Security footage from inside Elizabeth Lyn Vargas’ home shows the chilling moments during which her ex threatened her life.
The former “Real Housewives of Orange County” star faced off against Ryan Geraghty inside her home last Tuesday, and now video obtained by TMZ reveals how he reacted once police officers and a SWAT team arrived.

“I’m taking you out and then everybody else,” Geraghty says. “They can shoot me if they want. I don’t give a f–k anymore. I’ve got nothing to lose.”
Obviously livid that Vargas, 46, had called the authorities, Geraghty, 33, says, “Bring the big boys. How f–king dare you.”

As Page Six previously reported, Geraghty was arrested after he “was actively threatening the life of the victim,” according to the police report.

Geraghty was ultimately 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.
Following the traumatic event, sources close to the former reality star told Page Six that Geraghty had allegedly been extorting her.
“He became obsessive with her and would show up at places and come by her house randomly,” one insider shared. “He asked her for money all the time, so she gave him a little money, but then [he] threatened to start extorting her.”
When the alleged extortion began to worsen, Vargas involved police.
“She called the police yesterday, so police start monitoring the house, and he shows up,” the insider explained last Wednesday. “He runs in the house, holds her hostage, has a gun. When [police] realized he pulled a gun out, they raided.”
Vargas’ manager, David Weintraub, later told us she was “doing well.”
“She’s shaken up and had an extremely traumatic experience,” Weintraub said. “Fortunately, the Newport Police Department saved her and she’s doing well.”
