Mama June felony drug, reality TV star was taken into custody.
Mama June has been arrested for felony drug possession at a gas station in Alabama following a domestic altercation with her boyfriend, it has been reported.
The reality TV star, real name June Shannon, was taken into custody on Wednesday after an ugly bust-up with her 42-year-old partner Geno Doak.
June, 39, was seen in the back of a sheriff’s pickup truck with bars on the windows and taken to jail following the incident, images obtained by TMZ appear to show.
Doak was arrested for domestic violence/harassment, felony possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia, while Mama June was arrested for felony possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.
Police were called by concerned citizens after witnessing the ‘confrontation’ between the fiery pair, who have been dating for three years.
Felony drug possession in Alabama could spell one to 10 years of jail time for June as well as a fine up to $15,000, experts indicate.
June is best known for her TV shows Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Mama June: From Not To Hot.
Season three of From Not To Hot premieres Friday, just days after her alleged arrest.
June has four children: Anna, 24, Jessica, 22, Lauryn – known as Pumpkin, 19, and Alana – known as Honey Boo Boo, 13.
Geno has an extensive criminal past, having served time for crimes that include burglary, theft and criminal damage to property.
Prior to Geno, June dated Mark McDaniel, who served 10 years in prison for molesting June’s then eight-year-old daughter Anna.
When it was revealed, her controversial show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was canceled.
A March 2003 report, seen by RadarOnline, revealed Anna ‘Chickadee’ Shannon told police in Spalding County, Georgia that she had done the ‘S word’ with McDaniel.
She also told police that her mother’s boyfriend touched her inappropriately, made her touch him inappropriately and forced her to perform a sex act on him. When she told him to stop, he would not.
