— For the third time in less than a year, the fiance of the Brunswick County Powerball winner is in trouble with the law.

Lamarr Andre McDow spent four months in jail last year on drug charges until his fiancee, Marie Holmes, won $188 million playing Powerball and paid his $3 million bond.

In July, McDow was arrested on a curfew violation and officers found both marijuana and a gun in his possession. He bonded out immediately at the time, but was not indicted on the gun charged until last week.

McDow was booked Tuesday morning on a charge of possession of a firearm by a felon and was processed out of the jail a short time later.

It was not clear who paid his bond this time around.
