One of this season’s TheBiggest Loser: Couples contestants was arrested on Tuesday for an alleged domestic violence incident which took place on December 16. Shanon Thomas apparently kicked open the door of her tenant Michael Nolden’s basement apartment and threw a bag of flour in his facebecause he wouldn’t turn down his TV.
Shanon Thomas plead not guilty to the domestic violence charges and told the judge that Michael Nolden had thrown a pan at her, adding “He told me to get a pizza” because she was on TheBiggest Loser. She also said “I’m really a good upstanding person. I can’t believe this is even happening to me.”
She was released on a $2,000 bond and told not to have contact with the victim. If convicted she will face up to 93 days in jail.
This is Shanon Thomas’second time she has been charged with a criminal offence. In 2004, she was arrested and pleaded gulity to a DUI and was placed on 12 months probabtion.
The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens, citing court records, says Shanon Thomas weighs 185 pounds, down from 280 when TheBiggest Loser, started filming in September.
