Honey Boo Boo’s Mother has Prior Record Revealed in Mug Shot
June Shannon, mother of Alana Thompson AKA ‘Honey Boo Boo’, and co-star on the reality show ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’, has a prior criminal record. A mug shot of Shannon has recently surfaced and circulated on the web via The National Enquirer.
The photo was dated to January 3, 2008 when Shannon was arrested in Henry County, Georgia for both contempt of court and theft of child support payments.
Child Protective Services had also paid a surprise visit to Shannon and her husband earlier this Spring at their home in McIntyre Georgia following an incident of filming ‘Honey Boo Boo’ dancing for dollars in a club.
A source told the magazine that authorities who made the visit “found reason to bring the case to court’ but a ‘court-appointed attorney’ for June convinced the judge to ‘throw it [the case] out”.
The source said investigators were called to the home as a result of June and Mr Thompson’s unorthodox, and highly-publicised, parenting methods which include feeding Alana caffeinated drinks as well as roadkill for dinner, reports the Daily Mail.
It’s not known if this disclosure will affect the status of the reality show tracking her celebrity daughter’s unusual upbringing.
The source added: “Honey Boo Boo’s upbringing raised eyebrows with neighbours.”
