The Emergency Calls Keep On Coming: David Eason Calls 911 on Barbara Evans
Jenelle Evans and David Eason had three of their children removed from their care in May 2019. Since then, they’ve been attending court hearings, and, apparently attempting to make everyone who is currently caring for their children look bad. Both Evans and Eason have spoken out against Barbara Evans since the custody battle got underway, but it seems like the troubled couple is ramping up their efforts. According to TMZ, a 911 call was placed by Eason early yesterday regarding an incident at the elder Evans’ home.
Why did David call 911?
The 911 call was received by dispatchers on Monday, July 1. Allegedly, Jace Evans informed his mother and stepfather that his sister, Ensley, 2, was locked in a room and “freaking out.” Eason told a 911 dispatcher that Barbara Evans had locked the child in a room so she could shower but was later unable to get her out.
It is not known how this entire incident played out, but it’s possible that Ensley herself locked a door and was unable to unlock it. This is not an uncommon occurrence with small children. It is not known what room the child was locked in, or how it came to be that the elder Evans could not access the room.
What was the outcome of David’s 911 calls?
It appears that police responded to the home but found nothing amiss. By the time squad cars arrived at the residence, the incident was over. The 2-year-old was found to be perfectly healthy and happy. Eason also asked the 911 dispatcher to file a report with CPS.
The dispatcher informed Eason that they would not be filing a report, but he was free to do so on his own. It is not known if Eason followed through with the threat, but he did walk into court with a stack of paperwork on Monday alleging he had evidence on “everyone,” according to Radar.
Emergency calls are nothing new for the family
While the latest call is troubling to fans of the Teen Mom franchise, it’s really nothing new for the Evans and Eason homes. In fact, 25 requests were received by dispatchers either from Evans and Eason or about the couple in the last 12 months. Evans’ brother, Colin Evans, also placed eight calls to police dispatchers since February 2019. Colin’s calls were all to report suspicious activity in and around the home he shares with his mother, Barbara.
Evans and Eason also launched a campaign to disgrace the elder Evans in 2017. The couple not only followed the elder Evans to a restaurant but filmed her as she was eating and drinking than proceeded to follow her home. Police responded to the elder Evans’ house after the couple pounded on doors and windows for over an hour. They were told to leave the premises.
The campaign to disgrace the 68-year-old grandmother was apparently linked to a custody battle over Jace, 9. Jace has been living with his grandmother since he was a baby. In the end, the elder Evans was awarded custody of the boy, while his mother received visitations. The visitations have since been halted as the couple battles over the custody of three of their five children.
