“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” star, 17-year-old Alana Thompson’s boyfriend, 23-year-old Dralin Carswell has been arrested for driving under the influence, trying to elude police, and also possession of drugs.
Dralin was arrested along with his friend Julian Malik Divon Williams who also had an outstanding warrant and was in the car before Dralin tried to escape capture.
Reports say Dralin Carswell was stopped for a regular traffic stop when the cop realized he had an outstanding warrant and was also driving under the influence.
The 23-year-old sped off with his girlfriend Alana and his friend Julian Malik in the passenger seats and led the police on a 300-mile car chase before they were eventually caught. Dralin and Malik were arrested, but Alana was allowed to go home.

Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson’s boyfriend was arrested for DUI and fleeing police in Georgia on Tuesday, Page Six can confirm.
Deputies detained Dralin Carswell after a three-mile chase while the former “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” star was in the passenger seat of his Dodge Charger, according to the Monroe County Reporter.
Cpl. Jaleel Brown initially ran the tag on Carswell’s vehicle in front of a Shell gas station and found that the owner had outstanding warrants.
But when Brown tried to make a traffic stop, Carswell, 21, allegedly sped off and led a police chase before the officer used a PIT maneuver to disable the Charger.
TMZ reported that authorities found marijuana and took Carswell into custody. Thompson, 17, was not charged, but another passenger, Julian Malik Divon Williams, was also arrested for outstanding warrants.
Police records seen by Page Six show that Carswell was hit with five misdemeanors: fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, driving under the influence of drugs, following a vehicle too closely, failure to maintain lane and speeding. He spent two days in jail on a bond of $25,000
Thompson and Carswell began dating sometime in 2021 but did not go Instagram-official until the end of that September.
The duo sparked engagement rumors when the reality star was photographed wearing a diamond ring last June. However, her rep shut down the speculation, telling Page Six at the time that it was “just a ring.”
In July, Thompson said she and her beau have received criticism for their “age gap” and “because he’s black and I’m white.”
“I don’t care because, like, at the end of the day, my sister approves, his mom approves and we’re happy, so what fans got to say or what haters got to say, I don’t really care,” the former “Toddlers & Tiaras” star told “Entertainment Tonight” at the time.
“She’s not getting married, she’s not having a kid, she’s doing very good in school,” Shannon, 23, said, adding that despite their age difference, Alana and Carswell are “on the same wavelength.”
With such a bright future, it is pathetic that Alana is allowing herself to be destroyed by the wrong crowd in the name of a relationship.
