Shannon Beador was arrested for DUI and hit-and-run early Sunday morning after she allegedly clipped a Newport Beach, Calif., house and fled the scene.
TMZ reported Monday that the intoxicated “Real Housewives of Orange County” star hit a home with her car and immediately turned back onto the road.
Sources told the outlet that the 59-year-old reality star drove for a bit before parking her vehicle in the middle of the street and getting out with her dog.
Police were called and found Beador acting like she was walking her pooch, but authorities quickly realized she was inebriated and took her into custody.
A Newport Beach PD rep told TMZ that the Bravolebrity was booked for two misdemeanors — hit-and-run and DUI alcohol.
Her car was also seized as part of the police department’s investigation.
She was cited and released without bond.
Reps for Beador didn’t immediately return Page Six’s requests for comment. Bravo declined to comment.
The past several months have been rough for the Housewife, who still appears to be reeling from her breakup with boyfriend John Janssen after 3-and-a-half years together.

Janssen, however, told us that the group as a whole had to leave because the venue was closing for the night.
Beador and Janssen appeared to let bygones be bygones and reunited for a friendly dinner, though it was unclear if her Instagram snaps were taken the night of the fight or days later.
On a recent episode of “RHOC,” co-star Gina Kirschenheiter suggested Beador needed professional help for her drinking.
“Shannon says s–t, and then she wants to pretend that she didn’t do it, and if you can say things that are that f–king hurtful and not even remember you said it, you need to go f–king check yourself into rehab,” Kirschenheiter emotionally said in a confessional.
Kirschenheiter, 39, was arrested for DUI in 2019. She has since stopped drinking alcohol, a decision she says has changed her life.
