UPDATE: Bryan and Jenny Masche have reportedly separated after six years of marriage. The split came just one week after Bryan’s Sept. 11th arrest in Arizona for domestic violence.

According to Radar, Jennifer Masche filed a petition for legal separation on Friday, Sept. 17th in Yavapi County Superior Court.

The Destin, Florida family appears on the WE tv reality show ‘Raising Sextuplets,’ featuring the couple’s three-year-old sextuplets, three boys and three girls.

Someone’s summer vacation sure went bust.

Reality TV dad Bryan Masche, the father ‘Raising Sextuplets‘ on the WE tv reality show, was arrested Saturday in Arizona after a domestic disturbance over the family’s vacation plans.

A call to 911 was made after Masche allegedly began yelling, using profanities, and threatening his family.

New details reveal that an argument between Masche and wife Jenny erupted Saturday afternoon around 2 p.m.–in front of their kids–and quickly escalated. He was reportedly “aggressive” but did not physically harm anyone.

The Florida couple had disagreed over where to take their six children (Savannah, Bailey, Grant, Cole, Molli and Blake) on vacation. Dad wanted to go to Lake Havasu, somewhere closer to home. Mom wanted to drive the gang to Phoenix to visit relatives. Dad ended up spending a night in jail in Camp Verde, Arizona. I’m not sure who won.

Police on the scene threatened to Taser the “belligerent” Bryan after he refused to be handcuffed, saying his rights were being violated. “Bryan locked and held his arms in front of his body in a manner to prevent them from behind secured,” according to the police report. After the Taser threat, he quickly complied.

Masche, 32, was charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and threatening domestic violence. He was taken into custody at the Yavapi County Detention Center and released on $3,500 bond, says People.

The reality TV dad has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
