On Wednesday, the former Real Housewives of Orange County star had just arrived home from a night out with friends when the cops showed up to investigate her ability to care for her children after drinking. Apparently, Jim had called the police, concerned about Meghan’s state of mind upon returning to her house after the outing.

An insider close to the couple first revealed this interaction to the cops via Us Weekly on Thursday, informing the outlet the momma of three was dumbfounded by the presence of police in her home. The source revealed the entire chain of events from Wednesday, too, saying (below):
“Meghan came home from being out with friends and she had a couple glasses of wine. It was the first time Jim stayed at her house and put the kids to sleep since he filed for divorce, so she met up with friends. She didn’t drive. She was washing her face when she heard someone knock around 10:30 p.m. An officer was there with Jim and told her Jim said he was worried she couldn’t care for [their] kids.”
Whoa… talk about escalating the situation, ya know?
According to another eyewitness there at the time, the officer asked her if she was “comfortable and capable of taking care” of the children in the home — Aspen, two, along with 17-month-old twins Hayes and Hart. By that point in the night, the kids were reportedly in bed; Jim had been watching them that evening while Meghan was out.
The former reality TV star apparently responded to the officer (below):
“Of course, yes! In your personal opinion, do you think that I am in any way, incapable, of taking care of my three little baby children who are totally desperate for a parent?”
“Right now,” the officer reportedly replied, “my opinion is that you are fit enough to take care of your children tonight and that’s all that I’m concerned with.”

After more consultation with Meghan and Jim, the officer apparently left — but not before the 49-year-old former MLB legend allegedly first accused Meghan of “cheating on him with the man who dropped her off at their home,” according to the same witness.
So much going on here!
Ultimately, things died down for the evening after Edmonds “offered to sleep on the couch for the night and Meghan rejected that offer,” and he left.
But according to an insider, the fall-out here is going to be felt for a while:
“Meghan was appalled.She had never been so humiliated in her life. She has never been anything short of a fantastic mother. She thinks her estranged husband was attempting to get back at her, but ultimately realized he made a bad decision.”
Wow. Appalled is one way to put it!
Though the 35-year-old hasn’t officially commented on all the alleged details, Jim did talk to Us Weekly on Thursday, after the incident, and was defensive about his decision to call the cops. He said:
“I did not call the police on my wife. I called the police to protect the situation and make sure there were no further issues.”
Clearly, there’s no shortage of bad blood here as divorce continues to play out between these two, and things like this surely don’t help the situation.
What do U think about it all, Perezcious readers?! Where do they go from here?? Sound OFF in the comments (below)…
