Terrell Owens 911 Call Audio Suggests Possible Suicide Attempt

Several weeks ago TMZ reported that an ambulance was called to the home of free agent Terrell Owens for reasons that were unknown. Physically, we know Owens is now fine as he conducted a public workout for NFL teams earlier this week.

But TMZ now has audio of the 911 call and his assistant, the woman who called 911, indicated on the call that Owens took some pills and she believed it was a suicide attempt by the 37-year old receiver.

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."

Back in 2006, reports surfaced that T.O. was taken to the hospital due to a suicide attempt but he and his assistant both denied those reports at the time.
