Ryan Christopher Edwards, a father whose struggle has been portrayed in the MTV reality TV series "Teen Mom," is once again in custody in the Hamilton County Jail.

The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office (HCSO) says Edwards was arrested for outstanding warrants Wednesday afternoon while he was reporting to the probation office.

In a statement, Chattanooga PD say the warrants stem from a December 19 incident.

Police say a server at Bud's Sports Bar at 5751 Brainerd Road reported Edwards was at the bar from noon until 4 p.m., and ordered six Jack Daniels Whiskey drinks. The report says he left without paying the $36 owed.

The HCSO says Edwards was on probation after being convicted of simple possession out of Red Bank.

When he reported for probation Wednesday afternoon, he was arrested and booked into Hamilton County Jail with no bond.

Edwards has been charged with theft under $1,000. His court date is set for February 6.
