Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador was arrested for DUI and a hit-and-run after she struck a house with her car in Newport Beach, LA on Saturday night.
TMZ reports the reality personality, 59, drove her car onto a residential property and clipped the house, law enforcement sources revealed.
Beador is then said to have turned back onto the road and continued driving, before parking her car in the middle of the street and getting out with her dog.
Beador acted like she was ‘taking a walk’ when police arrived at the scene after receiving a 911 call. The star was said to have ‘appeared wasted’ and was taken into custody.
Police also seized her car as part of their investigation into the damage to the home.

A representative for Newport Beach Police Department confirmed Beador was booked for hit-and-run and DUI alcohol. She was cited and released without bond.
Shannon’s lawyer Michael Fell told DailyMail.com: ‘Shannon is extremely apologetic and remorseful. We will be awaiting the official information on this case as it becomes available, and Shannon is prepared to accept full responsibility for her actions.’
This comes days after fans saw Gina Kirschenheiter blow up at Beador for continuing to bring up her four-year-old DUI arrest on Wednesday’s episode of The Real Housewives Of Orange County.
The 39-year-old reality star during the season 17 episode titled Pumpkins & Paparazzi also was outraged that Shannon kept saying that she had been close to getting her kids taken away by Child Protective Services (CPS) on the day of her DUI arrest.
Shannon furiously denied saying that CPS was going to take Gina’s children, but video showed otherwise.
‘Shannon says s*** and then she wants to pretend she didn’t do it,’ Gina said in a confessional. ‘And if you can say things that are that f***ing hurtful and not even remember you said it, you need to go f***ing check yourself into rehab. And then when you do and you get to the f***ing I’m sorry step, I’ll be waiting for that apology.’
Shannon was tipped during the pumpkin carving party by Tamra Judge, 55, that Jenn Pedranti, 45, shared with Gina the comments she made about her DUI arrest and CPS going after her kids.
‘Jenn, you said that I said CPS was coming for Gina’s kids?’ Shannon shouted. ‘What are you talking about? I would never say that.’

‘Okay, you’re telling me Jenn just plucked this story out of the air,’ Heather Dubrow, 54, said in a confessional. ‘Yeah, I don’t think so. Good try, Shannon.’
Emily Simpson, 47, said she doesn’t think Jenn was making it up.
‘I would never say that!’ Shannon strongly declared.
‘Tamra was the one explaining to me at the dinner party about Gina’s DUI,’ Jenn said in a confessional. ‘It’s odd to me how you have now conveniently forgot.’
‘It is not true!’ Gina screamed. ‘Nobody gets a DUI and then their kids are taken from them. Let this go!’
‘They were going to arrest you in the morning,’ Shannon said. ‘They were scheduled to be there.’
‘How do you know?’ Gina said. ‘You clock in with the cops?’
Emily said it was just a bench warrant and they wouldn’t show up at her house and arrest her.

It has been a tough year for Beador whose beau John Janssen blindsided her by splitting in November 2022 after nearly four years of dating.
John broke up with Shannon shortly after filming for season 17 of RHOC had wrapped, but she did not go public with their split until January.
Season 17 of RHOC premiered in June and Shannon already has broken the fourth wall twice in attempts to keep aspects of her relationship with John private.
Shannon made her relationship with John official on Instagram in July 2019 after ending her tumultuous marriage to David Beador.
The reality star has daughter Sophie, 21, and twin daughters Stella and Adeline, 19, with ex David.
