Lottery winner Holly Lahti may have left one ‘bad boy’ in her life before she scooped up her $80 million Mega Millions win, but looks like she’s found another, RadarOnline.com can reveal.
The mom-of-two has been dating Idaho local Jonathan Aune who himself has had several run-ins with the law.
And Lahti’s involvement with Aune could further muddy the claims to her lottery windfall as her estranged husband Joshua Lahti fights to get his share of her fortune.
A source told RadarOnline.com: “Holly and Jonathan did date one another and have known each other for several years.
“At the moment, Holly is out of the country, and I’m not exactly sure of the status of their relationship.
“But they are both very good kids who are fond of one another… Jonathan has helped Holly a lot over the years.”
RadarOnline.com exclusively broke the story that the lottery winner was involved in a bad marriage and that Holly and her husband had a police run-in with police, resulting in charges being filed against the two.
Both were arrested on January 6, 2003 on a battery charge and their mug shots — obtained by RadarOnline.com — show Holly with a deep bruise under her left eye.
Her husband, Joshua, was also cited for violating a no contact order.
In another incident that appears related to their marriage, RadarOnline.com discovered that Joshua was arrested in 2002 on charges of second degree kidnapping, domestic battery and assault with a child present, false imprisonment, battery and a drug paraphernalia charge.
Holly was subpoenaed in that case, public records obtained by RadarOnline.com show. A no contact order was issued.
Public records obtained by RadarOnline.com also show that Joshua was found guilty of DUI last year and sentenced to 90 days in jail, with 85 days suspended. His other arrests include traffic offenses as well as another domestic violence case in 2000.
But Holly seems to like ‘bad boys’ because RadarOnline.com has discovered that her most recent lover Aune also has a record to his name.
In October 2007, Aune was arrested and plead guilty to possession of a controlled substance and was sentenced to a $553 fine and 90 days in jail with credit for 6 days served. The remaining 84 days in jail were suspended.
Aune was arrested again in October 2008 and plead guilty to possession of a controlled substance – marijuana. He was sentenced to a $300 fine and 90 days in jail with credit for 6 days served and placed on two years probation.
In addition, Aune has been charged with many other offenses over the years including driving without a license, speeding and failing to show proof of insurance.
According to his twin Mike’s Myspace page, his brother’s nickname is JFatty and he also lives in Post Falls, Idaho.
