'Teen Mom' Maci Bookout gets a 2-year restriction order against ex-boyfriend Ryan Edwards
Teen Mom Maci Bookout gets a restricting order against her ex Ryan Edwards after she claimed he threateheed to hurt her.
The Maci-Edwards drama does not seem to come to an end. Ryan Edwards has compounded his problems with his arrest over heroin-related charges and now his ex Maci Bookout has secured a two-year restriction order against him, according to E!. This comes after Maci claimed that Ryan threatened to hurt her and take their son Bentley, 9 away from her. Ryan's lawyer, Jonathan Turner told the website that he is not allowed to be within 100 feet of Maci and her husband Taylor McKinney and their two children- Jayde 2 and Maverick, 24 months.
However, this will not stop Ryan from meeting their son, Bentley. Jonathan said it will give him “a lot more protection against any false allegations, allows him to avoid getting arrested without a hearing first, and allows him to be around his son most importantly.” Maci initially filed the reports with Hamilton County Circuit Court in March. Maci confessed that Ryan had previously threatened her over calls and that had led her to make the decision of filing a complaint.
“He has left voicemail messages threatening to show up at my house and take my son,” she claimed. “He has made threats to show up and hurt me if I don’t answer my phone.” During her son's baseball game in May 2017, Maci claimed that Ryan “showed up under the influence of heroin and got in my face, yelling and threatening to hurt me.”
She further added that she fears for her son's safety because she had proof that he often drives while under the influence.
Maci believes that Ryan's behavior was not getting any better. “His behavior and actions are getting worse,” she alleged. “I am fearful for my three children and myself, and what he may do, based on his threats.”
In the past, video of Ryan slurring his words and falling asleep at the wheel was caught on camera. After this aired, he entered rehab for heroin abuse. The clip showed Ryan losing control and falling unconscious on the wheels while on the way to his wedding with Mackenzie Standifer Edwards. It has also been reported that Ryan has failed his drug test after his arrest. After hearing Maci's side of the story and seeing how Ryan has been doing, the court thought it would be best to issue a restraining order.
