AceShowbiz - "1000-Lb. Sisters" star Tammy Slaton faced legal trouble. The reality TV star was arrested and charged with marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession in her home state of Kentucky.
According to court documents, the 37-year-old got slapped with one count for possession of marijuana and two counts for possessing drug paraphernalia. The arrest took place on August 7 after a Sturgis police officer responded to the complaint on August 4, a clerk of Union County Court told In Touch.
Tammy was ordered to appear in court on August 31 for her arraignment, while her pre-trial conference was scheduled for October 5. However, it was unknown if Tammy attended it. Kentucky.gov explains that a pre-trial conference is "held before the trial" and is a potential opportunity to negotiate with the county attorney.
Tammy's arrest came less than a week after her husband Caleb Willingham's funeral. Caleb's tragic death was confirmed by his brother in a Facebook post on June 30. "Today GOD called my big brother home," Caleb's brother wrote at the time. "R.I.P. Caleb Willingham … You will be forever loved and missed. Until we meet again."
Tammy addressed Caleb's passing the following day. "Rip sweet angel. You will forever be missed and loved so much thank you Caleb for showing me real love and happiness [sic]," the TLC personality penned in an Instagram post.
She went on opening up about her feelings after Caleb's death in a TikTok video, in which she said she still loved him even though they split earlier this year. "I'm having stages of grief. Yeah, we were having problems, but I loved that man. I still do," she tearfully shared.
"I miss him like crazy, but I wanted to thank everybody for your comments. I appreciate them, I really do. We're not going to get into details of what happened. I think that, no offense, but that's really personal," she added.
