JASPER COUNTY, Miss. (WDAM) - Paige McGee, a star of TLC’s “Seeking Sister Wife”, has had a stalking charge filed against her in Jasper County dropped.

McGee was back in court Wednesday after she and her husband, Bernie, were arrested in Rankin County and charged with stalking in Jasper County in March. A judge set bond at $250, and the McGees were released from jail the same day they were arrested.

The McGees were accused of sending harassing messages either via text or through the internet, according to Jasper County Sheriff Randy Johnson. We’ve confirmed McGee’s mother and brother filed the charges.

McGee said she is now seeking a restraining order against her brother for allegedly harassing her on social media.

We caught up with McGee as she was leaving the courthouse Wednesday. She was visibly upset, explaining Bernie had passed away last week.

Our thoughts are with the McGee family during this difficult time. Rest in peace, Bernie.
