In a crazy turn of events, Jenelle Evans’ husband, David Eason, will not be facing any animal cruelty charges for the shooting murder of their family dog, after the Teen Mom 2 star admitted to police that she made up the entire story for publicity.

The initial police statement read:

"[Jenelle] contacted Columbus County Sheriff's Office by public service. [She] advised that on April 29th, at approximately 6:30 pm, her dog bit her daughter, leaving a scratch on her face.

"[She] advised that her husband, David Eason, threw the dog outside. She then advised that after David realized that the dog scratched their child, he went outside and shot the dog. During this conversation, Jenelle stated that she did hear a gunshot but did not witness the incident."

Now, in a statement from the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office, police determined:

"Jenelle's accounts were inconsistent with her original account of the events that occurred on April 29.

"Jenelle advised that she was inside with her children at the time of the alleged event.  She advised that she never heard or saw anything to indicate that David shot her dog. Jenelle advised that she did not want the Columbus County Sheriff's Office or the District Attorney's Office to continue with the investigation.

“Jenelle advised that this was her decision that she made on her own free will. She advised that she was not coerced into making this decision.

"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.' Jenelle stated that the reason she filed the animal cruelty report was for the publicity and because she did not know where her dog was."

Back in May, MTV cut ties with Jenelle after she said her husband shot and killed their dog, Nugget. 

Soon after, Jenelle and David lost custody of their kids, however, last week, the pair regained custody of 2-year-old, Ensley, and 4-year-old, Kaiser. Jenelle’s mother, Barbara, still remains in custody of 9-year-old Jace.
