Just days before his arrest, Teen Mom star Maci Bookout had requested an order of protection against her ex Ryan Edwards. Now we have learned that she actually feared for her safety.
On March 23, Maci filed the documents, and on March 27 he got arrested for violating his probation.
The reality TV star also requested for her three kids to be included in the order.
‘He has left voicemail messages threatening to show up at my house and take my son. He’s made threats to show up and hurt me if I do not answer my phone,’ Bookout wrote in the petition.
Even worse, apparently, during a baseball game of her son, he ‘showed up under the influence of heroin and got in [her] face, yelling and threatening to hurt [her].’
Maci went on to claim that she has proof Edwards drives under the influence which is why she is extremely worried about her son.
If this is true, it would not be the first time as Maci’s baby daddy was caught by the Teen Mom cameras falling asleep at the wheel the day he was driving to his wedding with Mackenzie!
Following the shocking episode airing, he went to rehab to fix his heroin problem.
But Bookout says ‘His behavior and actions are getting worse. I’m fearful for my three children and myself, and what he may do, based on his threats.’
She wants the law to prevent him from contacting her or her kids, as well as for him to stay physically away from her house and her workplace.
In addition to that, she also made sure to check off do not ‘hurt or threaten to hurt’ pets she owns.
