MUG SHOT Honey Boo Boo’s daddy Mike ‘Sugar Bear’ Thompson’s 1998 arrest

Mug shot for the father of Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson

According to a recent report the father of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson had a serious run-in with the law back in 1998.

The National Enquirer is stating that David Michael “Sugar Bear” Thompson was sentenced to 5 years in prison in 1998 for a crime spree. Thompson robbed a series of hunting camps and during this escapade he set fire to at least one of the campers. He was sentenced to this time at the Montgomery Prison in Georgia.

The publication spoke with the father of Alana’s mother, Marvin Shannon, and he didn’t seem to have any problems with Sugar Bear. He said:

“I like the guy she’s with now – as long as he’s got his dip (snuff ), he’s OK.”

Thompson, 40, currently lives with Alana, Mama June and Honey Boo Boo’s sisters and is featured prominently in their show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

    June, get some standards, woman. It’s trashy to have a different father for each child but that seems to be the life y’all live. Nasty people.

  • lola

    i like him hes a nice guy seems a like a good dad to alana and her sisters

  • PS

    Whoever would’ve thought that Sugar Bear was a hardened criminal. lol. If he went to prison for 5 years in ’98, that means he would’ve gotten out in ’03, a year before he met June. Great timing. LOL
