Shannon Beador’s ex-husband, David Beador, recently faced legal consequences for his traffic violations, having been pulled over for reckless driving and speeding at over 100 miles per hour. He was arraigned and formally charged with two misdemeanor counts, pleading not guilty with a pre-trial hearing scheduled for April 9. Shannon, who was previously arrested for a hit-and-run and driving under the influence, has been trying to turn her life around and has been open about her struggles with alcohol abuse.

Shannon’s legal issues began in September when she was booked for a hit-and-run and DUI alcohol. The incident led to her spending time in jail and paying $2,500 in bail. Following this, the Newport Beach Police Department launched an investigation as Shannon’s dog was also in the car during the accident. Prior to her formal charges and three-year probation sentence, Shannon sought help for her substance abuse problems through an outpatient program, indicating that she never drinks and drives but was using alcohol to cope with other unhealthy aspects of her life.

During their marriage, Shannon and David’s relationship struggles were aired on the reality TV show “Real Housewives of Orange County.” Shannon filed for divorce in December 2017, leading to a contentious legal battle over child custody and spousal support. David accused Shannon of drinking excessively in front of their children, leading to her allegedly being awarded $1.4 million and $10,000 a month in support in April 2019. Despite these legal battles, the ex-couple seems to have reconciled and was seen together taking a selfie at a local hotspot in Orange County, California.

The legal issues surrounding David Beador come at a challenging time for Shannon as she continues to work on bettering herself and overcoming her struggles with substance abuse. The reality star opened up about her alcohol consumption and unhealthy coping mechanisms at BravoCon in 2023, revealing that she had spent the previous month focusing on herself. David’s legal troubles are a stark reminder of the challenges faced by both parties post-divorce and how they have been attempting to move on from their tumultuous past.

As David pleads not guilty to his recent charges, he and Shannon are dealing with their legal issues separately, highlighting the ongoing challenges they face post-divorce. The public nature of their past relationship struggles, aired on reality TV and played out in court documents, adds another layer of complexity to their current situation. Despite their troubled history, the ex-couple appears to be working towards an amicable co-parenting relationship and putting the past behind them as they both navigate their separate legal battles.
