Why Was 911 Called To The Duggar Family’s Home?

The Duggar family is reportedly under investigation by the Arkansas Department of Human Services, and a 911 call was made after a DHS worker visited the family home and the Duggars refused to let him see the minor in question.

In Touch has the transcript of the emergency call made on May 27:

“After identifying himself as a Washington County DHS employee and stating the Duggar family address, the caller tells the 911 operator, ‘We have an investigation and I guess they’re not being cooperative. We have to see the child to make sure the child is all right. So we just need police assistance.'”

The call was then transferred to Washington County, but In Touch makes no mention of what happened afterwards, nor does it state which child DHS wanted to see.

The call was made only days after reports surfaced that Josh Duggar had molested several girls as a teenager, including his sisters. (RELATED: The Duggar Family Hires Mike Huckabee’s PR Guy To Help Clean Up Its Mess)

DHS originally investigated the Duggar family back in 2007 after someone tipped off a hotline about abuse in the family’s home. When they were recently interviewed by Fox’s Megyn Kelly, Jessa Duggar and her sister mentioned the investigation.

“I think definitely like when we were doing the DHS investigation and they’re asking you to tell your story — I mean, it’s one thing to talk to mom and dad and say, ‘Wow, okay, this happened,’ you know, but it’s another thing when a complete stranger is like, ‘Tell me your story here,'” Jessa Duggar said.
