'Tiger King's' Jeff Lowe, wife Lauren arrested for DUI
Just last month, Lowe’s wildlife park – formerly owned by Joe Exotic – was raided by feds
Jeff and Lauren Lowe were allegedly driving under the influence on Saturday morning.
The "Tiger King" park owners were busted driving in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma when they were pulled over, as reported by TMZ. Though both of the Lowes were arrested for alleged DUI’s, only Jeff, 56, had the additional charge of allegedly changing lanes improperly. This suggests that Jeff was behind the wheel at the time of the incident.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Lowe were brought into custody around 4am, the report claims. In their booking photos, Jeff can be seen without his signature bandana and baseball cap. He is looking away from the camera in his photo.

Meanwhile, Lauren’s blonde hair is pulled back in a high ponytail as she glares directly into the lens.
This arrest is just the latest in the Lowe’s ongoing legal troubles.
Just last month, Lowe’s wildlife park – formerly owned by Joe Exotic – was raided by feds, as also reported by TMZ. Approximately four dozen agents swarmed the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park and seized 68 animals, including, lions, tigers, jaguars and hybrids, according to Oklahoma’s local news station, ABC 13 KNTV.
The report claims that the park received several citations regarding the welfare of its animal residents, but after three inspections found that the Lowes did nothing to improve the condition of the park for said animals. The citations included failure to provide "adequate or timely" veterinary care, appropriate nutrition, and shelter to protect the animals from any inclement weather.

Jeff and Lauren have also been accused of breeding big cats to sell, but not reporting the births and distribution to the United States government.
