Honey Boo Boo’s mother Mama June arrested for drug possession.

Reality TV star June “Mama June” Shannon, the mother of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, is arrested for possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.

On Wednesday, Shanon involved in a domestic dispute with her partner Geno Doak at an Alabama gas station. Following the dispute, a witness called the police to the scene. Cops then arrested Geno and Shanon.

Geno was arrested for domestic violence and harassment and possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. Meanwhile, Mama June was taken into custody for possessing a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.

Mama June is a reality star from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and its spinoff, Mama June: From Not to Hot.

The show focuses on her life after splitting from partner Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson and her dramatic weight loss.

The reality TV show was canceled after four seasons when it was revealed Shannon’s then-boyfriend Mark McDaniel, served 10 years in prison for molesting her then 8-year-old daughter, Anna Cardwell.

June’s news of arrest comes just two days before the season 3 debut of WE-TV’s Mama June: From Not to Hot Friday evening at 8 p.m.

In Season 2 of the show, June said she wanted to get married, but Doak did not propose.

Last year, Shannon took to Instagram to tell fans she loves Doak and wants to get married soon.

Doak “is the person I’ve [ever thought] about wanting to spend the rest of my life with because he makes not just me but the girls happy too and that’s what matters the most so hopefully one day he will give me the commitment I am looking for and wanting for quite some time or at least put some kind of ring on it.” 

Shannon wrote it “hurt” her to tell Doak he either needed to propose or they were done.

“A girl can always dream I know that he is scared but at this point, I am honestly looking to take that next step in our relationship,”

She continued:

“It really hurt me to actually say either step up or I’m going to have to walk away but I know my girls want the best for me and I know that he is little scared as he was married for many years and I am only his second serious relationship his whole entire life.”

Last year, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Shannon also gushed about Doak and her relationship.

“We’re very committed to one another. And we both love each other. We’re very happy in our relationship. We’re both best friends. And We’re with each other 24/7. And it’s just happy.”

Doak has an extensive criminal record, including burglary, theft and criminal damage to property. He also spent time in jail.

Mama June: From Not to Hot begins its third season at 9 p.m. ET on WE tv.
