Shannon Beador walks dog Archie after animal control probe, DUI arrest

Shannon Beador is attempting to return to her normal routine following her drunken hit-and-run two weeks ago.

In photos obtained by Page Six, the “Real Housewives of Orange County” star was spotted looking pensive as she walked her dog, Archie, in Laguna Beach, Calif., Friday.

Beador tried to fly under the radar in a gray University of Southern California sweater and black yoga pants, accessorized with sunglasses and blue flats.

Despite covering up in the sweatshirt, a white cast appeared to peak beneath Beador’s left sleeve suggesting the Bravo star may have broken or fractured a bone in her arm due to the impact of her recent crash.

On Sept. 20, Beador, 59, was photographed wearing a sling — along with bruising on her face — but it is still unclear what type of injuries she may have sustained.

Beador’s pal Jeff Lewis shared on the Sept. 18 episode of “Jeff Lewis Live” that his friend was in fact “injured” but was “recovering.” He did not go into any further detail.

As Page Six previously reported, Beador was taken in by police at 11:45 p.m. local time on Sept. 16 after driving her vehicle into the garden of a neighboring home and later driving off.

According to the police report, officers found the Bravolebrity nearby pretending to walk her dog after clipping the building and parking her vehicle.

Beador faces a misdemeanor hit-and-run charge and a DUI alcohol charge. She was released the morning following her accident after paying a $2,500 bail.

The mother of three is also under investigation by the Newport Beach Police Department’s animal control unit due to driving under the influence with her pooch in the vehicle.

Last week, a NBPD public information officer told Page Six exclusively that they were “looking into” the incident and what options they could pursue regarding the alleged endangerment of Archie.

The reality star was arrested on Sept. 16 after hitting her car into the side of a building and then driving off.

“We don’t have animal endangering laws like you would with children but we do have animal cruelty laws, so he’s going to look into that a little bit further,” Sgt. Steve Oberon told us at the time.

Oberon also told us that, upon her arrest, Beador requested that Archie be “dropped off at someone’s house to take care of it while she was dealing with her situation.”

Given that the dog didn’t have any visible signs of injury, Oberon shared that the officers obliged.

Although Archie was taken to another home when Beador was arrested, the reality star’s pooch has since returned home.

It is unclear who looked after Archie after Beador was taken into custody, but a source suggests that the good boy was taken to Beador’s ex John Janssen’s house that night.

Can’t get enough ‘Real Housewives?’

Janssen has been seen by Beador’s side amid her legal troubles.

Photos taken by Page Six show debris and scrapes on the side of the house where the crash occurred.

The reality star is reportedly looking into alcohol treatment centers following her arrest.

According to Beador’s lawyer, Mike Fell, Beador is “extremely apologetic and remorseful.”

He added, “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.”

Former Tennessee Sheriff Shoots Door-To-Door Salesman, Says She Thought He Was A Gang Hired Hitman

Former Shelby County Sheriff Monica Johnson-Markwork, 51, shot a door to door salesman on Wednesday. She mistakenly thought it was a gang hitman that was there to kill her.

She had been in contact with her imprisoned son who is serving a 20 year sentence for the rape of a child and thought this supposed “hit man” was targeting the two of them.

Johnson-Markwork saw a man approach on her security camera and fired a shot thinking he had a gun. It turned out he was a pest control salesman and was carrying an Ipad. He was hit in the chest and was transported to the hospital in critical condition, but was stable.

New York Post Reported:

A former Tennessee sheriff is claiming she shot a door-to-door salesman because she thought he was a gang-ordered hitman.

Monica Johnson-Markwork, 51, of Cordova, told police that she had been in contact with her incarcerated son — who is serving a 20-year sentence for raping a child — and believed that a local gang put a hit out on the two of them, ABC Memphis reported.

Johnson was at home with her father in the Memphis suburb just before noon on Wednesday, when she saw on security cameras a man approaching her front door, according to an affidavit.

She thought he was holding a gun and told detectives that she yelled, “They’re here,” before running upstairs to hide in the attic.

