Officials responded to a 911 call about a possible prescription pill overdose at the L.A. apartment where former NFL star Terrell Owens was staying last week.
Owens was transported by ambulance to an L.A. hospital Thursday night. Cops were dispatched to investigate and spoke with the 37-year-old at the hospital.
Terrell has since been released and appears fine, but have to wonder what’s up, since the footballer had no comment for the first time in his entire adult life.
These days, T.O. can only reflect on his career downfall.
T.O. was infamously hospitalized back in 2006 amid reports that he tried to commit suicide by inhaling up to 35 Vicodin pills. He denied that categorically.
He later held a news conference on the matter and said, “The rumor of me taking 35 pills is absurd. I don’t think I would be here if I had taken 35 pills.”
Owens acknowledged a dependence on prescription painkillers at the time but said that incident was merely an accident. Will he claim the same here?
We’ll have to wait and see exactly what the former 49ers, Eagles, Cowboys, Bills and Bengals wideout says … and if Evelyn Lozada weighs in.
