$188 million dollar lottery winner bails boyfriend out with $9 million bail

A prosecutor says a woman who won
the lottery spent $3 million bond that
got her drug suspect boyfriend out of jail earlier
this year. Now that suspect is back behind bars
under a bond that’s twice as high and she bailed
him out again with $6 mil.
Assistant District Attorney Chris Thomas
said that Marie Holmes paid for the bond that set
Lamarr McDow free in March just weeks after she
won a $188 million Powerball jackpot.
It was widely rumored at the time that Holmes,
who Thomas referred to as McDow’s fiancee, had
put up the money, but court records showed only
information on payment of the bond from 3 bail
bondsmen, who do not have to disclose who paid
them to post the bond.
Brunswick County Sheriff’s deputies arrested
McDow, 31, again on Friday afternoon for
allegedly violating the curfew requirements of his
pre-trial release on GPS monitoring, BCSO
spokeswoman Emily Flax said.
She said when deputies got to the home McDow
shares with Holmes on Boverie Street in the
Rutledge neighborhood in Shallotte, there was a
strong odor of marijuana inside, so they got a
search warrant.
During that search around 10 p.m. Flax says
deputies found a gun and charged McDow with
possession of a firearm by a felon. In court today
the state said the gun is registered to Holmes, but
that McDow had handled it, which led to the
McDow, who investigators have said is a validated
gang member who goes by the street name “Hot
Sauce,” is back in jail under more than $6 million
Officers say they also found marijuana in the
home, which led to charges for Holmes and two
other people in the house. Another person was
charged with resisting an officer.
Holmes, 26, walked away with nearly $88 million
out of the $188 million, after taking the lump sum
and paying taxes on her mid-February Powerball
It didn’t take long for Marie’s decision to catch up
with her. Both she and Lamarr were arrested just
days later for allegedly violating the terms of
Lamarr’s release on bail. But money can
apparently solve a lot of problems, as the woman
reportedly bailed her man out again, this time for
$6 million to allow him to be free while awaiting
trial on new charges.
Marie defended herself vehemently on Facebook
against those who criticized her decision to bail
Lamarr out of jail:
“What Y’all need to be worried about is Y’all
money and not how I spend mine this is
benefitting Y’all how? And no he’s no drug
dealer or user but who are Y’all to judge
anybody? I will definitely pray for Y’all
because it’s much need…they talked about
Jesus so I’m not surprised Y’all are talking
about me but be blessed though,” she said
after bailing out her boyfriend.
McDow’s criminal history includes convictions for
assault on a female, assault and several counts of
drug possession dating back to 2000.
