It's a development that could carry major legal repercussions for Edwards, who is reportedly noe coming to terms with the fact that he may be forced to serve time behind bars.

2. The Secret History

4. The Test

The Test
According to documents obtained by Radar Online, back in January, Ryan failed a drug test that was a mandated part of his probation. He tested positive for opiates, leading many to the conclusion that he's been less than honest about kicking his heroin habit.

5. Back In Custody

"He failed the scheduled drug test," one insider tells Radar, confirming that Mackenzie was not being truthful when she claimed Ryan's arrest was routine. "That is why they charged him with petition to revoke."

8. Losing Support

A Crumbling Marriage?
That may have something to do with the bombshell revelation that came just 24 hours after news of Ryan's arrest. Mackenzie's worst fears came to life, as three women claimed that Ryan had contacted them online using the dating app Tinder.

11. It's All Connected

It's All Connected
Ryan's infidelity may not be tied to his legal problems, but his cheating might well be a result of his drug use. Whatever the case, it's unlikely to do him any favors in the eyes of the judge who will soon to determine whether or not Edwards needs to be locked up. In fact, Edwards seems hell-bent on proving that he's severely lacking in the character department...

12. Orders of Protections

Orders of Protections

17. Back to Rehab

Ryan's best hope for avoiding prison time is to check himself into an in-patient rehab program. It wouldn't be his first time seeking treatment, but his family reportedly hopes this time will be different.

18. Second Time's the Charm

Ryan ended his first stint in rehab several weeks ahead of schedule and did not follow up with the necessary after-care. This time, he might be inclined to take his treatment a bit more seriously...

19. The End of the Line

If he doesn't, of course, this will be the end of life as Ryan knows it. In addition to prison time, he's running the risk of being permanently barred from seeing his children. If that's not enough to motivate him to get sober, but we don't what would be.