Detectives said the man was actually a pest control salesman carrying an iPad.

He was shot in the chest and taken to the hospital in critical but stable condition.

She was charged with felony aggravated assault and was released from jail on a $4,000 bond. Her court date is set for October 13th.

Johnson was a former Captain with the Shelby County Sheriff Department. She was fired and then indicted on charges of misconduct in 2016 regarding her son’s rape case. The charges included misconduct and coercing a witness.

Study Show Government Bans on Vapes Are Sending Smokers Back to Their Old Habits

A new study further highlights the fact that when government tries to solve a problem, it only makes it worse. As Americans continue grappling with the health effects of smoking, alternative nicotine delivery systems like vapes and e-cigarettes have been touted as a successful way to help people stop smoking tobacco.


However, many states and cities have passed laws and ordinances to restrict the sale of flavored electronic nicotine delivery systems. Proponents of these measures argue that companies selling these products are trying to appeal to younger demographics, specifically, underaged children. However, a study conducted by the Department of Health Policy & Management at the Yale School of Public Health shows that these government restrictions are doing far more harm than good.

Over 375 US localities and 7 states have adopted permanent restrictions on sales of flavored electronic nicotine delivery systems (“ENDS”). These policies’ effects on combustible cigarette use (“smoking”), a more lethal habit, remain unclear.

Matching new flavor policy data to retail sales data, we find a tradeoff of 15 additional cigarettes for every 1 less 0.7 mL ENDS pod sold due to ENDS flavor restrictions. Further, cigarette sales increase even among brands disproportionately used by underage youth. Thus, any public health benefits of reducing ENDS use via flavor restrictions may be offset by public health costs from increased cigarette sales.

The study looked at retail sales data from 44 states and uncovered a disturbing trend. It found that the imposition of restrictions on ENDS flavors resulted in a sharp increase in cigarette purchases. The trend was the same across various cigarette product age profiles – even those popular among the youth.

Researchers found that preventing adults from purchasing flavored vape products just exacerbates the issue of smoking. To put it simply, people are reverting to cigarettes because the government is denying them an alternative, meaning that it is undermining public health.


The findings of the study underscore a critical reality that those who support government intervention tend to miss: When the state regulates personal choices, especially when it comes to substances people willingly consume, the outcome is typically detrimental. It is also ironic that the Food and Drug Administration, which funded the study, refuses to approve vaping products in flavors other than tobacco.

Restrictions on flavored vapes results in an “inequitable tradeoff” that disproportionately affects the 11.2 percent of American adults who smoke. In essence, these restrictions will likely cause far more deaths than it could ever hope to prevent.

In California, the government instituted a “sin tax” on alcohol, cigarettes, and gasoline. As RedState’s Jennifer Van Laar reported, the result was less tax revenue for the Golden State.

Advocates argued that the revenue loss would be offset by savings to Medi-Cal, because people would quit using tobacco and wouldn’t have as many tobacco-related healthcare costs. There are a few problems with that line of thinking. First, it assumes that people will stop using tobacco altogether because they can’t get these flavored tobacco products. There’s voluminous data suggesting that isn’t the case, since people will either buy it on the black market or they’ll switch to other, non-banned items. Second, it assumes that all of the people who use it and will quit are on Medi-Cal right now and that they are currently being treated for tobcaco-related medical issues that place a certain cost on the system. And, it assumes that the Medi-Cal savings will be realized almost immediately. Those are a lot of assumptions, and there’s no data to justify them.


In another article Van Laar also pointed to how these restrictions also resulted in a sharp decrease in funding for the state’s early childhood programs.

The bottom line is that the government’s role should be to protect our rights, not use the threat of arrest or fines to dictate how we live. When the state meddles in people’s personal behavior, the result is always disastrous. In this case, more people might lose their lives because government officials think it is their place to decide what people can and cannot consume.

Unfortunately, the ramifications of what this study exposed will likely fall on the deaf ears of politicians and bureaucrats who think they know better than the rest of us, meaning they will continue to keep these laws in place despite how they negatively impact those affected.
