June Shannon, widely known as “Mama June” from her starring role in reality series including TLC’s “Toddlers and Tiaras,” has been arrested on suspicion of possessing crack cocaine, according to a new TMZ report.
Authorities reportedly responded to a call at a service station in Alabama earlier this week involving an alleged domestic incident between Shannon and her boyfriend, Geno Doak.
As officers investigated at the scene, they allegedly found a white powder Shannon admitted was crack cocaine — along with a pipe and needle.
When they attempted to pat Doak down, he warned them that there was a needle inside a pocket, telling them that he didn’t want the officer “to get sticked or nothing.”
Shannon reportedly told officers that the vehicle and all of its contents belonged to her. They reportedly found a pipe containing apparent drug residue in her pocket, as well as a pill bottle in her glove box containing the white substance.
Police arrested her and records indicate she is expected to face criminal charges including felony possession of a controlled substance and paraphernalia, and domestic violence or harassment.
TMZ released audio from a conversation Shannon reportedly had with a tow-truck driver following the incident this week. During the profanity-packed explanation, she denied she was involved in a fight with Doak prior to the intervention of police.
