“Big Brother” winner Mike “Boogie” Malin is in legal hot water … a California judge issued a warrant after Mike failed to show up to a court date, and now his probation’s revoked.
Sources with knowledge tell TMZ … Mike was MIA from a Wednesday court hearing related to his felony stalking case… so the judge issued a bench warrant, set Mike’s bail at $20k and revoked his probation.
It sounds like Mike blew his second chance here … we’re told he was due in court two weeks ago for a “proof of live-in program” hearing but he didn’t show up then either, but his public defender took the blame and the judge moved the court date to Wednesday … but Mike was a no-show again.
We’re told Malin, who won season 7 of the reality series, had a new public defender Wednesday, who told the court she emailed Mike and he was aware he was supposed to show up … but when the judge told her to call Mike, he didn’t pick up the phone.
According to our sources, Mike’s probation officer said Malin told him Tuesday he would be in court Wednesday … but after an hour of waiting around for him at the courthouse, the judge called the case and issued the bench warrant.
TMZ broke the story … Mike pled no contest to felony stalking last year in a case involving his former ‘BB’ buddy Dr. Will Kirby, and Malin was sentenced to 2 years probation and ordered to pay Will more than $44k.
We’re told Mike’s latest public defender told the judge his client doesn’t have the money to pay the restitution.
We reached out to Mike … so far no word back.
