MUG SHOT David Dunn, father of Alana Thompson’s older sister Anna “Chickadee” Shannon

Father of Anna "Chickadee" Shannon David Dunn mug shot

David Dunn is the father of Anna “Chickadee” Shannon, the older sister of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, and one of the stars of the breakout TLC hit Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

We’ve already profiled the criminal histories of Mama June, Alana’s dad, Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon’s dad and now we have Mr. Dunn. So what did Dunn do that landed him in jail?

The National Enquirer is reporting that the 34-year-old was sentenced to prison back in 1995 for stealing a hand gun. In 1998 he got arrested again for stealing cartons of cigarettes.

Dunn, who recently became a grandfather after Anna gave birth, didn’t mind doing a little sharing about the time he spent with Mama June Shannon and his desire to have a relationship with his daughter:

“She [June] took my vir­ginity and I took hers.” He added, “Anna looks just like me. They want­ed me to sign away my rights to Anna, but I refused. I don’t know who my own daddy is, and I always want Anna to know who her father is. But June won’t let me see her.”

Dunn, who goes by “Bart Simpson” and “Shorty,” is it just me or does everyone involved seem to have a handle, claims he didn’t even know he was a daddy until he got out of a prison work detail and was sent to a child support hearing. And that occurred 4 years after Anna had been born.

The only sister left unaccounted for on the daddy front is Lauryn. Man, I don’t even wanna know!

  • Wow…a merry band of misfits in that family. How many mugshots are we up to now?

    I’m sure if he fought enough for his daughter in court he would be allowed visitation rights if the judge though he was a fit parent. Stupid deadbeats and their excuses. Seems like Alana’s dad is the only one of the kids’ dads whose actually there.

      Not all guys/gals who are screwed by the courts from seeing their kids are as awful as you think. They often cannot afford a lawyer to defend themselves against what the “parents” claim & do all they can to see the kids, even if it’s just 1 hour every 2 weeks in a monitored location. While all of the people involved in this “family” seem worse than the lowest of white trash, I do give the guy some credit in not signing away his rights.

    Here’s my advice..when half your family has a damn book of criminal history, I wouldn’t suggest getting your own tv show only for the whole world to find out all your dirty laundry! What a messed up white trash, ugly fat family..

    I wonder what he thinks of June now? lol I bet she didn’t look like she does now when he knew her lol

  • tab

    what i don’t understand in all of this is, who would want to sleep with june? she’s a rude, disgusting human being without any manners or respect.
    such a nasty family. i have lost all respect for TLC airing this show and giving this family money.

      Alcohol & drugs make even June, a.k.a. Jabba the Hutt, look attractive enough to some. Maybe the *ahem* event took place with a ball gag in her mouth long enough for these guys to finish the, uh, deed.

  • He looks like a skinhead.

  • Tiffany L. Goad

    shes 17 she can go see him if she wanted to
