The father of sextuplets, who stars on a cable television reality show “Raising Sextuplets” about raising them, was charged with domestic violence while visiting family in Arizona.
Bryan Masche, 32, yelled at and threatened his wife and another family member.
His wife, Jenny Masche, told police the argument stemmed from marital issues and that her husband wanted to take the children out of town.[pullquote quote="The biggest concern was his frame of mind and the fact that he wanted to take the kids"]
She also said he was upset and yelled profanities in the children’s presence when he became aware of her plans to visit friends in Phoenix for work reasons, according to a complaint.
“The biggest concern was his frame of mind and the fact that he wanted to take the kids,” said Robin Bruno, a spokeswoman for the Camp Verde Marshal’s Office.
Masche was arrested on Sept. 11 and posted a $3,500 bond the following day.
He has pleaded not guilty to three counts of domestic violence involving disorderly conduct and threats, and a single count of resisting arrest, a court official said.
A caller reported that Masche said he was going to “flatten” his father-in-law and was disorderly, Bruno said.
