Powerball winner’s fiance in jail again under $12 M bond

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — The fiance of a Brunswick County Powerball winner is in jail again. This time under a $12 million bond, according to the Brunswick County Detention Center website.

Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Emily Flax said deputies arrested Lamarr McDow, 31, for violating his pre-trial release for previous drug-related charges.

Prosecutors said McDow is the fiance 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. One of his arrests happened last weekend. Police said he helped a friend set up a street race in Brunswick County.
