For the last several weeks, we’ve been documenting the many ways in which June Shannon is in trouble with her family.
But these issues between loves ones suddenly seem harmless and unimportant.
Because June Shannon is now in serious trouble with the law.
The long-time reality star — who rose to fame as the mother of a child beauty pageant contestant on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and who now anchors her very own series, Mama June: From Not to Hot — has been indicted on a charge of felony drug possession.
Said charge stems from a March arrest during which time cops in Alabama said Shannon had on her person both crack cocaine and a glass pipe.
She was caught in a gas station parking lot at that time, arguing loudly with terrible boyfriend Geno Doak.
He was also arrested back then for drug charges and domestic violence and both he and Shannon have now also been hit with a misdemeanor charge for paraphernalia.
According to TMZ, Mama June was not at the Alabama courthouse Friday for this indictment.
However, in a strange twist (although perhaps not to strange, given this family’s history), her sister was there with a camera crew, hoping to stage some sort of intervention.
This would have been the second intervention relatives held for June in the past few months, as they previously tried to convince her to leave Doak and focus on her children’s well-being.
Alas, June has seemingly chosen Geno over daughters Alana and Lauryn.
The former is currently residing with the latter and has said she won’t return home until her mother leaves Geno.
On September 1, Alana posted a selfie on Instagram and as a caption she wrote:
“It’s ok not to be ok sometimes it’s hard to follow your heart doesn’t mean you losing everybody bruising.”
Fans of the young star took to the comments and began to share their love and support for her during this challenging time in her family’s life.
More recently, various sources have reported that Shannon is selling everything she can just to make ends meet and won’t even have anywhere to live in the near future.
She plans to just ride around in an RV with Doak and, we presume, at least try not to ger arrested again.
It’s all rather tragic when you remember there is at least one young kid involved here.
As for this latest, significant legal situation?
Shannon is due to be in court for a hearing later this month.
She has not yet commented on the indictment nor has WEtv yet canceled her reality show.
But the network really would be well-served to distance itself from this troubled start as quickly as possible and in as strong terms as it possibly can.
We’re thinking of you, Alana. Try to hang in there, okay?
