BRUNSWICK COUNTY, N.C. — The man engaged to the North Carolina woman who won the $188 million lottery jackpot earlier this year was placed back in jail for the third time in less than a year on Monday.
WWAY reported that Lamarr Andre McDow, also known as “Hot Sauce,” was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon.
A spokeswoman for the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office said that McDow turned himself in after being indicted on the charge. He was processed out of the jail a short time later, according to WWAY.
Last November, McDow was arrested on heroin charges. Prosecutors said Marie Holmes, McDow’s fiance, paid his $3 million bond just a week after her lottery win.
In July, McDow was arrested a second time for violating the terms of his curfew after his March release.
When deputies went to pick McDow up at the home that he shares with Holmes, they smelled marijuana and found a gun that belonged to him. Holmes and several other people in the home were cited for possession.
Shortly after his arrest, he was released from jail on a $6 million bond.
