Thompson has been dating Carswell for two years. In 2021, she opened up about their relationship in an interview with Teen Vogue, calling Carswell her “only friend.”
“To be honest, I do not have many friends at all. Because I feel like folks are so much like, ‘Oh, my God, I’m friends with Honey Boo Boo. I don’t trust nobody really, so I don’t have friends.” Thompson said
The incident took place around 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday when an officer ran the tag of a Dodge Charger in front of a gas station on Highway 24.
After the police system confirmed that the owner of the car had a warrant under his name, the officer attempted to make a traffic stop, but the vehicle sped north.
Per authorities, the officer eventually used a PIT (precision immobilization technique) maneuver, spinning the car and disabling it near Hickman Road.

Thompson was reportedly picked up from Monroe County Jail by her sister and guardian, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon. The Toddlers and Tiaras alum was not charged in the case.
