Biggest Loser: Couples’ first episode just premiered last night, and one contestant is already in the spotlight. Shanon Thomas, a 29-year old massage therapist from Centerline, MI, was charged with domestic violence in Macomb County on December 16, 2008. She was arrested and arraigned, after being accused of a confrontation with her tenant, Michael Nolden, a man renting a basement room. He says she yelled at him to turn down the sound on his TV (maybe she was trying to watch the live Biggest Loser: Families finale!), broke Christmas light bulbs and then tossed flour at him.
Thomas argues that Nolden through a pan at her and that he suggested she “get a pizza.” A judged entered a not-guilty plea on her behalf. No trial date has been set, and she’s looking at a possibility of up to 93 days in jail.
