Mama June’s arrest

Recently, Mama June Shannon and her boyfriend Geno Doak were arrested. At first, a lot of details were not revealed. Then it came out that she was found with crack cocaine. She was also caught with a needle and a pipe. The needle was lying on the floorboard of the car. Because of this, Mike realizes he might have a chance.

This is, of course, something you wouldn’t want a 13-year-old child around at all. It sounds like Sugar Bear is seeing this as his time to move in. Alana is the youngest child and the only one that is Mike’s biological daughter.

Sugar Bear’s plans

If you watch Mama June: From Not to Hot, then you know that Sugar Bear wants more time with his daughter. A source explained that he thinks this is a good time to fight for custody. Because of this arrest, he just might win. Here is what the source had to say about it all.

“Alana’s father, Mike, aka Sugar Bear, is furious at Mama June for getting into trouble yet again and arrested. He loves and misses Alana and wants to use her run-in with the law as an opportunity to take full custody away from June. Sugar Bear fears that June may be messing with drugs and that her new boyfriend is untrustworthy. Mike feels this is all unhealthy for Alana.”

Mike and his new wife Jennifer have made it clear they don’t care what Alana eats and they want her to just be happy. Things would probably be a lot different if she lived at their home. For now, everyone will have to wait and see if Sugar Bear actually takes her to court or not.

  1. Dear God let’s hope she doesn’t end up there. Her sister Pumpkinseems to be the most stable and consistent adult in her life and seems to have only her best interest at heart. She has said that she does not want her daughter involved in pageants and growing up in the public eye because she could see the pitfalls to this even prior to her mother being arrested. I think that’s exactly what this poor child needs… Some time away from cameras and prying eyes to heal and just be a kid in a stable home where the children are the first priority and not the money or fame that comes with them
