Everything's ok. We talked to him.
This story changes every hour. First, it was an 'allergic reaction,' then a suicide attempt, then a misunderstanding, communicated by none other than former Cowboys Deion Sanders and Michael Irvin. There was a team press conference featuring TO and Kim Etheridge, TO's publicist, who seems to be the 'friend' that was with him and made the 911 call. This story is strange:
TO admits he took 'extra' pain pills with his nutritional supplements. I wonder what 'extra' means in this case.
He also admits to taking 'some' pills out of the bottle and putting them 'in a drawer.' Doesn't seem conducive to portion control.
The publicist said he was groggy and not himself and couldn't speak.
And the 'allergic reaction' is still in the narrative.
Doesn't make sense to me. If he's on pain killers for his hand, he should never be on a dosage that would make him incoherent. If they're 'reacting' with his supplements, maybe someone should make sure his 'supplement' is not a handful of oxycontin.
Commenters on Blogging the Boys seem to think he was on the level and at least BTB blogger Grizz thinks TO looked on the level in this presser, but that the publicist's story is fishy, and that maybe she overreacted and is unwilling to admit as much.
Keep checking over at Blogging the Boys for updates.
