Andy Irons Police Report -- Ambien, Xanax Found

11/3/2010 6:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has just obtained a copy of the police report in the Andy Irons death investigation -- in which cops say they found various prescription drugs in the surfer's hotel room ... but there's no mention of methadone.


The report says when police entered the surfer's hotel room at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport in Texas they discovered Irons' body on the bed "laying on his back with the sheet pulled up to his neck.  The bed covers and pillows were neatly set and nothing appeared out of the ordinary."

According to the report, police found bottles of alprazolam (the generic version of Xanax)  and zolpidem (the generic version of Ambien) on the tables near the bed.

The Star Advertiser claimed in a previous report that investigators discovered methadone inside a zolpidem bottle -- but there was no mention of methadone in the police report.

A crime scene investigation was conducted -- and a report on the investigator's findings are forthcoming.

You douge bags dont know what you are talking about. Xanax is for anxiety and Ambien for sleeping. Both are very commonly used by many people who are not drug addicts.

TMZ stop reporting on this. Let this young man go in peace and do not destroy him on a gossip site. Try the High Road, Harvey.

.....junior pro surfer, junior pro skater, junior pro bmx...all those 'pretty young boy' sports. you know that their agents, etc, are really up to some strange things. i mean look at the degree of drug abuse in those sports. i'm sure you need to keep your 'pets' sedated one way or the other.

Sad but not really much of a story here. Outside of the pro surfing circuit nobody has ever even heard of this guy even if he was good. Would this story be covered if it was one of the top PBA bowlers? PBA events annually pull in more in tickets sales and award more prize money in the US.

#7 That's correct. To the rest of the negative comments you are a bunch of naive idiots! Do your research douch bags!

They don't say how many doses of the meds were missing from the bottles and how much meds were in the body. As people already stated, many people use these medicines. However, they are not ones to abuse either. If he had been fighting an illness, maybe he had become run down or had a heart defect, one never knows--the media (and people) do their usual rush to judgment, without regards to family and friends. Shame on the person that started the methadone rumor, shame on you.
