Miranda Lambert may think her hunky new boyfriend, Anderson East, is a gift from heaven, but he’s no angel. Before he hooked up with Miranda, Anderson was busted for drug possession and more! Click to see the singer’s mug shot and learn all the gritty details.
Anderson East, 27, may look all sweet and innocent, but behind the pretty face that won the heart of Miranda Lambert, 32, is a dark history of drug use and reckless driving! Oh no! Could Miranda have fallen for a convicted felon without even knowing it?
Actually, no. The story goes like this: Anderson was arrested on March 4, 2007 in Hamilton County, Tennessee, according to RadarOnline. The 19-year-old Anderson was driving without his headlights on, causing the police to pull him over. According to records obtained by Radar, an officer noticed the smell of marijuana coming from Anderson’s vehicle. CLICK HERE TO SEE HIS MUG SHOT.
Anderson, honest to a fault, admitted that he had “smoked a bowl” the previous night, according to Radar. The cops claimed to have found an ounce of pot after conducting a search. No surprise — that landed Anderson behind bars in the county jail (but just for an hour, according to SplashNews.)
After he posted bail, Anderson reportedly faced charges with reckless driving, possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. But, all these misdemeanor charges were dropped after he took par in a “pre-trial diversionary program.” He also had to pay a $250 fine and was put on probation for a year. Wow. It seems there’s more to the good-looking Anderson than what meets the eye.
Anderson has avoided all run-ins with the law since then. He better — he has a hot new romance with Miranda. The two of them kicked off 2016 with an adorable snugglefest. They even shared the same picture on their respective Instagram accounts. It was a cuteness overload!

There’s one person who may wish the cops locked Anderson up before throwing away the key: Gwen Stefani! The girlfriend of Miranda’s ex, Blake Shelton, reportedly thinks this new romance between her and Anderson is a “sad attempt at revenge.” Meanwhile, Blake is just happy that Miranda has found someone and is moving on from their divorce.
