UPDATED: Tamra Judge’s Son Ryan Vieth Arrested In Drunken Domestic Violence Dispute

Ryan Vieth with Fiance Sarah in happier times

Unfortunately, it seems Tamra Judge‘s eldest son Ryan Vieth will never get his act together. Recent police reports reveal that the new father was arrested last month after a drunken domestic dispute with his fiancé Sarah Rodriguez!

On June 28th, while Tamra and Eddie were enjoying a belated honeymoon in Greece, Ryan was getting booked by the Orange County Sheriff Department after a physical altercation with Sarah. The Real Housewives Of Orange County star’s son was arrested on a domestic violence charge and taken into custody.


After their fight turned physical Sarah fled their shared residence and called 911 from a neighbor’s house. Sarah told the operator that she believed her finger was broken as a result of the altercation and reported the perpetrator was a “drunk” shirtless, white 29-year-old male who turned out to be her fiancé Ryan. Sarah has 3 older children from a previous relationship and informed the operator she couldn’t give further details at that moment because her five-year-old daughter was present as she made the call. 


Unfortunately it was imperative that operators hurry to their residence because their five-month-old daughter Ava was still in their house with drunk Ryan! (I assume she was sleeping). Sarah also warned the 911 operator there were “numerous firearms” in the resident. Sarah is a tactical weapons instructor professionally. 

Police arrested Ryan – he was booked on June 28th and released on bail at 2pm later that afternoon. A source told Radar Online Tamra bailed Ryan out of jail on the very day she returned home from Greece. “Tamra is devastated and embarrassed,” reports the source. 

Tamra has not publicly commented on the situation, and it’s not clear whether or not Ryan and Sarah are still together and they both have deleted their social media accounts. The source says that Tamra told friends Ryan and Sarah are currently in counseling “to try to resolve some major issues” before walking down the aisle. Last year the couple had a lavish engagement party planned by famous wedding planner Alison Ulshoffer, which was filmed for RHOC. 

It’s not clear if Sarah pressed charges against Ryan or not – there’s not court date listed on Ryan’s booking info.

Very sad – I had hoped Ryan was finally – finally – pulling it together, but apparently not. Hopefully he is seeking help to regain Sarah’s trust and be there for his daughter. Ryan was arrested in 2011 due to another domestic violence incident with a previous girlfriend. At that time he blamed steroid use. 

Last year Ryan and Sarah, plus Sarah’s three children relocated to Orange County from her hometown of Auburn, CA. Tamra still seems to have a close relationship with Ava, based on Instagram. 

In other, happier, news – tonight RHOC returns. Vicki, still reeling from the sudden death of her mother, turns to a medium. Shannon tries to shed some excess pounds but realizes it’s her emotions that are weighing her down. Meghan struggles to be more than an “hashtag cool stepmom” when she tries to get stepdaughter Hayley to take her seriously. And Tamra and Eddie face struggles related to mixing business with marriage. In an effort to boost everyone’s spirits, Heather invites everyone for a night of bowling… which turns out to actually be fun!

UPDATE:  Tamra took to instagram to give a statement on the situation. 

Thank you for all the positive messages. There are Two sides to every story! What radar onLie didn’t report was: everything was DISMISSED. No CHARGES No violence No injuries. They are still together going through counseling with pastor Mike. They are very hurt that someone would tip off the press and give quotes that are not true. We ask for your prayers  not your judgment. #AvaRyan
