Following her drug arrest earlier this year, Mama June Shannon has been indicted by a grand jury on one charge of felony drug possession. According to TMZ, Shannon was also indicted by the grand jury on a misdemeanor charge for paraphernalia. She was not present in court for the indictments, but is said to be scheduled to return later this month. The charges stem from an incident in which Alabama police busted Shannon and her boyfriend Geno Doak for having a crack cocaine and a glass pipe.
Following their arrests, Shannon and Doak have continued to date, despite her family pleading with her to leave him and seek help for her substance abuse issues. Shannon is said to have given up all of her parenting responibilities for daughter Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, who is reportedly living with her sister Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon.
On Sept. 1, Thompson posted a selfie on Instagram and in the caption 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 difficult time in her family's life.
