‘Teen Mom 2′: More Than 25 Emergency Calls Were Placed From Jenelle Evans’ Home in the Past Year
A lot has happened in Jenelle Evans’ life over the last two months. She has been fired, lost custody of her children, and had her dog killed by her husband. More information about the couple, however, is being released, and it looks like trouble at the home they have dubbed “the land” is not just recent. In fact, 25 phone calls to 911 have been placed from the home or about the household in the last 12 months, according to TMZ.
How many calls were placed by Jenelle or David?
Jenelle and David may not be a fan of the police, but they seem perfectly happy to utilize their services when needed. Evans called the police in both October 2018 and December 2018 to report domestic issues. The October 2018 call was for an assault, allegedly perpetrated by Eason. Evans told police that Eason had attacked her and pinned her to the ground.
In December 2018, Evans called the police again to report Eason was smashing up the house and had a gun. The mother of three allegedly hid in the attic to make the phone call, but she left her sleeping 2-year-old in her bedroom.
Police were also asked to respond to a locked vehicle, to serve a warrant, and to serve papers for a lawsuit. An additional call was made to report suspicious white powder that was received by the couple. The white powder 911 call was placed in the wake of Nugget’s death.
How many of the emergency calls were placed by other people?
According to TMZ, about 1/3 of the 25 calls placed to 911 were placed by other individuals who were concerned about what was happening on the Evans-Eason compound. Many of the calls placed by others were made to request a welfare check.
We do know that Nathan Griffith called 911 shortly after the family’s French bulldog was shot and killed by David. Griffith, the father of Kaiser, called the police to check on his son. The cops allegedly performed a welfare check and found that the boy was fine. They left him in the home with Evans and Eason, but just days later he was removed from his preschool and placed into the emergency custody of his paternal grandmother. It is believed that a mandatory reporter at the school called authorities when Kaiser shared what happened to the family dog.
The county did not release information regarding the calls made by individuals outside the home. The most they were willing to share was that the calls were mainly for welfare checks. Police responded to each of those calls, but nothing more came of them.
What does the information mean for their custody battle?
While calling 911 isn’t a problem in and of itself, the content of the calls could spell trouble for the couple who is allegedly desperate to get their children back. Several of the calls concern violence in or around the home, which could make a judge question the couple’s ability to provide a safe environment for the children.
The calls to 911 requesting welfare checks on individuals in the home suggest a somewhat unstable home life, too. The three calls placed by Jenelle regarding David’s behavior are especially chilling when you consider young children were living in the home at the time. The judge presiding over the custody case also heard testimony from several individuals who suggest David and Jenelle have created a hostile home environment that is negatively impacting the kids.
Ensley, 2, Kaiser, 4, and Maryssa, 11 were removed from the home in May. They have since been placed with family members. Ensley has joined her older half-brother, Jace, 9, at Barbara Evans’ home. Kaiser was placed in the care of paternal family members. Maryssa, 11, is David Eason’s daughter from a previous marriage. She is currently being looked after by her maternal grandmother.
