Mama June: From Not to Hot star June Shannon faces more legal trouble over her drug-related arrest in Alabama, but it’s not the first time the WEtv reality star posed for a mugshot. Turns out, she was in trouble years ago but for different reasons.
Mama June: From Not to Hot – June Shannon’s Past Run-In With the Law
Back in 2008, Georgia police arrested June Shannon for theft and contempt of court. However, the charges for theft were reportedly tied to child support issues from her first husband – and were dropped the same day. June’s admitted to legal issues back in the day related to her kids and her ex.
However, that wasn’t her only legal matter. We’ve seen criminal records showing Shannon’s conviction for writing bad checks. Plus, child services investigated she and Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson over Alana Thompson (aka Honey Boo Boo). Likely, that was about the “go-go juice” Alana sipped while in pageants, recall Mama June: From Not to Hot updates.
Mama Speaks Out About Her Arrest
June Shannon from Mama June: From Not to Hot came clean to fans about her previous arrest. She talked about the child support drama and the Child Protective Services probe. She said there was a contempt charge in a case with one of her daughters. Plus, she admitted there were theft charges, also immediately dismissed. Also, she opened up about her case with CPS.
Fans may recall Alana liked to drink a mixture of Red Bull and Mountain Dew to gear up for pageants. Clearly, it’s not a healthy choice for anyone, especially a child. But plenty of parents let their kids caffeinate, right? Then, there was an incident with Alana appearing at a concert in a bar – and CPS checked that too. Mama said the judge saw she is a good person and there was no abuse, claims the Mama June: From Not to Hot celeb.
Mama June: From Not to Hot – Mama Continues to Get into Trouble
These days, June faces those looming criminal charges on the Family Crisis series. Sadly, it’s far worse than bad checks and contempt. Fans know she’s now facing a felony charge. But, with the Alabama courts minimizing workload because of quarantine, the case is outstanding still. However, her family worries and sees Geno Doak, her co-arrestee, as a bad influence. And she’s still with him now.
Hopefully, her day in court comes soon and she can move on to a better future. Don’t miss Mama June: From Not to Hot to follow along with June Shannon and her family. Tune in to new episodes of the reality show every Friday night on WEtv.
