A spokesperson for Columbus County Sheriff’s Office in North Carolina told Radar that the child abuse case was closed on July 10. “The officer on the case has tried to make contact with the victim’s father multiple times,” the spokesperson explained. “The victim has been placed back with his mother.”
But Griffith, 30, exclusively told Radar that the Sheriff Office’s hasn’t made an effort to contact him. “They haven’t tried to contact me once,” he said. “It’s not true. I can even check my voicemail right now!”
Fortunately for Griffith, his fight for Kaiser isn’t over. He filed for primary custody of Kaiser on July 24, 2018. He said of the upcoming court hearing, “It’s mediation. We’re going to talk and come to an agreement. If we don’t, then it’s going to go to custody court. I want to be the primary caregiver.”
Griffith and Evans have been fighting over the 4-year-old for years. But the battle heated up when Griffith called the police back in June when he noticed bruises on Kaiser’s butt. He called authorities again on Sunday, July 1 “freaking out” over having to return his son to Evans and Eason.
“I received my child and he has marks all over him,” he said in a 911 call obtained from Columbus County Emergency Services in North Carolina. “I have pictures from the day I picked him up from yesterday… there is bruising now. Kaiser was returned to Evans and Eason on July 3.
Then on July 24, 2018, Griffith filed a motion to modify custody, requesting full legal and physical custody of Kaiser. He accused Eason of being “violent” and “a danger” to the minor child. “Plaintiff and spouse have drug dependency and substance abuse issues,” the motion read. “Jenelle is frequently in criminal trouble and has been arrested over 20 times.” According to the clerk, Griffith claimed, “The minor child in question, as well as another of the Plaintiff’s children, did test positive for THC at birth.”
