Mama June has been no stranger to publicity. She’s been a well-known public figure since her and her daughter, known as Honey Boo Boo, were sensationalized on a TV show about child beauty pageants. The two were so unique and eccentric that eventually, they got multiple spin-offs about their lives.
Now, Mama June and her boyfriend, Geno Doak, have reportedly been arrested. On March 13th, Mama June and her boyfriend were reportedly fighting outside of an Alabama gas station. Their heated altercation caught the attention of onlookers, who eventually reached out to authorities.
Police arrived at the scene expecting to calm the two down from the domestic incident. One of the cops began patting down Geno Doak, but he immediately stopped them. Doak told the officer he didn’t want him to “get sticked or nothing,” and he pulled out a needle from his pocket. Officers immediately changed their priorities and began looking for drugs.
Officers looked inside the vehicle and saw another needle in plain sight. It was laying on the driver’s side floorboard. Then, they patted down Mama June. She was carrying a glass pipe that had white drug residue in it. After a thorough search of the vehicle, officers also found a green pill bottle. The bottle also had a white substance in it. When questioned by the officers, Mama June admitted the drug was crack cocaine.
Both suspects were arrested for felony possession of a controlled substance, drug paraphernalia and domestic harassment. Mama June admitted to officers that everything inside the vehicle was hers.
