Jenny McCarthy is raising a son who seems to be a stickler for rules.

Though the soon-to-be former "View" co-host said it's "awesome" that Evan, 12, is a "rule follower," she also shared stories about times it nearly got her into legal trouble.

"We're driving in the car and of course I text and drive," she said on her new Sirius radio show, "Dirty Sexy Funny." "He called the police on me and said, 'My mom is texting and driving right now.' True story."

Jenny McCarthy Reveals the Reason She Left 'The View'

To avoid a possible run-in with the police, McCarthy, 41, said she grabbed his phone and threw it out of the car window. However, it wasn't the only time Evan tried to get his mom in trouble. Once, when she sneaked outside to smoke a cigarette, he couldn't find her and became anxious.

"He called 911 and said, 'I am alone in the house. My mom abandoned me,'" she recalled. "I go back in the house and it's 911 and they're like, 'Your child just called. Is there an emergency?' I'm like, 'What?! No! Everything is fine.'"
