Ryan Edwards: Arrested (Yes, Again) For Heroin Possession and Theft!!

by at .  Updated at .

It's happened again, Teen Mom fans.

And it's long past the point of being funny.

Officials from Hamilton County Jail in Tennessee have confirmed to Radar Online and other outlets that Ryan Edwards was arrested on Wednesday, January 23 at 12:45 a.m.

He's been charged with heroin possession and theft of services under $1,000.

We've lost track at how many times now Maci Bookout's ex has fun afoul of the law, but it's unclear what his future holds at this point.

Another jail stint? More time in rehab?

Scroll down for the latest on Edwards and join us in just feeling awful for Ryan's two sons, Jagger and Bentley...
