MAMA June Shannon’s new boyfriend Justin Stroud has been arrested on a warrant relating to past drug charges, The Sun can exclusively report.
June, 42, and Justin, 34, were in Boca Raton, Florida on Thursday night attending a party when police finally caught up with Justin, who had been evading authorities for months.
As The Sun first reported, the warrant was issued back in October after Justin violated his probation on drug and burglary charges.
Justin appeared to have enjoyed the upscale cocktail party at the Addison with the Mama June: Road to Redemption star, but after the pair departed the venue and went to a gas station across the road, police pulled up behind them.
In photos exclusively obtained by The Sun, Justin is seen being placed into handcuffs, as a distraught June looks on.
One eyewitness who was working nearby told The Sun: "Four cop cars came into the venue and started speaking with the valets."
"Next thing you know, police pull into the gas station and they all swarmed in and arrested him. We saw him get taken away."
According to the booking report, Justin is being held in the county jail and is listed as an “Out of State Fugitive.”

Local police said they believe Justin will remain in the county jail pending an extradition hearing.
Alabama authorities will then determine how they will retrieve him from Florida.
Before Justin was arrested in Florida, June and her new man were traveling all over the United States, despite the warrant.
In photos previously revealed by The Sun, the loved-up couple enjoyed sunny Los Angeles, before moving on to Georgia.
Justin was also in Las Vegas in December, though it is unclear if June was with him for the Sin City trip.
A WANTED MAN
As The Sun exclusively reported last month, June’s boyfriend was hit with the arrest warrant after he admitted to doing party drugs while in rehab, and then failing to appear for his meetings with his Alabama probation officer in October.
Justin skipped out on his probation officer meetings in Alabama just days after he was seen showing off his new tattoo in Atlanta.
The warrant for Justin's arrest alleged he was kicked out of rehab in Alabama for suspected drug abuse in September.
He allegedly admitted to his probation officer that he used “water,” which is otherwise known as party drug GHB.
From the warrant report, the probation office appeared willing to work with him through the alleged slip-up and allowed him to be transferred from Autauga County CCP to Lauderdale County CCP, where he maintained employment and had a place to live.
He reported to Lauderdale probation as required in September, but failed to appear for his probation meetings on October 21, 22 and 25, with the warrant for his arrest being issued on October 26.
Justin was originally arrested for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, as well as burglary at a dwelling in the third degree and theft of property in November of 2019.
He pleaded guilty to the latter two charges.
The mother of four broke up with her longtime boyfriend Geno Doak in 2021, and was briefly linked to TikToker Jordan McCollum before she announced Justin was her "Boo" in October.
The 42-year-old had a tumultuous relationship with her ex Geno as the couple struggled with substance abuse and both got arrested during their three-year romance.
The Sun exclusively revealed that Geno had been sentenced to 16 months in prison on drug charges after his ex narrowly avoided any jail time related to the same 2019 incident.
According to court records, Geno was admitted into the Alabama prison system on July 29, and was given a release date of November 28, 2022.
Geno's sentence will be served through the Community Corrections Program based out of Macon county.
The reality star and her longtime boyfriend were arrested outside an Alabama gas station on charges of possession of crack cocaine on March 15, 2019.
Geno was also hit with a third-degree domestic violence charge, as well as a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Fans of Mama June are expecting her Road to Redemption series to return sometime this spring.
