Exclusive! Police Confiscated Four Guns From 'Raising Sextuplets' Dad Bryan Masche When He Was Arrested!

The story surrounding the arrest of Bryan Masche on domestic violence charges 10 days ago is getting more and more crazy. Police tell exclusively that he had three rifles and a handgun in his car!

Bryan Masche, who is best known as the dad of six 3-year-olds on the WE channel’s Raising Sextuplets, is now viewed as a potential threat by Arizona police, who confiscated four guns from the reality star’s car when he was arrested on domestic violence charges on Sept. 11!

Despite knowing that Bryan has an interest in guns and “blowing things up in the desert” (as detailed on his WE TV biography) we were shocked when we read the Camp Verde Marshal’s Office police report that stated that Bryan had firearms in his vehicle when he was arrested in Arizona. Brian was threatened with a Taser after he resisted arrest and was forced by police officers to lie on the ground.

Upon further investigation, learned that the 32-year-old had four guns in the back of the family minivan:  a Ruger Mini 14 rifle, an AR-15 rifle, a Mossberg rifle and a Glock pistol.

“There were four weapons in total,” the Camp Verde public information officer confirmed to “Three rifles and a pistol were all taken into custody for safe-keeping. The guns were in the back of the van and whenever you have domestic violence charges in Arizona, the weapons are taken into custody. He will not get these back until the case has been adjudicated.”

Yikes! We’re glad that nobody was hurt, but why did Bryan feel the need to take three rifles and a pistol with him when the family left Florida to visit relatives in Arizona? And isn’t it dangerous for him to have them in such close proximity to six curious 3-year-olds?

We told you earlier that Bryan’s mother, Laura Masche, said that “the truth would come out” about her son, and alluded to the idea that he has been wrongly targeted over this dispute with his wife, Jennifer, 35.

According to the police report, the couple were fighting over whether to take their six children to Phoenix, or Lake Havasu City (where Bryan’s family live). He was later detained at the Yavapai County Detention Center and eventually was released on $3,500 bail. He is expected back in court Oct. 7 for a pre-trail conference.
