Terrell Owens Denies Suicide Attempt

There is uncertainty over what really happened to Terrell Owens last night. According to the Smoking Gun, which obtained a copy of the police report before it was officially released:

The Dallas Cowboys wide receiver, 32, was depressed and told cops that he was trying to harm himself, the report states. A female companion of the athlete told officers that Owens last week filled a prescription for 40 pain pills, but had only taken five of the pills up to yesterday. Owens told police that he had taken the balance of the pills last night.

Owens was taking generic Vicodin (hydrocodone) to relieve the pain of his recently broken hand. He says the Vicodin mixed with supplements he is taking caused him to become ill.

He said Wednesday the confusion likely stemmed from an empty bottle of pain medication found by his publicist, who was with him at the time and called 911. He said the rest of the pills were in a drawer.

The police report has since been officially released with the parts about suicide blacked out. When asked why he answered "yes" when asked if he was trying to harm himself, Owens said, "I wasn't coherent as they probably thought I was. A number of people were asking me questions. I don't remember the police officers that were in there or the doctors that were in there."
