Teen Mom OG alum Ryan Edwards was sentenced to prison on Thursday, Champion Daily has learned.
Edwards, 35, was sentenced to 11 months and 29 days in prison on harassment charges, according to filings from Tennessee’s Hamilton County Court.
This comes after Edwards was arrested on April 7 for charges related to possession of a controlled substance, DUI and violating the terms of his probation.
Before his arrest, Edwards was found “unconscious and unresponsive” in the driver’s seat of his truck while the car was “running and in drive” and transported to the hospital for treatment where he eventually regained consciousness, per the affidavit obtained by us.
Edwards had a bag containing what appeared to be a “crystal type substance” as well as a “second small bag of what appeared to be a blue powder,” according to the filings.
If you have been out of the loop, earlier this week Hamilton County police released body cam footage of an incident that took place on February 10, 2023 after he left chilling threats to his estranged wife, Mackenzie, scrawled on the walls of their Tennessee home after a terrifying rampage.
Bodycam footage of the damaged home released by the authorities reveal the terrifying messages Ryan allegedly left for his estranged wife.
On the wall leading to the downstairs of the home Mackenzie purchased in 2019, were multiple long paragraphs with chilling messages to the mom of three.
One message from a police photo read: “True is what? F**king true. God ur so f**king fake. You did this to yourself.”
He also wrote derogatory words in blue spray paint.
In her bedroom, the word “sl*t” was written in blue graffiti on the headboard.

Edwards was previously arrested on March 1 for stalking and violation of an order of protection two days after his wife Mackenzie reportedly filed for divorce from the former reality star and obtained a restraining order against him, per E! News. The outlet reported that MacKenzie was also granted temporary custody of the couple’s children, Jagger, 5, and Stella, 2.
As part of the plea deal, Edwards was required to complete a rehab treatment program or serve a sentence of 11 months and 29 days and have no contact with MacKenzie, 26, “except as allowed by the circuit court,” the records stated.
The television personality was first arrested for possession of heroin on March 12, 2017, according to the Red Bank County clerk’s office. In March 2018, he was arrested for violating terms of his probation stemming from the charge, and he was arrested again that July for violating probation a second time.
Edwards was also arrested in January 2019 and charged with theft of services for allegedly walking out of a bar the month before without paying a $36 bill.
Edwards has long battled substance abuse, even missing Jagger’s 2018 birth while in treatment.
