Women like Marie Holmes are not a dime a dozen. The lotto winner who struck it big winning an $188 million jackpot, keeping $88 million after taxes, has stuck with her boyfriend through several bailouts now. The couple made headlines over the summer after Holmes posted a total $9 million in bail money for her beau affectionately known as Hot Sauce. We catch up with the couple once again after Holmes has posted the biggest bail bond to date: $12 million.
Hot Sauce, real name Lamar McDow, found himself in trouble with the law again after being accused of arranging a street race. He was arrested Tuesday for "violating the terms of his pre-trial release on earlier charges" the New York Daily News writes citing WECT-TV. According to WECT-TV sheriff's office officials reported those terms involved McDow wearing an ankle bracelet that limited him to only going to his house, work, church on Sundays, to see the doctor, and to court. The GPS tracker showed he was elsewhere and so he was arrested.
Holmes, who has vehemently said McDow is not a "drug dealer" bailed him out for a third time in October the New York Daily News notes. WECT reported local attorneys as saying bail bond amounts increase when pre-trial terms are broken.
Just how much money is Holmes believed to have lost? WECT-TV estimates it to be $630,000. But Holmes isn't worried and you shouldn't be either. After her business became national news during the summer Holmes wrote on Facebook: "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."
