Sextuplet Dad Bryan Masche Arrested

By Anya

A local Arizona newspaper has reported that Bryan Masche, father of three-year-old sextuplets and star of the WETV’s “Raising Sextuplets” was arrested last Saturday, September 11th. 

According to the Verde Independent: “Bryan Masche, 32, was arrested following an investigation in which he is alleged to have threatened his family and began yelling and using profanities within a residence on Gilbert Way.

The charges mounted when he did not comply with Camp Verde Marshal’s deputies’ commands.

Masche was charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and threatening per domestic violence.

He was booked into the Yavapai County Detention Center. He has subsequently been released on bond.”

IW wrote about the Masche’s last July. You can read the piece here.  At the time, “Raising Sextuplets” was airing its second season. Some viewers were beginning to compare the Masche’s to Jon and Kate Gosselin. It is fair to say that the Masche’s were pretty candid about the emotional and financial toll that raising sextuplets brings. Bryan was shown at times being condesending to Jenny and losing his temper with her and the children. At the end of season 2, the Masche’s had moved from Arizona (where both sets of grandparents reside) to Florida to make a fresh start. They expressed a desire to not rely on the grandparents as much and do more on their own. Jenny is a physician’s assistant and quickly found work at a local hospital. Bryan was shown trying to build a financial planning business.

In August, Bryan announced via his Twitter account that that the family and WETV had agreed to film a third season of “Raising Sextuplets” and filming would begin immediately.

Bryan has also shared recently via Twitter his struggles with controlling his anger and depression and his steps to take control of these issues. He has indicated that he has stopped taking Prozac and is relying on this faith and counseling to help him with his issues. It should be noted that Bryan is a veteran who served three tours in the Gulf. Of course, those who have not served cannot begin to truly comprehend what is like to return to civilian life after service.  

It appears that Bryan returned to Arizona from Florida very recently to attend to business and family affairs.

Some will happily point fingers at reality TV or pass judgment on Bryan without access to all the facts of this particular situation. What is the harm in withholding  judgment and just wishing the best for the family? I am sure they would appreciate your kind wishes.
