Jim Edmonds enlisted the help of local authorities to make sure that estranged wife Meghan King was fit to watch their three children after she returned home from a night out with her friends.
Jim's move comes just over a day after he called the police on his wife Meghan after becoming anxious about her ability to care for their three children, two-year-old Aspen and 17-month-old twins Hayes and Hart, following a night out between Meghan and her friends.
'Meghan came home from being out with friends and she had a couple glasses of wine, ' a source reported.
Earlier this week, Jim confirmed to PEOPLE that he had police conduct a welfare check on his and Meghan's children due to his worries about her ability to care for them. '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.
"We responded to the home, basically to keep the peace", he told Page Six. An officer was there with Jim and told her Jim said he was anxious she couldn't care for [their] kids'.
"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?"
"Meghan was appalled", an insider revealed.
Following news of Jim's call to police on Wednesday night, Ladue Police Chief Ken Adreski Jr. offered a statement.
Jim also allegedly accused Meghan of cheating with the man who dropped her off. "She has never been anything short of a fantastic mother".
Speaking with reporters from the outlet, the Ladue Police Chief stated that the couple is now going through a divorce as well as custody proceedings, so they showed up to make sure everything was ok. On the 25th of October, Jim took himself to the divorce court to file for legal separation after Meghan accused him of sleeping with Carly Wilson, who is their 22-year-old childcare provider.
"Meghan had never been so humiliated in her life", a source adds. Both Jim and Carly have denied this accusation.
After a few days of bashing Meghan on social media, Jim appeared apologetic and said he wanted to "make it right" with his wife. The former Real Housewives of Orange County star shared several before-and-after photos of the enormous space, including one of her "dream closet".
