The cause of Teen Mom OG alum Ryan Edwards' Wednesday, March 1, arrest has been revealed.

On two separate occasions in February, the reality star reached out to his estranged wife, Mackenzie Standifer, via text message, which violated a recent court-ordered protection agreement that prohibited any form of contact with the mother-of-three.

"Mrs. Edwards didn’t respond to any messages from Mr. Edwards," the court papers confirmed of Standifer — who recently filed for divorce from her husband of nearly six years on Monday, February 27.

The order of protection was granted to Standifer at the time of Edwards' first arrest on Friday, February 10. Edwards had been taken into custody for harassment, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance, as OK! previously reported.

"Opened pocket knife, put to my back like he was going to kill me. This was in front of children. I tried to leave, he smashed my phone, took my car keys," the file confessed, noting that a coworker then called 911.

During a Tuesday, January 24, fight, Standifer claimed: "[He] came into bedroom where I was laying down. Pretending like he’s going to punch my face. Breaks bed with me in it. Getting in my face yelling. I went to get kids and leave. He wouldn’t let me leave. Threw me down in living room. Threw menthol nicotine in my eyes."
