LOVE AFTER LOCKUP Puppy’s mug shot photos and criminal history

Love After Lockup Puppy arrests mug shots

Love After Lockup: Life After Lockup star Puppy (real name Michelle) has emerged as quite the fan favorite with her increased screen time alongside her prison bae Amber this season. We got a little curious and decided to peek into Puppy’s background, and our investigation turned up A LOT of arrests!

Online records indicate that the 35-year-old reality star has been in and out of jail and prison in Georgia numerous times over the past 15 years. The first online arrest record I could find is from 2007.

The Georgia Department of Corrections lists the following incarceration dates for Puppy, but I assume these do not include short jail stints:

May 28, 2014 – June 13, 2016
March 1, 2017 – August 20, 2018
September, 2018 – December, 2019

It appears as though Puppy has managed to stay out of legal trouble since her release in December of 2019. Perhaps being on the show and in the spotlight has helped her stay straight? Well, not completely straight, right? 😉

I’m like many Love After Lockup viewers in that I like Puppy, and I sincerely hope that she’s able to leave her troubled past behind. You can find out if she’s successful (with a slight delay) by tuning in to new episodes of Love After Lockup: Life After Lockup airing Friday nights at 9/8c on WE tv!
