Santa Rosa Beach - It hasn't been a smooth ride for the family we introduced you to in July, as they try to raise their family of sextuplets, and survive the pressures of living a reality show.

Bryan Masche, the famous father of sextuplets who stars in the reality TV show, "Raising Sextuplets," was arrested when an argument the couple was having escalated to the point that the police were called.

Bryan is being charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and threatening domestic violence.

Though the family lives in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, the arrest happened at a home in the small town 90 miles north of Phoenix on September 11.

The thirty-two year old was arrested and taken to the Yavapi County Detention Center, and later released on a $3,500 dollar bond, according to 'People' magazine.

Bryan allegedly resisted arrest until he was threatened with a Taser. After that, he complied with officers requests, according to Arizona's Camp Verde Marshal's Office.

Apparently, the couple's fight was only verbal, but police were on guard because there were reportedly weapons in the Maches' vehicle. It's said that the fight did take place in front of the children.

The family is back in Florida now, but Bryan is due back in Arizona court on October 7 for a pretrial conference, where he's expected to answer to domestic abuse and resisting arrest charges.

    Mr. Masche needs to grow up, or at least, take a course in anger management! Jenny & the kids may be better off without him!

    @Great, apparently you could "only view one story" on the website. I see a whole lot more "news" coverage than you speak of.

    Slow day in "News" why didn't you cover Paris Hilton getting off with probation after being busted with cocaine. I mean she's a local enough celebrity, her name is on a big hotel out on the beach her family does own. I'm glad we live in such a good community there aren't real issues to address.... That 0% unemployment rate, and fishermen having more work than ever, along with a tourist industry that is booming, yeah wow I guess that and all the other non issues leave a lot of non sense to cover.
