In a shocking revelation, Vicki Gunvalson alleged on this week’s episode of the RHOC, that Shannon confided in her that her husband David had physically abused her in the past. Now, court documents reveal that in 2003, David was once arrested for battery.
According to The Daily Mail, David Beador, who owns Beador Construction Inc., was charged with misdemeanor counts of assault and ‘battery against a cohabitant’ in February 2003. At the time, David was living with Shannon and their three daughters.
Shannon denied there was ever any physical assault, telling Star Magazine: “There was no abuse, no physical anything. We had an argument that was resolved very quickly afterward. I just thought that if I called the police, the fight would end. We’ve moved on; it’s over and done.”
It is claimed that David pleaded guilty to both charges and completed three years of informal probation. He also allegedly completed 10 days in a work program and a voluntary batterer’s treatment program.
In a separate report at the time, it was claimed that David was investigated by Newport Beach police on the two counts of assault and battery but the case was dismissed after he pleaded not guilty.
