Powerball winner's boyfriend posts $12M bond

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Lamarr McDow, the 31-year-old boyfriend of Brunswick County's $188 million Powerball winner Marie Holmes, started 2016 by posting a $12 million bond.

Brunswick County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Emily Flax said McDow was released from jail just before 12:45 a.m. Friday after he was bailed out by Loftin Bail Bonding.

McDow was arrested Tuesday for violating a pre-trial release agreement for prior heroin-related charges.

McDow was arrested twice in 2014 after authorities confiscated nearly 2,500 bags of heroin during two separate incidents.

He was also arrested last weekend for allegedly helping to set up an illegal street race in Brunswick County.
