Information from the city about a report of domestic violence at Greensboro City Manager Tai Jaiyeoba’s house over the holidays is difficult and time consuming to obtain.
However, a transcript of the notes of several Metro 911 calls from Jaiyeoba’s house on Tuesday, Dec. 28 offers more evidence that this was a serious case of domestic violence. The transcript was not provided by the City of Greensboro.
According to the 911 notes, “Caller Statement: CALLER ADV CITY MANAGER IS KILLING HIS CHILDREN.”
Those familiar with the incident but not willing to speak on the record said that none of Jaiyeoba’s children were seriously injured.
The 911 notes then state that there was no answer on the call back and a notation that is far too common in Greensboro, “GPD 10-100 Dist.” The 10-100 code means that there is no police car currently available to answer the call.
The notes continue, “FEM ON THE LINE.. STATING THAT DAD IS ABUSING THEM…. TRYING TO SAY THAT SHE PUSHED HIM AND BROKE HIS ARM. ACTIVE DISORDER IN BACKGROUND. STATED NO 10-32 … HUNG UP AGAIN.”
The “NO 10-32” means no weapons.
According to the notes, Emergency Medical Services responded to the call and was “staging,” which according to a former law enforcement officer means that EMS was waiting for the Greensboro police to arrive to get the situation under control before entering the residence.
The notes also state:
- DOMESTIC DISTURBANCE
- In progress.
- Caller on scene.
- Vict caller on scene
- No access to wpns.
- Physical DOMESTIC DISTURBANCE.”
The notes end stating that the situation was “UNDER CONTROL.”
A public records request for the 911 calls on Tuesday, Dec. 28 has been made, but from the 911 notes, it appears there was a serious domestic disturbance at Jaiyeoba’s home on Dec. 28 involving the city manager and several of his children and both EMS and the Greensboro Police Department responded.
According to those familiar with the incident but unwilling to speak for attribution, Jaiyeoba suffered the most severe injury, which was a dislocated shoulder.
So far the Greensboro City Council has held no meeting to discuss the “Domestic Disturbance” involving Jaiyeoba, one of the City Council’s two employees. The other City Council employee is City Attorney Chuck Watts.
One might think that the City Council would be interested in any domestic disturbance involving the city manager that reached the point that the Greensboro police and Guilford County EMS responded. But the City Council can only take action at an official meeting and no official meeting has been held or scheduled to discuss the incident.
