‘Whites of West Virginia’ stars arrested in Martin County, KY


Two people who were the focus of the documentary,

The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia

, have landed themselves behind bars in Martin County, KY.

According to the Martin County Sheriff John Kirk, Sue Bob White and her sister Virginia White walked into the Martin County, KY Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday, July 30, 2015  to pay a bond for their relative, Eric White, who was behind bars in Laurel County, KY.

Sheriff Kirk explained to Sue Bob she could not pay a bond at a county sheriff’s office. The bond for her relative, Eric White, had to be paid at the clerk of courts where he was arrested, which would be Laurel County. 

As Sue Bob walked out the door he sheriff said Sue Bob explained that she was “famous” and she was the “star” of the Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia.

Upon learning this information, the sheriff and his staff searched Sue Bob’s name and found she had a outstanding warrant on shoplifting charges out of Pike County, KY. 

Deputies arrested Sue Bob along with her sister, Virginia White, who also had a warrant out for her arrest for failure to pay after pumping gas.
