Remember a few weeks ago, when we were all excited about the possibility of Ryan Edwards getting sober and turning his life around?
Well, the good news is that troubled people teen Mom It appears that the star is staying away from drugs.
The bad news is that Ryan doesn’t actually need the narcissist’s help to make bad decisions!
As we reported earlier this week, Edwards was recently pulled over for going 145 MPH on his motorcycle.
He was not arrested, but has been charged with two misdemeanors.
This is a big problem, because Ryan is currently on leave from a one-year prison sentence so he can be treated for his addiction problems.
Regular drug tests indicate that Edwards has managed to stay sober with the help of Vivitrol, an injectable prescription drug that blocks the user’s cravings for alcohol and opioids.
Unfortunately, it seems as if Ryan has replaced his opioid dependency with an addiction to adrenaline.
Edwards was back in court Monday for a previously scheduled hearing.
He pleaded guilty to an earlier DUI charge, and his attorneys provided a progress report to the judge.
And while Edwards walked out of the courtroom a free man, the same judge who discharged him made it clear he was not happy with the 35-year-old’s recent conduct.
“I am very hesitant to approve it. “You going to 145 in a 65 doesn’t show any remorse to me and the ignorance of doing something like that is beyond me,” Judge Gary Starnes said in court Monday. Sun,
“I don’t know how you didn’t kill anyone.”
Prosecutors argued that Ryan should have been arrested on the spot, and now his plea agreement should be revoked because of his latest misdeeds.
“Why was he not taken to jail? It had to be reckless endangerment,” the DA said.
“I do not think so [Ryan is] Ready to succeed on any trial. I expressed concern to CADAS (Council for Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services) that he was unwilling to take probation or bond conditions seriously.
Despite that argument, Judge Stearns said he would reluctantly grant Edwards’ requested deal and continuation of the leave.
“I don’t want to approve it. You must provide the court with a comprehensive follow-up plan. “There have been hiccups that the whole world knows about,” the judge said in court.
“You have not been good in your personal life. You’re looking at three years in custody. If you get on your bike and decide you want to do it again, three years is a long time.
Ryan’s license was suspended for a year for the previous DUI charge, and he could face more jail time in the future.
He still has not entered pleas to the two most recent misdemeanors — which will be held at a hearing on Dec. 5.
