What started as a day of merriment and holiday cheer turned sour at the home of reality series star, Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo Boo, on Saturday.
The child’s father Sugar Bear, aka Mike Thompson, had a health scare during the family’s Christmas toy drive outside their home in McIntyre, Ga.and an ambulance was called to the scene, according to E! News. While the dad normally plays Santa for the event, plans were changed as paramedics were called in when he reported that the co-star of TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” wasn’t feeling well.
“Usually you’re allowed to sit on Sugar Bear’s lap,” the source tells E! News. “But he was not feeling well…they were worried his blood pressure was getting high.”
Fortunately, Mike was not taken to the hospital. However, fans of the show remember that this wasn’t his first health scare in recent months. Three months ago, he was sent to the hospital following an ATV accident that left him with an infection in his leg.
