Jeff Lowe continues to take legal lumps ̵
1; the current owner of Joe Exoticthe one-time Tiger King Zoo was behind bars to start its weekend … this after a bust of DUI.
Lowe and his wife, Lauren, both were arrested early Saturday morning in Oklahoma County for driving under the influence … and it looks like Jeff may have been the one behind the wheel because the sheriff’s office also booked him on a changing lane for improper charging.
Since Jeff appears to have been driving, it is unclear why Lauren was also arrested for DUI.
Lowes was taken to jail around 4 a.m. … and they posed for these mugs while they were being processed. At first we weren’t sure it was Jeff without his bandana / hat combination – but yes, that’s fine. Last time we checked, they were still in custody.
Details of the arrest / alleged incident have not yet surfaced – but in any case, this is the latest hit by Jeff and co. they took when it came to Johnny Lowe … at both the state and federal levels.
As you may recall … he had several meetings with law enforcement earlier in May as they were constantly confiscated dozens of his big cats and other animals he had in his zoo … which the federal authorities claim were not properly cared for or in some cases were malnourished, allegedly violating federal guidelines.
So, yeah … the dude had done it lately, and that’s just the latest.
Fans of the former zoo owner may be rubbing their hands in joy as they watch Jeff’s proverb fall from grace at the moment – as some believe he made Joe dirty and helped him get into jail … where JE currently remains as he continues to try and fight for his release.
