BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — The fiancé of the woman who won the Powerball jackpot early last year is out of jail after posting a $12 million bond.

Brunswick County Sheriff’s spokesman Emily Flax said Lamarr McDow, 31, was bailed out just before 12:45 a.m. on New Year’s Day. Flax said he was bailed out by Loftin Bail Bonding.

Earlier this week, Flax said deputies arrested Lamarr McDow, 31, for violating his pre-trial release for previous drug-related charges.

Prosecutors said McDow is the fiancé of Marie Holmes, the Shallotte mother who won $188 million in the Powerball drawing last winter.

McDow was arrested other times before and after that.
