Sources close to LaFont say he and his girlfriend had gotten into some kind of dispute. The specific details surrounding the arrest are not clear, however.

Joe is currently being held on $1,500 bond, TMZ reports.

Both Joe and his stepson Tommy Chauvin narrowly escaped death in a big five-car pile-up near the Arkansas-Louisiana state line back in April.

His Swamp People co-star Mitchell Guist died in May.
