When was Mama June arrested and why?
Mama June was arrested on March 13, 2019, on drug possession charges including possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia charges in Alabama.
She was arrested with her boyfriend Geno Doak, who was charged with third-degree domestic violence, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The couple each allegedly had crack cocaine and a crack pipe on them.
Mama June and Geno were arrested at an Alabama gas station after someone called the police to report a domestic incident between the two.

In September of 2019, the couple was indicted but did not show up for the hearing.
What happened to her family?
After Mama June’s arrest, her eldest daughter Pumpkin made a statement saying: “Hey guys, as you know, you’ve seen the stuff out in the media and our family is going through a rough patch,”
“But this year alone we have had a lot of happiness.”
A few months later Alana chose to move out of her mothers house and moved in with her sister Pumpkin who now serves as her guardian.
The family staged an intervention for the matriarch on her reality TV show but it didn’t seem to hit home.

At one point Alana gave her mother an ultimatum claiming she wouldn’t move back home until Geno was out of the picture but Mama June and Geno stayed together.
Where is Mama June now?
