Terrell Owens 911:

Called for Possible Pill Overdose

10/10/2011 12:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1010_to_ex_tmz
Emergency officials were responding to a call about a possible prescription pill overdose when they were dispatched to the L.A. apartment where Terrell Owens was staying last week ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

As we first reported, Owens was transported by ambulance to an L.A. hospital Thursday night. Cops were also dispatched to investigate -- and spoke with T.O. at the hospital.

Owens has since been released.

A rep for Owens had no comment on the matter.

T.O. was famously hospitalized back in 2006 -- when he insisted he had a bad reaction to painkillers ... despite reports that he tried to commit suicide by inhaling 35 Vicodin pills.

T.O. later held a news conference on the matter and stated, "The rumor of me taking 35 pills, I think is absurd. I don't think I would be here if I had taken 35 pills."

Maybe they should do some studies for brain contusions? Brain injuries in football players have long gone undetected or cross-referenced with the incidence of suicide/ depression.

Doesn't sound like T.O. is handling life without the fast lane too good. He needs to "buck up" and pull himself together. There are lots of us living without that kind of fame and money and we are doing just fine. Hopefully this isn't some kind of suicide attempt, whatever it is, it doesn't look too good.

Wow! It must be terrible not to be in the limelight anymore, and to be a hasbeen. T.O. must be horrified of sitting behind a braodcast desk on ESPN, or making hair-dye commercials.... These guys must think the world revolves around them... I'd try to kill myself too....

Things will now become much worse in TO's own mind, he is no longer the star athlete he has been most of his life. In a couple of years he will be just another ex player who will be out of the limelight, his reality show will be off the air since he will no longer be relevent to people.
Where does this leave a guy like TO who loves to be the center of attention? He will turn to pills and it will not be pretty for him as he approaches his 40's.
