‘Pioneer Woman’ Ree Drummond’s Teen Daughter Was Reportedly Arrested in Mid-April
Paige Drummond, 19, made headlines after being arrested in April for underage drinking with facts about the case only coming into light in the recent days.
Ree Drummond's daughter, Paige, got in trouble with the law for public intoxication and possession of alcohol by an underage person. The 19-year-old was taken to a jail in Oklahoma where, according to court documents, she “did appear in a drunken condition.”
The “Pioneer Woman’s” daughter had an open can of beer which she “did lawfully possess and consume a non-intoxicating beverage, containing more than one-half of one percent of alcohol measured by weight, in a public place,” read the legal document.
The papers revealed that the felony is punishable with up to 30 days imprisonment or a fine up to $100, or even both. However, Paige, who paid over $400 in court fees asked for the records to be omitted, which the district attorney approved in May.
In another post, Drummond shared her heartache over Paige’s journey to college after being homeschooled for a long time.
FANS DEFEND PAIGE
Fans of the TV personality found it difficult to believe that their idol, with a clean image, had a daughter who got caught up with the law. On her Instagram account, a fan commented:
“NOT PAAAAAIGE. How could this happen? Beer is the devil’s work. Hollywood destroys families!”
Another fan sympathized with the 19-year-old for being in the public eye and having everyone scrutinize her every move. While Paige got support from her mother’s fans, there were also some who criticized the girl for what she has done.
Paige has three other siblings: Alex, 21, Bryce, 16 and Todd, 15. Drummond often shares photos of her children, including one of her eldest who takes after her mother’s beauty. A few months back, the mother-of-four shared a photo of her daughter in a white lace dress.
In another post, Drummond shared her heartache over Paige’s journey to college after being homeschooled for a long time. She wrote:
“I’ve done it once before and thought maybe this time would be a little easier. I think it’s a little harder. But through all the tears, I see this clearly: What a joy it is to usher her into the next stage of her life.”
