This is a drama-filled week for reality stars. First “Honey Boo Boo” star Mama June is dating her the molester of her own daughter and now “Sons of Guns” stars have been arrested for child abuse!
Kris Ford, 31, was booked on a count of cruelty to juveniles, while his wife, Stephanie Hayden Ford, 29, faces a count of being a principal to cruelty to juveniles, according to Livingston Parish jail records available online. Both offenses are felonies.
Stephanie’s ex boyfriend, William Scott, who is the father of her 9-year-old son, reported the abuse to police.
Scott claims his son’s stepfather, Kris Ford, struck his son with a belt last month and caused a large bruise “to the juvenile’s right thigh (and) lower buttocks area”.
The child’s mother, former “Sons of Guns” star Stephanie Ford, witnessed “the intentional mistreatment”.
The boy was interviewed and told police that Kris Ford whipped him with a belt while his mother was in the room.
Now most of us from the South have been whipped with a belt before as a child, but this injury must have been bad enough for police to decide to arrest the reality show couple.
Here’s Stephanie’s mugshot photo. We hate to jump to conclusions, but she sure does appear to be sporting the classic “meth face”.
Stephanie and Kris’ arrest comes months after her father, Will Hayden, was arrested for child molestation.
A woman told detectives she saw Hayden naked and kissing a young girl inside his Greenwell Springs Road home.
Will Hayden was arrested a second time when the girl told East Baton Rouge Parish detectives that Hayden raped her on multiple occasions between March 2013 and June 2014, according to affidavits in support of warrants for his arrest.
Several adult women also have said Hayden sexually abused them as children in the 1990s.
The Discovery Channel canceled “Sons of Guns” shortly after Hayden’s arrest.
In September, Stephanie Ford appeared on “Dr. Phil” and said her father also molested her. She previously defended him.
