Reality TV star arrested on charges of resisting arrest

The Camp Verde Marshal's Office arrested a reality television star on Saturday, Sept. 11, on charges of including resisting arrest because he allegedly threatened family members after an argument with his wife and repeatedly refused to let a deputy handcuff him.

Marshals booked Bryan Masche, 32, of Florida, who stars in WE TV's "Raising Sextuplets" show, into the Yavapai County Jail in Camp Verde on charges of resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and threatening domestic violence.

At 2:30 p.m., deputies answered a call about a man threatening family members, using profanity, and becoming more aggressive at a family member's home in Camp Verde. When deputies arrived, Jenny Masche told them she and Bryan were arguing about marital issues, but that the fight did not get physical.

Jenny told deputies that Bryan wanted to take the children to Lake Havasu, but she wasn't sure he would return. So Jenny started making plans to meet friends in Phoenix, but when Bryan found out he became upset, started yelling at her and using profanities with the children around, according to the deputy's report.

"The threats to family members were not detailed in the deputy's report," said Robin Bruno, who works in records for the Camp Verde Marshal's Office.

As Bryan loaded the children's car seats and his personal items, including his firearms, into the van, a family member tried to talk him out of taking the children with him because of his behavior, and asked him to come back tomorrow when things were calmer, according to the report.

When a deputy asked Bryan if he could just leave the home for the night until things calmed down, Bryan told the deputy that his rights were being violated and that no domestic violence had occurred.

The deputy placed Bryan under arrest and tried to handcuff him, but Bryan allegedly refused to do as the deputy asked and began yelling that he had not done anything wrong, according to the report. When the deputy asked Bryan to place his hands behind his back to be handcuffed, Bryan refused again and continued yelling, according to the report.

When the deputy instructed another deputy to deploy a Taser, Bryan allowed the deputy to handcuff him.

Masche has been released on $3,500 bond.

Also: I am Tricia and the person commenting(in reference to the policies of Tucson) was responding offensively to me, hence the posting TO Tricia,so it is not Ms. Cable that you are taking issue with. Also,in response to To Tricia just because I find something objectionable, does not equal me being a victim.

That is exactly what I am suggesting took place during the late 1980's when I lived there. I am not an expert nor experienced, but the domestic disputes between couples I know personally have been the result of one partner pushing the buttons of the other partner. Being hauled in to jail for an overnight stay allows both partners the opportunity to experience the consequence. They are released in the morning and depending on how charged are given a court date or not. I don't pretend to know whether it is constitutional or not, only that it was taking place and that it was supposed to be more successful, especially with the families that were regular customers.

Ms Cable - Are you alleging the Tucson police do/did make a practice of arresting people without probable cause?? If so, that's a blatant federal civil rights violation of 42 USC 1983.
The police cannot just "take in both spouses" unless they have probable cause that BOTH committed a crime. The police can suggest you go somewhere else, but if they "take you", as you put it, that's considered an arrest.
You might want to check those facts before you publicly post erroneous information. Please be a little more circumspect in future posts. Many people are just ignorant enough to trust what you say.

Interesting how you use Dr. Phil's words to beat yourself up so you can become a victim. I like the way Tucson deals with domestic calls or at least used to. They take in both of the spouses for a chance to cool off. It does not matter who calls it in.

Interesting "Dr. Phil" how you probably were not even there, and yet can condemn not only this woman, but ALL women as being the cause of MOST domestic issues. Sounds like you have some issues of your own to work out, I imagine you don't even realize that you yourself just initiated an attack against women.

Article comment by: It is cheesy to pimp your kids.

My wife liked that Jon and Kate made 8 show, but I thought is was kinda sad. Now Kate's pimping her body on the cover of People, and still doing the kid pimp show. Some of those kids will pay for her riches unfortunately. 10 years from now they'll be in jail or in rehab or something. Not a good thing IMO. I think Americans start off loving the little kids, and then they start loving it even more when the wheels come off.

Interesting how women are usually at the root of these domestic issues and yet the men always get arrested. Sad.

