Down goes Sugar Bear! Down goes Sugar Bear!
The patriarch of the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo clan, Mike Thompson -- aka "Sugar Bear" -- was hospitalized recently following an ATV accident.
Sugar Bear had to have surgery over a small infection that was caused by a "mud-boggin'" crash. One of the Thompson's favorite things is riding on four-wheelers and driving them through the mud - mud-boggin'.
