Although Doak was charged with a domestic violence charge following the fight, the two were apparently acting very “loving” after Mama June was released from jail, Macon County Sheriff Andre Brunson said in a news conference posted by WFSA12 News last year.

“They were acting so loving when they were here,” Brunson said, referring to the jail. “But out there they did have a domestic.”

Although Mama June was released on bond the same night of the arrest, Doak was held for 24 hours due to the domestic charge. According to Brunson, Mama June came back to “take care of” Doak following her release, and the two were very loving and sweet with one another while Doak was still locked up.

“[Shannon] came and took care of [Doak] after she got out,” Brunson said. “Miss Shannon was very nice and funny of course. We didn’t have any problem with either one,” he said.
