Sherry Johnston, Mother of Levi, Busted on Drug Charges

by at . Comments

Sherry Johnston, mother of Bristol Palin boyfriend/fiance/baby-daddy Levi Johnston, was charged with six felony counts of misconduct involving a controlled substance, Alaska's Anchorage Daily News reported early Friday morning.

Johnston was served with a search warrant and arrested shortly thereafter by the Alaska State Police and then charged with second-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance – typically manufacturing or delivering drugs.

Police also charged her with fourth-degree misconduct involving controlled substances, or possession. An undercover narcotics investigation focusing on Sherry Johnston had been going on "a while" prior to the search and her arrest.


Sherry Johnston did not comment to reporters on the subject. She reportedly was released on a $5,000 unsecured bond just after 2 p.m. Thursday.

A rep for Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, mother of Bristol Palin, said Thursday:

"This is not a state government matter. Therefore the governor's communications staff will not be providing comment or scheduling interview opportunities."

Hey, at least the celebrity gossip media heat will be off Levi Johnston for awhile as a result of these drug charges. Way to take one for the team here, Sherry!

Troopers released no other information, including the kind or amount of drugs, because details could jeopardize an ongoing investigation, said a spokeswoman.

Levi Johnston and Bristol, who is nine months pregnant, are expecting their first child any day now. Both are 18. Bristol Palin's due date is tomorrow.
