TMZ is reporting that out-of-work NFL receiver Terrell Owens tried to kill himself on October 6, 2011 according to a 911 call made by his personal assistant.
Owens reportedly overdosed on pills according to his assistant:
During the call, placed at 11:02 PM, the dispatcher asks the assistant on the phone, “Was this a suicide attempt?” — and she responds, “Yes, I believe so.”
While she was on the phone with the dispatcher, the woman claims T.O. was “talking to his girlfriend, ex-girlfriend … [I]don’t really know what you wanna call it.”
The same thing happened with Owens back in 2006 when he took 35 Vicodin and later claimed he just had a bad reaction to the pain pills.
Owens last played football for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010. He has been rehabbing a torn knee ligament and just this week worked out in hopes of a NFL team signing him for the remainder of the season.
If this 911 call turns out to be legit then T.O. should be ordered to undergo counseling and seek medical help.
