Raising Sextuplets star Bryan Masche has been arrested on charges a dad of six should never be accused of -- domestic violence. The 32 year-old Masche was at a family's home in Arizona when he lost his temper and began to make verbal threats toward his relatives. When local police arrived on the scene, he tacked on another charge by refusing to cooperate with autorities.

According to People, Bryan Masche now faces domestic violence, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest charges. The children (now three years old) were not around at the time of the incident, but it is unclear whether the threats were against his wife, Jenny, or another family member. In a rather telling interview with People a few years ago, Mashe is quote about his marriage, "We have totally brutal fights. We both have an understanding in our minds that there is no out. So if we are going to be stuck with each other for the next 80 years, we better make it good."

The T.V. couple, who recently relocated from Arizona to Florida, were already attending weekly therapy sessions to work through issues, including Masche's anger management problems -- many of which fans of Raising Sextuplets have seen broadcasted. Unfortunately, the T.V. cameras were not rolling this past weekend to help shed light on the night's events.

Domestic violence is a criminal charge that includes physical and verbal threats against another. The Bryan Masche case is especially interesting because many domestic violence cases involve protective orders, requiring the defendant to stay away from the spouse and children, at least temporarily. Masche was released on a $3,500 bond, and the family and police have been tight-lipped on any other details.
