This latest arrest put Maci Bookout in a big dilemma. She struggled whether to tell or not their son Bentley about his arrest. She wanted to tell the son so he did not hear from someone else but also she did not want Bentley to have a bad image of his father and wanted a smooth relationship between father and son. 

Maci, however, in the end, decided to have a tough conversation with his son and told him all about the arrest. She talked in an interview about her decision. She said: 

“I think just from the standpoint of him being able to process, comprehend and understand, and get through it in a healthy manner, I think he needs to know what’s going on,” 

She added:

So that I can also, as his parent, reinforce that he does have love around him and support around him. And that’s life; things happen but it’s going to be OK

Only the future will tell, whether her decision was for good or not.
