NEW YORK (CBS) In an unexpected (not really) twist in the media-explosion that is "Jon and Kate Plus 8," the cops were called to the Gosselin residence in Lower Heidelberg Township, Pa. Thursday night after the dueling duo got into a blowout fight, according to celebrity gossip site TMZ.
In a video interview posted on TMZ.com, Jon Gosselin said Kate Gosselin called the police after he refused to let her in the house during his time with their children. "She tried to come home yesterday and I wouldn't let her in the gate. And I guess she called police," he said.
Jon Gosselin said Kate Gosselin "didn't agree with my babysitting."
Call centers around the country are now looking to follow in the footsteps of this tech-savvy town, which will begin accepting emergency texts on Wednesday.
Some 911 call centers can already receive text messages, but require an intermediary service to do so. The Waterloo system will accept incoming 911 texts directly.
For now, only subscribers to i wireless, a local carrier affiliated with T-Mobile, will be able to use the service, and only within Black Hawk County. Those on other carriers will get a reply saying they need to call 911 instead.
Intrado, a company that provides 911 support to local carriers, is working with other carriers to help them handle 911 texts as well. As a future upgrade, call centers may be able to receive photos and video from cell phones as well as automatically track the caller's location, which could help emergency responders prepare for an accident scene or identify a suspect.
