Maci Bookout reportedly hopes her baby daddy Ryan Edwards will end up spending time in jail following his latest arrest just so that he can be forced to stay away from drugs. Apparently, the Teen Mom star feels devastated watching her ex ruin his life like this.
As fans probably know, Ryan went to rehab to fix his addiction problems back in June but relapsed pretty quickly.
That being said, on July 23, Edwards was arrested for heroin possession!
At this time, the man is still behind bars with no bail, where he is set to await his August 6 court hearing.
Due to the fact that Ryan is a repeat offender and was already on probation, there is a big chance that the court will decide against sending him back to rehab and instead, sentence him up to 2.5 years in prison!
But while that will certainly not please the man, Maci feels differently.
The reality TV star seems to believe that serving a prison sentence might be exactly what he needs to get clean.
One insider told HollywoodLife that ‘Maci’s heartbroken to see what drugs have done to Ryan. She lives in fear that he is going to overdose and die so learning he was in jail was actually a huge relief because at least he is still alive and has a chance to beat this illness. Now that he is back in jail there’s hope he might finally get the longterm help he needs.’
‘While jail seems bad on the outside, Maci is praying that it will save Ryan’s life and help get him sober,’ the source went on, adding that Demi Lovato’s recent overdosing really scared her, thinking that if Ryan doesn’t get sober he might end up having the same fate or worse.
