Jenelle Evans didn't just get off the hook for animal cruelty charges, she also won't be in hot water for allegedly making up a story to police.
Earlier on Thursday, the Columbus County Sheriff announced that the former "Teen Mom" star and her husband, David Eason, would not face animal cruelty charges over the alleged killing of her french bulldog, Nugget.
According to officials, "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."
They also said the allegations of animal cruelty that initially came from Jenelle, "appear to be fabricated."
In North Carolina, filing a false police report can result in a misdemeanor charge, but Jenelle is having a lucky week.
According to an official from the sheriff's department, "At this time, this incident does not meet the elements for that charge."
Nugget has still not been located since he was allegedly murdered, and some believe that Jenelle may have just used the publicity excuse to get investigators off her family's back as they fought to regain custody of their children.
It was quite apparent that neither Jenelle nor her husband believed they were going to lose custody of the situation, and were floored when officials took their kids away for several weeks.
Jenelle had originally told investigators she heard a gunshot, but during the investigation officials could not find any blood, or evidence of weapons.
As we reported, the former "Teen Mom" star was originally behind the story that Eason murdered their dog after he nipped at their 2-year-old daughter, Ensley.
Jenelle has not commented since it was announced she and David Eason were in the clear of any criminal charges.
