Mama June & Doak Were Arrested After Police Found Drug Paraphernalia in June’s Vehicle
Mama June and Doak were both arrested on March 13, 2019, after police were called to a gas station in Alabama regarding a domestic incident. When officers searched June’s car, they found a plethora of drug paraphernalia including a pill bottle filled with crack cocaine, and arrested both of the reality stars.
June and Doak pleaded “not guilty” to the charges in October, 2019, according to People. The State of Alabama had a grand jury review the evidence in Mama June’s case, according to The Blast, which published the indictment. They found that Mama June “did unlawfully possess a controlled substance-to-wit: Cocaine, in violation of” the law and “did unlawfully possess with intent to use in inject, ingest, inhale or otherwise introduce into the human body, drug paraphernalia, to-wit: a pipe,” the indictment states, according to The Blast.
Doak received the same two charges. The indictment also stated that Doak “did unlawfully possess with intent to use to inject, ingest, inhale or otherwise introduce into the human body, drug paraphernalia, to-wit: a pipe.” According to The Blast, the drug possession charge is a felony, while the paraphernalia charge is a misdemeanor.
June Wants to ‘Disappear’ & Is Not on Speaking Terms With Her Children, as of January, 2020
Shortly before Mama June’s 2019 arrest, her children, family and friends staged an intervention for the reality star. The intervention did not go well and ended with Mama June storming out of the house and falling dramatically in the middle of the street. However, after three hours of her family working hard to convince her that she needed help, she finally checked herself into rehab (although that lasted all of 12 hours).
“I hate my f–king self, I want to kill the person I’ve become,” she says in the clip above. The reality star also uploaded a selfie on Instagram back in January, where she noted that she and her children were not on speaking terms, and that she “just wants to disappear” sometimes.
The original post was filled with spelling and grammatical errors, so Heavy re-typed it in order to make it more legible for readers. The post reads, “Even though me and the kids aren’t still seeing each other and it’s been very hard on all of us but I hope one day that will change as I want them to know I miss and love them very much.”
