Beador and Janssen claimed they ended their four-year relationship in November 2022 — but sources told they were "definitely dating" when she got her DUI nearly one year later.

"Our animal control officer looked into the incident, and there was no injury to the dog and no crime related to the dog," NBPD public information officer Sgt. Steve Oberon told on Wednesday.

As this outlet reported, Beador was arrested last month after "clipping" her vehicle into the residential home and driving off with Archie. Police sources said she parked her car in the middle of the street and pretended she was walking the dog when officers arrived.

The Bravolebrity had been under investigation by the department's animal control unit since at least September 22, when Page Six broke the story; however, has confirmed the case has been closed.

A source connected to Beador told this outlet that her beloved golden retriever was "completely normal" after the incident.

"She's going to have him checked out to be safe," the insider said at the time, adding Archie was "eating, sleeping, and playing normally."

PETA wasn't happy about the incident, issuing an exclusive statement to following the news.

“If your dog or child is in a vehicle or even waiting for you at home, that’s an extra incentive never to drive drunk or buzzed, although looking out for strangers and for yourself should already be enough to convince you not to drink and drive," PETA's Senior Vice President Lisa Lange told us. "PETA’s glad Shannon Beador and her dog are safe now, and we hope they get over the trauma swiftly.”

Beador is allegedly in an outpatient behavioral wellness program with an alcohol component. Her attorney revealed she's "taking full responsibility for her actions," with TMZ reporting she's had been in talks about paying for the damage she caused.
