Nearly six months after Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton divorced, she’s found new love with fellow musician Anderson East. But could she be headed for yet another heartbreak? RadarOnline.com has learned her new boyfriend has a past run-in with the law.
East, born Michael Cameron Anderson, was arrested on March 4, 2007, in Hamilton County, Tennessee, after he was caught driving without his headlights on.
Cops noticed the smell of marijuana, according to Sheriffs records, and Lambert’s new man admitted he had “smoked a bowl” the previous night. Cops also claimed to have found an ounce of pot in the car.
From there, East was charged with reckless driving, possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia, according to court documents.
He was sentenced to a nearly year-long probation for the controlled substance charge, and was fined $250.
When his probation requirements were completed, the charges were dismissed.
Lambert, 32, confirmed her relationship with the 28-year-old Nashville R&B singer over the weekend, when she posted this adorable couple’s snap:
East, an Athens, Georgia native got his start as a session musician and engineer in Nashville.
Meanwhile, Shelton, 36, is still dating his The Voice costar Gwen Stefani.
A rep for East declined to comment.
