MCINTYRE, Ga., Dec. 9 (UPI) -- The dad of reality television star Honey Boo Boo was checked out by paramedics while playing Santa Clause at the family's Georgia home, sources told E! News.
The 40-year-old man known as Sugar Bear said he wasn't feeling well during a Saturday night toy drove at their place in McIntyre, so worried family members called 911.
The tip off that something was amiss came when Sugar declined to allow the little kids to perch on his lap.
"He was not feeling well," the source said. "They were worried his blood pressure was getting high."
Sugar Bear was apparently well enough that he did not require a trip to the emergency room.
