WE TV’s Raising Sextuplets dad arrested for threatening domestic violence

The father in Raising Sextuplets, WE TV’s knock-off of Jon & Kate Plus 8, has been arrested for threatening his family and resisting arrest. Bryan Masche was arrested Sept. 11 in Arizona and was released on bond.

The Daily Courier reports that he was arrested “on charges of resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and threatening domestic violence” “because he allegedly threatened family members after an argument with his wife and repeatedly refused to let a deputy handcuff him.” Us Weekly’s report says he was almost tasered.

A Marshal’s Office spokesperson told Radar that deputies helped a “female victim,” but doesn’t say if that’s Jennifer Masche, his wife. The spokesperson also said “The children were not at the house at the time.”

Here’s a clip from the show that highlights the conflict in their relationship:
