T.O Wants to Die????

Ok...all jokes aside. I read this and couldn't believe it. Reportedly, Terrell Owens has been hospitalized after a failed suicide attempt. I really hope that this is one of those stories that's been exagerrated by the media. I'm definitely no T.O fan, but damn...suicide? I don't want the man to die just because I'm no fan of his public persona. If this is true, this is really sad AND (like I've thought all along), he needs help.
Flamboyant Dallas Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens attempted suicide by overdosing on pain medication, even putting two more pills into his mouth after fire rescue personnel arrived, The Associated Press reported Wednesday citing a police report. A Dallas police report released Wednesday morning said Owens told rescue workers "that he was depressed." The rescue worker "noticed that [his] prescription pain medication was empty and observed [Owens] putting two pills in his mouth,'' the police report said. The worker attempted to pry them out with her fingers, then was told by Owens that before this incident he'd taken only five of the 40 pain pills in the bottle he'd emptied. The worker then asked Owens "if he was attempting to harm himself, at which time [he] stated, 'Yes.'" Owens was taken to the emergency room Tuesday night. A source close to Owens told ESPN's Ed Werder early Wednesday morning that Owens was suffering an adverse reaction to painkillers taken for treatment of his fractured hand. (Continue)
I didn't think it was that serious. He appears to be one of those people who's high off of his ego, and would never harm himself. Either way, I hope that he gets it together AND I'm happy that he's still alive. I'm sure Bill Parcellss is too :)

This guy is definitely a trouble maker no doubt. But for people to be saying he tried to kill himself is just crazy. That man had a bad reaction to the medication he is on. Damn reporters your job is to report true stories not false.

They did report the true story. It was the cops who said it was possible suicide.
