BOLIVIA, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina Powerball winner’s boyfriend is out of jail again after posting a $12 million bond.

WWAY reports (bit.ly/1TxRXob) 31-year-old Lamarr McDow was bailed out early Friday after someone paid a bail bonding company to post his bond.

Brunswick County Sheriff’s spokesman Emily Flax said deputies arrested McDow for violating conditions of his pre-trial release on previous drug-related charges.

Prosecutors said McDow is the fiancé of Marie Holmes, the Shallotte mother who won a Powerball drawing in February and took a lump-sum payment option of about $88 million after taxes. McDow has faced criminal charges before and after Holmes hit the jackpot.

Prosecutors say Holmes raised McDow’s $3 million bond to get him out of jail a week after her lottery win.