Reality shows are evil - selling ones family for coin is wrong.

Article comment by: Reality about Reality TV shows

This is the sad reality of families who become famous because of their unnatural multiple children being born.... On top of trying to raise 5, 6, 7 children who are at the same stages of development, you also have the whole world watching you. I would never let everyone into my life like that, the money, fame and fortune aren't worth my family being ripped apart because of it. I wish people would learn from other peoples "mistakes" (i.e. Jon and Kate becoming greedy and ruining their family.) And now it sounds like this family is having the same problems, you should see the way they fight on the TV, I can only imagine what happens off screen.

To I don't blame him:
Domestic violence & threats of violence ARE crimes, this is what is becoming increasingly, not wrong, but stupid about our society, that any fool can become a reality "star" and think he or she is beyond reproach. And that cheese eating grin, puh-lease, it's as though he has a deluded sense of reality, that this might be publicity for him. And as Hollywood states, there is no such thing as bad publicity. Pathetic.

Can we please get back to non-reality based shows. These reality stars are not nearly as interesting as they think they are. I miss the days of music videos. For you children out there that is what MTV used to play. They take music and play short movies along with it in an attempt to make art.

The article starts off by saying the Camp Verde Marshalls Office arrested Mr. Masche, not YCSO. The Sheriff's Office has nothing to do with it other than housing him in the jail.

Article comment by: Whiskey talking here?

Whenever I see domestic disputes that occur in the wee hours I always wonder about something being consumed that leads to "agrressive" behavior and shouting. They didn't say anything about that, so maybe it didn't happen and he was sober. If so I'd say the cops are skating on thin ice trying to handcuff the guy and throw him in the pokey without charging him. They were gonna taser him too? Sounds shaky unless he was openly messed up.

I'm really curious what he said to his family to warrant an arrest. Like Roland said, all he needs to do is get a good lawyer and this will be another black eye for the good ol' boys at the YCSO.

Article comment by: Really Not So Much

To I don't blame him.....Really you would let an angry man load all of his children in a vehicle along with a bunch of firearms and leave? Are you crazy? I get that he hadn't done anything illegal but he should have just left for the night and let things calm down. I commend the officers for not letting this man leave with his children, this (person) should have left those kids home safe with their mom and let the situation calm down and then he wouldn't have been arrested.

Article comment by: You don't blame him? Lets see...angry man...taking kids..and guns...

Seems like there was reason to ask him to come back later... and once he refused..well there you go.

Did you get that he was taking the children against the mothers will? It was not just him leaving...that is in fact all they were asking him to do... was leave until cooler heads could prevail.

Once the LEO's around here are called out, they will FIND a reason to arrest you, or create one. That's just how it is out here. If the cops are called because of you, you are going to jail, no matter what!

The Police have No authority to lay hands upon anyone without charging them with a crime.
I hope he gets a good lawyer and fixes their wagon.

Is getting booked into jail really that much fun? I don't think I've grinned that big in my entire life. It must have something to do with being a "star."

Article comment by: I don't blame him

I don't blame him for resisting arrest if that is what he is being charged with. It sounds like there may be some marital stress, but that is not a crime. Being arrested goes onto your record forever and carries with it the assumption that a crime took place. Maybe we have not heard the whole story, but I suspect the wife was just as guilty. If he did not pose a real threat to anyone then just let him go about his business and leave. Why would or should an innocent man have to succumb to being handcuffed?

It's come to this? This guy is a celebrity of sorts? Something about "Raising Sextuplets"? This is worth watching and sponsors pay for these ....? Yes I'm in my 50's and like to be entertained by trained professionals like athletes, musicians, ET but once these (people) get their taste of "fame" they turn into bad boys and love the attention. Here's my list of "Famous for Nothings":
Paris Hilton
John & Kate?
Balloon boy"s dad.
Aw that's all I can think of right now but you get my point.
Don't watch this junk and it will go away.
Support real celebrities who have achievements.
Boycott the Famous for Nothings!!
Oh yeah ... Christie Alley too!!!
