What was supposed to be a happy occasion turned scary when Honey Boo Boo's dad Sugar Bear had a health scare during the family's Christmas toy drive last night (Dec. 8).
Paramedics were called to Alana Thompson's home in McIntyre, Ga., after Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson, 40, fell ill, E! News reports. Sugar Bear, who usually dresses up as Santa Claus and greets all the neighborhood kids for the toy drive, allegedly had high blood pressure.
"Usually you're allowed to sit on Sugar Bear's lap," a source at the scene told E! News. "But he was not feeling well ... they were worried his blood pressure was getting high."
"An ambulance was called to the house, but he was not taken off in it," the insider added, "[he] just got checked out by paramedics."
Just three months ago, the "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" star was in the hospital after an Atv accident »
