During a press conference on March 19, Macon County Sheriff Andre Brunson revealed new details of ‘Mama June’ Shannon and Geno Doak’s arrests.

As Dearly previously reported, the stars of “Mama June: Hot or Not” were arrested on March 13 following an alleged “domestic incident” between June and Geno in the parking lot of an Alabama gas station.

They had been gambling before their arrests.

According to Fox News, inside June’s vehicle, officers found “some drug paraphernalia and some other drugs.”

They were arrested without incident. Brunson, who wasn’t familiar with the couple’s reality television show, said:

“[June] was very cordial, she was very nice and funny, of course, and we didn’t have any problem with either one.”

Brunson said they treated June and Geno like anyone else.

He continued at the press conference:

“We tried to be fair to them as we do to everybody else with the confidentiality and all that stuff, but it’s public knowledge and public records and all that stuff at some point.”

Brunson added that the department wants to “treat them the same and give them the same respect and privacy as we give everybody else.”

TMZ reported that June claimed ownership of the white substance that was found in a green pill bottle and that she also reportedly had a glass pipe on her person.

Both June and Geno were later charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Additionally, Geno was also charged with domestic violence.

Brunson said the couple is expected to appear in court soon.

Mama June has yet to make a statement regarding her arrest. However, she has been active on social media talking about the third season of “Mama June: Hot or Not” on WEtv, which people are now calling to have canceled:

Take her show off TV. She is definitely not a role model as well as Honey Boo Boo is not for young girls.

They going to continue to film her show?

NOT a role model….TLC drop her show!!

Are they going to drop the show? They should!

Why don’t they stop filming her

It remains unclear how this arrested will affect her custody of her youngest daughter, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson.

    I feel sorry for Mama June! When her family first appeared on television a lot of people were laughing at them or making disgusting comments about them. It made me wonder why this family was being televised. High TV ratings bring in the money, but I felt it was at their expense of which they didn’t understand the full impact of what was happening or would happen.
    I hope June cleans her act up seriously for herself and her daughters. She needs to be a good role model for her daughters especially the youngest one. I hope she chooses men in the future who are decent and not into substance abuse.

    I love mama June from not to hot. I sure hope it’s not cancelled. If people don’t want to watch it there welcomed to watch something else. I love the show and look forward to watching season 3 and hopefully a lot of other seasons to come.
