Why is it that the reality of “reality” shows often seems way more interesting than what we see on screen?
Perhaps over the course of the next few seasons we will see the Brown family (or at least some of the Brown family members) making the transition to “city life” and get a more accurate portrayal of how they actually live–which is apparently pretty damned exciting!
At least Matt in Alaska when all this went down, which was apparently a rare thing for the Brown family prior to 2013. (Of course, he wasn’t exactly “in the bush,” which he and his family were supposed to be — according to the show — in August of 2013.) Normally, I would just end this post with the above summary of the incident, but one of the officer’s reports of what happened is so perfect, I feel I should include it in its entirety.
continues to bring in blockbuster ratings, more details are emerging about the family’s not-so-bushy lives off camera.
The latest discovery is that son Matt Brown was arrested for DUI and leaving the scene of an accident in a late night escapade that involved drinking, sex, puking, and an ill-advised Walmart potato chip run.
The incident took place after 4 AM in late August of 2013 in Juneau, Alaska.
According to the arrest report, Matt was drinking at a bar and a girl “was hitting on him real hard and they hooked up for sex.” Matt told an officer that after they had sex, “he then was hungry and she let him borrow her car to get some chips from Walmart.” In the Walmart parking lot, Matt reportedly hit a parked motorcycle, knocking it over and causing damage.
Matt later claims the motorcycle was already laying on its side when he arrived at the store, but a Walmart employee witnessed the entire incident and said otherwise.
(The assistant manager of the Walmart said the incident was also captured by a security camera.) An officer noticed the smell of alcohol on Matt’s breath and administered field sobriety tests, all of which Matt failed.
He was given a breathalizer test three times after registering an “incomplete sample” on his first two tries.
(In between the first and second attempt, Matt said he felt sick and “attempted to throw up in a waste basket.”) The third attempt was successful and Matt registered a .150 breath alcohol level.
