June Shannon, better known as Mama June of the reality shows Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Mama June: From Not to Hot, was arrested last Wednesday on drug possession charges in Alabama, a spokesperson for the Macon County District Attorney’s Office tells PEOPLE.

Shannon was arrested on possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia charges after she allegedly had crack cocaine and a crack pipe on her, the spokesperson says, adding that the substance is undergoing testing.

Shannon was arrested with boyfriend Eugene Edward Doak, who is charged with third-degree domestic violence, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. The spokesperson alleges Doak also had suspected crack cocaine and a crack pipe.

A representative for Shannon, 39, did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Shannon, who grew to fame thanks to her reality-star daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, previously has said she wanted to marry Doak. The couple have been together for three years.

But in a trailer released late last month, it appears that Shannon and Doak are having problems.

“I have no sympathy for you,” Doak says to Shannon as he walks away, leaving her crying on her bed.

Shannon has yet to comment publicly on her arrest.
