Earlier this year, Bill says he took some “drastic measures,” just so he wouldn’t have to go home. He claims he decided to drive recklessly in front of police to the point that he would be thrown in jail.
“I was trying to get arrested so I could avoid the chaos at home – even if just for one night. It’s a nightmare,” he says.

“If we knew how to stick to a punishment and have them stick to it without them harming themselves, we wouldn’t be here,” says Jen. “We don’t know how. Clearly, we don’t.”
The couple says their daughters lie, fight, steal from family members, and are addicted to marijuana.
