Shannon Beador has been arrested for DUI after crashing her car into Newport Beach house.

Shannon Beador, a regular on BravoTV’s Real Housewives of Orange County, has been seen enjoying vodka, lime, and tequila cocktails with ‘Tres Amigas’ Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson.

Beador, 59, is known for her lively lifestyle, as evidenced by her RHOC Season 17 tagline, “In Orange County, I call the shots — and it’s always tequila.”

Though she’s never had an issue with drinking and driving while filming RHOC, around 1 a.m. on Sunday morning, Beador was caught in a hit-and-run.

Why is Shannon Beador arrested?


Beador, known for her amusing appearance on the show, accidentally crashed her car into a home in Newport Beach, CA, attempting to exceed the limits of drunk driving.

As she turned the corner in a Newport Beach neighborhood, Beador lost control of her vehicle and crashed into the side of a house after striking the cement barriers on the property.

After abandoning her car, she was later observed walking her dog in the hopes that no one would notice. She was apprehended by the cops for drinking and driving after they caught up with her.

Beador was released the same day as the accident and charged with two misdemeanors, one including a DUI.

Since crashing her car and fleeing the scene, Beador’s lawyer Mike Fell has spoken on her behalf, as Fell released a statement, saying, “I spent quite a bit of time with Shannon yesterday. She is extremely apologetic and remorseful.”

Fell continued, “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.”

Jeff Lewis, Beador’s friend and reality TV star, provided a comment on her status following the accident.

Lewis continued, “Shannon and I have been friends for a very long time. I was shocked — she called me yesterday and we talked for a while — and I was shocked because I’ve never known Shannon to ever, ever drink and drive.”

Tamra Judge, Beador’s RHOC co-star and longtime friend, denied discussing the incident, stating that Beador only mentioned it as “a rough couple of days.”

Beador has yet to release any information about her accident and DUI charge. However, fans can catch up with RHOC Season 17, as it is currently airing every Wednesday at 8 p.m. on BravoTV.
