A custody exchange between Jon and Kate Gosselin of their 13-year-old daughter Hannah grew so contentious that police were called and Hannah ended up being taken to a hospital via ambulance, In Touch is exclusively reporting.
Kate, 43, tried to pull Hannah out of Jon’s vehicle on Aug. 15, but the 13-year-old screamed, sobbed, and violently resisted as three police officers looked on during the exchange that took place in a parking lot off of a Pennsylvania highway.
The incident was caught on video and In Touch has exclusively obtained a word-for-word account of the shocking ordeal.

“No! Stop, please stop! Let go of me, Mommy!” Hannah screamed at Kate at one point.
Kate responds telling her daughter she’s going to “pull her” out of the car, while Jon tells his daughter to “fight it” and “hold on” to the car if she doesn’t want to go. “Hold on. Hold on. If you don’t want to go, don’t go. I can’t help you. Hold on. Hold on,” Jon, 40, said in the account of the incident.
This one excruciating scene was from a showdown that lasted three hours and didn’t end until police called an ambulance for Hannah, who said her arm was injured. Then, at the hospital, “Kate told the police she thought Jon was a danger and Hannah needed to be protected. So the police removed Jon while Hannah was being treated,” an insider states.
This violent showdown comes after “Jon and Kate had an emergency hearing with a judge after Hannah refused to go back to Kate’s house,” a source explains. On Aug. 11, “The judge granted Jon equal custody of Hannah until he and Kate go to trial.”
And that’s not all. Just yesterday, cops were called to a Pennsylvania-based orthodontist, according to Entertainment Tonight, after the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars got into yet another heated exchange over taking one of their 13-year-old daughters home, though it is unclear whether or not that was Hannah.
