butt out of her life.

Well, folks, what should be some fairly straightforward good news has been complicated by a tangle of rumors, rebuttals, and mistruths, but we’re gonna go ahead and focus on the positive for a moment:
Ryan Edwards has checked out of rehab and is now back at home with his long-suffering wife and infant son.
As for when Ryan left treatment and whether or not he completed the entire 90-day program … well, none of that is entirely clear at the moment.
Here’s what we know so far:
1. Back With Mack!
2. Timeline Trouble

Back in October, Ryan Edwards checked into rehab after years of battling substance abuse issues.
His intentions were clear, and the stakes couldn’t have been higher.
With a second child on the way, his marriage hanging in the balance, and a slew of legal issues threatening his freedom, Ryan needed to break his addiction to heroin.
Now, the troubled Teen Mom OG star is confident that he’ll be able to stay clean, but there’s still ample cause for concern.
