 $188M Powerball Winner's Fiancé Jailed Again

This year saw one of the biggest Powerball jackpots to have been won, after a woman from North Carolina scooped the $188 million jackpot. The winner has since been engaged to a man that has been in trouble and incarcerated three times this year. Read the full story here. 

Monday, the 19th of October, would the third time that the Powerball winner’s fiancé’ would have been jailed in less than a year. Lamarr Andre McDow, who is also known by his friends as “Hot Sauce”, was recently charged with the possession of a firearm by a felon. 

Powerball Winner

A spokeswoman from Brunswick’s County Sheriff Office reported that Lamarr turned himself in after being indicted on the charge. His case then moved to the conclusion that he would be processed out of jail a short time after. 

Last November, Lamarr was arrested on heroin charges and while he was behind bars, the Powerball winner, Marie Holmes, was one of the three winners who split a total jackpot amount of $564 million. Marie’s share amounted to $188 million, but she took home $88 million after taxes. 

Prosecutors in Lamarr’s case said that Marie paid him a $3 million bond just a week after she won the Powerball jackpot. Lamarr was then arrested again in July this year after violating the terms of his curfew set by the court when he was released in March. 

Hot Sauce

After this violation, the deputies went to pick Lamarr up at the home he was sharing with Marie at the time, but when they got there they smelled Marijuana and also found a gun that belonged to him. Marie and several other people in the house were cited for possession. 

Shortly after he got arrested, he then was released from jail on a $6 million bond. Marie, at the time of her win, stated that she wanted to use her winnings to open college funds for her four children, and buy a new house. Marie, however, is, unfortunately, heading down the same path as numerous other winners who did not successfully manage their winnings accordingly. 

It really is such a shame that all her money is going to waste. Some people deserve to win, and then others simply don’t. We hope that you use these lost causes as an example and strive to never act in the ways they do. We trust you will do well with your winnings, as so many past winners have also done so. The power is in your hands! 

Best of luck,

The LuckyLottos Team
