Michael. Now to that new trouble for evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr. This morning, a new 911 call emerging from his wife Becki about Falwell's condition saying he was in danger just days after those allegations emerged about the falwells' relationship with a pool attendant. Erielle reshef has all the details. Good morning, erielle. Reporter: Good morning to you, Michael. It has been a tumultuous few months for Jerry Falwell Jr. And now the Huffington post obtaining those 911 calls, Becki Falwell returning home from church to find the doors locked breaking in the back door with a chair finding her husband bleeding. This morning, a fall from grace for Jerry Falwell Jr. The Huffington post releasing details of a 911 call allegedly place bid his wife Becki Falwell saying she returned home one night from church at 11:00 P.M. To find her husband injured and bleeding. According to the Huffington post Becki Falwell confirmed to the dispatch their her husband had been drinking but when the 911 operator asked if he had been drinking heavily, she said, I'm not going to answer that question. Dispatch logs also obtained by the Huffington post show Falwell told first responders he hit his head on a crash can and they had found empty alcohol containers an officer noting Falwell had slurred and slowed speech. The accident and 911 call taking place on August 30th, just one day before liberty university announced an independent investigation into its former president. I would like to also take this opportunity -- Reporter: The private evangelical liberty university imposes a strict code of ethics for students including banning them from drinking alcohol. As our friendship has grown -- Reporter: Falwell resigned from the school in August after a series of scandals, first this racy photo he posted on social media with his arm around his wife's assistant. He apologized and took it down saying it was just in good fun from a costume party. Then the explosive news story about Falwell, his wife Becki and pool attendant Giancarlo Granda, the 29-year-old claiming he had a seven-year affair with Becky KIAH as Falwell at times looked on. Falwell denies involvement. Granda spoke with "Gma" last month about the affair. Jerry is lying. That was his game plan from the beginning to throw her under the bus which I think speaks a lot about who he is, about his and he was aware from day one of our relationship. Reporter: And we reached out to both Falwell jr.'s representatives and to liberty university and so far we have not heard back. Whit. Okay, erielle, thank you.
