Meanwhile, Sugar Bear's friend, Tony Lindsay, who appeared on the first season of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” told MailOnline.com that Shuggie is quite upset, saying, “Mike is all over the place and is distraught that his daughter has had contact with a sex offender.”
He continued, “He wants her out of that environment and knows the only way to do that is to get custody.”
Lindsay said a custody battle could be tough for Sugar Bear because he is now destitute and borrowing money from friends.
While reports of June and McDaniels' relationship are troubling, the Dekalb County Sheriff's Dept. told TMZ that legally speaking, the supposed couple has done nothing wrong, and that McDaniels is not prohibited from hanging around June or her minor children; Alana, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, 14, and Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon, 15.
McDaniels served 10 years for molesting June's eldest daughter, Anna Caldwell. RadarOnline.com has the horrifying police report from the case. See it here.
