Elizabeth Lyn Vargas’ ex Ryan Geraghty charged after break-in

Elizabeth Lyn Vargas’ ex was arrested and charged with multiple felonies after he barricaded himself inside the “Real Housewives of Orange County” alum’s home this week.

Ryan Geraghty, 33, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, burglary, felon in possession of a firearm and extortion, according to a press release by the Newport Beach Police Department.

His arrest record, seen by Page Six, reveals he will appear in court on Feb. 3. He’s still in custody.

As Page Six previously reported, Vargas, 46, called the police after Geraghty locked himself inside her home after allegedly extorting her for months.

“She called the police [Tuesday], so police start monitoring the house, and he shows up,” an insider told us. “He runs in the house, holds her hostage, has a gun. When [police] realized he pulled a gun out, they raided.”

The Newport Police Department confirmed our source information in the press release, stating, “Once inside the residence, police officers encountered an armed male suspect who was actively threatening the life of the victim. Officers took immediate action and placed the suspect into custody.”

Police also evacuated nearby residences in response to the situation at Vargas’ home but ultimately confirmed there were no “further threats to the community.”

“She’s shaken up and had an extremely traumatic experience,” Vargas’ manager said in a statement.

Following the incident, Vargas’ manager, David Weintraub, told us the reality star was left “shaken up.”

“She’s shaken up and had an extremely traumatic experience,” he said. “Fortunately, the Newport Police Department saved her and she’s doing well.”

The Vargas Vodka founder, who was unhurt, has yet to address the incident on social media.

Vargas had a short run on “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” appearing on the hit Bravo series throughout Season 15. The network declined to renew her contract last June, alongside Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke.
