Police beat reporter Rebecca Lopez at WFAA in Dallas broke the story this morning.
According to a Dallas police report first obtained by News 8, Dallas Cowboys star receiver Terrell Owens attempted suicide Tuesday night.
The report says Owens, 32, took prescription pain pills. Owens broke his right hand in a Sept. 17 game against the Washington Redskins.
A woman told police she observed Owens putting two pills in his mouth.
According to the police narrative, the woman said the prescription of 40 pills was filled on September 18 and–until Tuesday–Owens had taken only five pills.
The police report said Owens was asked if he had taken the rest of the prescription; Owens said, “Yes.”
According to the report, police also asked if he was trying to harm himself. Owens answered, “Yes.”
For as gifted an athlete as Owens is, he’s nothing but trouble off the field. The Cowboys knew this going into the season, so it’s hard to feel sorry for them.
