The arrest of “Mama June” — a reality star who gained fame on TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” — went down just like every other carried out by the Macon County Sheriff’s Office in Alabama, the sheriff said Tuesday.
June Shannon, 39, and her boyfriend, 43-year-old Eugene Doak, were taken into custody on Wednesday at a gas station in Alabama after deputies received a report alleging domestic violence.
Sheriff Andre Brunson said the pair were heading home after a night of gambling. The two were sitting in Shannon’s vehicle when responding officers “found some drug paraphernalia and some other drugs in the car,” Brunson said at a news conference.
The sheriff said that Shannon “was very cordial, she was very nice and funny, of course, and we didn’t have any problem with either one” as she and Doak were taken into custody.
Shannon is best known for her series on TLC, in which she and her family starred in a show surrounding her daughter Alana Thompson, otherwise known as “Honey Boo Boo.” Shannon went on to star in her own show, “Mama June: From Not to Hot,” which followed her weight loss journey.
Despite her reality star fame, Brunson said he “wasn’t too familiar with Mama June and the whole TV series.”
“We tried to be fair to them as we do to everybody else with the confidentiality and all that stuff, but it’s public knowledge and public records and all that stuff at some point,” he told reporters. He said that the sheriff’s office “want to treat them the same and give them the same respect and privacy as we give everybody else.”
Shannon and Doak were both charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, and Doak was charged with domestic violence, according to the sheriff.
He said the couple would be in court soon for their initial appearance.
I don’t even need to read this article. This trailer park redneck that was born behind a Waffle House, probably in the back cab of an 18-wheeler has definitely exploited her 15 minutes of fame. How surprising is it that she’s with a guy that looks like Charles Manson’s cousin, and there just happens to be crack cocaine in the car while they’re at the gas station. I mean, the story has already bored me.
Wake me up when Honey Boo-Boo starts turning tricks in elementary school. I mean, let’s be real, people, do you honestly think Mama June was on her way to Harvard? Or even community college! I guarantee this lady will smoke up every penny she ever made and most likely her kid will smoke all of the crack cocaine that was packed in her lunchbox that was supposed to last all week in the first two days of school. Remember, the entertainment world has changed. I believe for the better.
Because, before reality TV, if you want to call it that, you needed a few things to be on TV:
- An agent
- Good looking or funny
- Fully clothed
- All your teeth
- Speak fluent English
- Not be intoxicated
These were the old rules for success in TV land. Today, you can be on reality TV without an agent, being ugly and not funny, completely naked, missing teeth, unable to speak any language, and it actually helps if you are intoxicated. In fact, I think they pay you more if you’re drunk.
So there’s your answer.I guess the only issue here is Mama June did make it off the backs of her daughter, Honey Boo-Boo, who is still a kid, with a mom who smokes crack, hanging out with guys who look like Charles Manson’s cousin.
I don’t even know if Charles Manson has a cousin, but if he did, he probably looks like this guy. Now here’s what’s going to happen: They’re going to get bailed out in one day, then they’re going to go home and smoke crack or crystal meth for the next week straight. Then after that, probably get into a fight, the cops will come to the house and the entire cycle will repeat itself over and over again until she’s completely broke and her body cannot handle and more venereal diseases, of which she will most likely get after hanging out with the clientele that she services.
I will keep you updated on any Mama June and Honey Boo-Boo news. As the story fascinates me. And I hope it does you too.
