According to a TMZ report on July 11, deputies from the Columbus County Sheriff's Office responded to the couple's North Carolina home in late April after Jenelle claimed to have heard a gunshot after David took Nugget out of their home to punish the animal for nipping at their two-year-old daughter.

"Jenelle advised that 'she don't know where the dog is, '" the statement continued.

"Jenelle advised that 'She don't know where the dog is.' She also advised that 'I don't know if she was shot or killed or not, '" the statement read. The reality star then alleged Eason threw the dog outside before later going outside and shooting it, according to police.

"He said to me, 'Mrs".

"Nugget... I'm crying everyday", she wrote. "I have many media outlets calling me about it and I want to tell you right now if this is a publicity stunt you need to tell me because I have other cases including things like rape that I have to deal with", she told The Hollywood Gossip. "I love you so much and I'm so sorry".

Police never found a weapon or evidence of Nugget on the property, TMZ said. They didn't find anything against me in any sort of way.

On May 1, 2019, Columbus County Sheriff's Office and Columbus County Animal Control initiated a joint investigation into allegations of animal cruelty that reportedly occurred at a residence on Money Hole Road in Riegelwood.

Evans, 27, claimed Eason subsequently shot the pooch, though she did not witness the incident and only heard a gunshot. "I feel very attacked and exploited for no reason". "Jenelle advised that she did not want the Columbus County Sheriff's Office or the District Attorney's Office to continue with the investigation". In a since-deleted Instagram post of the dog, Eason can be heard saying that he doesn't care whose dog it is, he can't allow one to snap at his baby. "I'm all about protecting my family, it is my life's mission".

'Well I'm not trying to be mean, but I pretty much saw it coming cause Amber doesn't have custody of Leah, ' referring to the pair's 2016 custody agreement in which her ex Gary Shirley obtained primary custody of their child.

Immediately following the alleged killing, a rep told us that Evans and Eason were working on their relationship and planned to attend therapy.

She added, "He completed Anger Management Classes, we did Co-Parenting Classes together, and he stopped posting to social media for a while now".
