1000-Lb. Sisters: Finding Michael Halterman
1000-Lb. Sisters spoilers, news, and updates reveal that, according to TV Season and Spoilers, Michael Halterman first appeared on the TLC series in January 2020. Before that, nobody, outside of those in his own hometown, knew who he was.
Tammy and Amy Slaton weren’t really well known at the time either, aside from a following they’d picked up from their YouTube channel. None of the cast of 1000-Lb. Sisters were well known (via TV Shows Ace).
What We Know About Michael Halterman
Michael Halterman is a 40-year-old man and, as such, has lived a relatively full life ahead of appearing on 1000-Lb. Sisters. And, as it turns out, that full life included a criminal element. A mug shot and public records revealed by Soap Dirt show that Halterman was arrested in Henderson, Kentucky back in 2015, five years ahead of appearing on 1000-Lb. Sisters. The records reveal that the TLC personality was subsequently charged with “assault, 4th degree (domestic violence) minor injury.”
The records do not give any additional details about the domestic violence situation and how it came to be. Of course, numerous Reddit threads make hypotheses on the matter. The rumor is that the charge involved Halterman striking his former wife in the face. There have also reportedly been accusations floating around Reddit that Michael once aggressively laid his hands on his own grandmother.
Unsubstantiated Rumors About Michael Halterman
Those 1000-Lb. Sisters fans who claim Michael Halterman once assaulted his own grandmother are insisting that there were news stories backing up the claims. There were, however, no links to these news stories provided and those making the assertion were unable to produce an article corroborating their story.
Those same fans assert that there was, at one time, a good deal of well-documented backstory on Halterman along with the rest of the cast, available on Reddit. However, these so-called founts of information appear to have been washed away and so, at this point, it’s strictly speculation.
Have 1000-Lb. Sisters’ Fans Had Enough of Michael Halterman?
At present, what we know as 100 percent fact is that Michael was arrested in 2015 on domestic violence charges as a mugshot, and arrest details confirm the news. Also worth noting, lately, it seems 1000-Lb. Sisters’ fans don’t care much about Michael Halterman.
Fans were enraged as they witnessed Halterman leave Amy Slaton to care for her kids on her own while he enjoyed his meal. And recent reports have surfaced that Michael and Amy are no longer together. In fact, the Daily Mail reports that Amy has left Michael, taking her kids and moving in with her sister Tammy Slaton.
