Everyone is looking for the secret to weight loss, and for Mama June Shannon, it appears that secret may be crack cocaine.
Mama June and her boyfriend, Geno Doak, were arrested in Alabama after cops were called to deal with a domestic violence incident between the two at a gas station. When police arrived, Mama June was apparently in a “manic” state, and police proceeded to pat down her and Doak. Doak told police not to reach into his pocket because “I don’t want you to get sticked or nothing.” A needle was found in his pocket, and then the attention turned to Mama June.
Police found a needle inside her car, along with a pill bottle full of white powder in the glove compartment. On Mama June herself, they found a glass pipe with white residue inside. The Honey Boo Boo star admitted the substance was crack cocaine, and claimed ownership of the car and everything inside of it.
Doak was arrested for felony possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia, as well as domestic violence. Mama June was arrested for felony possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. Both were released, and when she tried to get her car out of impound from the tow truck driver, it proved to be difficult. Mama June was rambling, couldn’t get her story straight, and didn’t have her license on her.
Then, just days after getting arrested, Mama June and Doak were seen together again at the slot machines at a casino in Alabama. Clearly whatever happened between the two wasn’t bad enough to keep them apart, but Mama June didn’t look good in the footage obtained by TMZ. It’s not clear if she was high at the time, but if she was, I wouldn’t be surprised.
Mama June and Doak have been together for just over three years now, and the From Not To Hot star has made it clear that she wants her beau to propose. This isn’t Doak’s first time being arrested, as he’s got a long history with the law. He’s been booked for burglary, theft, and criminal damage to property, and he’s also served jail time.
It’s not clear if this arrest will affect Mama June’s TV show, which she posted a preview for on the same day as her arrest. Her last boyfriend troubles cost her family their show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, after it was revealed that her then-boyfriend Mark McDaniel had spent 10 years in prison for molesting Mama June’s then eight-year-old daughter Anna.
Neither Doak nor Mama June have commented on the arrest.
Hopefully this drug charge isn’t the start of a slippery slope for Mama June.
