CENTERLINE, Mich. -- A suburban Detroit contestant on the NBC show "The Biggest Loser" was charged with domestic violence Tuesday.
Shanon Thomas, 30, is accused of throwing flour in her tenant's face.
"I'm really a good upstanding person. I can't believe this is even happening to me," Thomas told 37th District Visiting Judge Sherman Faunce.
The Macomb Daily reported Michael Nolden, who lived in Thomas' basement, told police Thomas yelled at him to turn his television down, grabbed a bag of flour and threw some in his face, getting into his eyes.
Nolden called police and when officers showed up they noticed there was flour on the floor and couch, according to police reports.
Thomas told the judge Nolden attempted to throw a pan at her.
A not guilty plea was entered on her behalf.
Thomas was arrested in Royal Oak in 2004 on suspicion of drunken driving and later pleaded guilty to operating while intoxicated.
Thomas is a massage therapist. She and her mother, Helen Phillips of Sterling Heights, are one of 11 couple teams on "The Biggest Loser." The seventh season premiered Tuesday night on WDIV where Thomas and Phillips were sent home.
Thomas could get three months in jail if she is convicted.
