It seems as though Mama June can’t seem to keep her name out of the media as of late and, unfortunately, it’s for all the wrong reasons.
On March 13, TMZ reported that the reality star and her boyfriend, Geno Doak, were arrested after the police were called for domestic violence. Once the police were on the scene, it was clear that there was more to the story.
Both Mama June and Geno were tested and both turned out positive for substance abuse. It was also discovered that they were in possession of drug paraphernalia.
Now, nearing one week after the highly-publicized arrest, more details have surfaced and it has proven to be a very serious offense.
According to TMZ, “Cops say Mama June was in possession of crack cocaine and a glass pipe. She also had $1,300 cash in her bra. Geno, who was arrested for domestic violence/harassment, had a needle in his pocket.”
One of the most highly-publicized subjects of the whole fiasco is Mama June’s released mugshot. In it, she wears a very obvious snarl and refuses to make eye contact with the camera. Her appearance is a reflection of her situation, that is for certain.
Mama June’s family, however, has made it a point to try and advocate for her innocence, despite the incriminating evidence that was found on her person. They all strongly believe that she is the victim and that Geno is the one who is to be blamed for it all.
It is unclear as to how her daughter, Honey Boo Boo, is taking the news. One can only imagine the heartache a child faces to see their parent’s images blasted across the internet, especially in a case such as this.
Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers as they navigate this heartbreaking occurrence.
