Days after Jerry Falwell Jr. resigned as president of Liberty University, his wife reportedly called 911 to their home, stating that Falwell was drunk and bleeding.
The Huffington Post has obtained the audio recording of a 911 call from Becki Falwell, who had been seeking help for her husband who was intoxicated and described him as losing “a lot of blood right now.â She made the call around 2:30 a.m. August 31, after a few hours earlier contacting her church and informing officials that her husband had fallen down the stairs on Aug. 30. She told officials she had to break through a back door with a chair when she arrived at their house in Bedford County, Virginia, because all the doors were locked.
“The more I tell you the name, the more you’re going to understand why we’re not talking to you right now,” Becki Falwell said. Dispatch logs, obtained by the publication via a public records request, state that “He won’t let her take him to the hospital as he is stubborn. Caller was not forthcoming.”
Less than a week after resigning as president of Liberty University, Jerry Falwell Jr.'s wife, Becki, reported that her husband was injured in a fall after drinking, according to 911 transcripts and audio obtained by the Huffington Post. https://t.co/qji9hoenqz
