(Newser) – A star from the Teen Mom franchise was hospitalized over the weekend, and TMZ says it now has the 911 call she made from her North Carolina home. In the call, a sobbing woman said to be 26-year-old Jenelle Evans tells the dispatcher that her husband, David Eason, attacked her after he'd been drinking and pinned her down so hard on the ground that "I think I heard my f---ing collarbone crack." She also says in the Oct. 13 recording, made just before 10pm Saturday, that she can't move her arm. The dispatcher calmly draws more info out of the woman, who says Eason had apparently left the home with a friend, leaving her and four sleeping children in the home. Us Weekly says it was Evans' own three young kids, ages 20 months to 9 years old, and an unidentified child, but that's unclear from the tape.

People confirms Evans was hospitalized, and Columbus County's 911 chief tells the magazine that a 911 call was placed from Evans' home and that two cops responded. "The female was transported to the hospital via private vehicle," not the ambulance originally requested, the chief says. But a Columbus County Sheriff's Office rep says no incident report was filed, and Evans' own rep tells People the reality star had had people over to her house and lit a bonfire, and that Evans "ended up tripping and falling by the fire." Evans appeared on the second season of the MTV reality series. (Another Teen Mom star ended up in prison.)
