*Exclusive* Isiah Thomas in Psych Ward

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

According to Livesteez, the 911 call from the night Isiah felt like ending it all has been released, also confirmation on him being admitted to the psyche ward.

Isiah Thomas was confirmed as the person found passed out in his home from an alleged overdose. Now, a newly released police report indicates the person who called 911 about an overdose at Thomas’ home believed the victim had stopped breathing. “Upon my arrival I assisted (another officer) who was administering O2 to (name withheld) lying on the kitchen floor,” the report said. It does not say who made the call. Authorities have not publicly identified Thomas as the accidental overdose victim, but a person familiar with the case, speaking on condition of anonymity because the police report had not been released, confirmed to the AP that it was Thomas. The report also says the patient was taken to White Plains Hospital and that someone gave “a witness deposition” about the episode. The town of Harrison cited “unwanted invasion of personal privacy” as the reason for redacting the names from the police report.

In the report, a police officer says he went to the former Knicks coach’s home in the Purchase section of Harrison around midnight Oct. 23 in response to a report of “(name withheld) not breathing.”

This man has some demons. SMH

We’ll keep you updated on his situation.

    This story is a week old. Isiah claimed that the ambulance was at his home for his 17 year old daughter.

    He refused to admit that he tried to commit suicide. He is a piece of crap for blaming it on his daughter. What a pathetic asshol*. A father is suppose to protect his children, not bring shame upon them to cover your own ass.

    He should of finished the damn job.

  • PsychRN

    Suicide is nothing to joke about. Men are more likely to die from their suicidal gestures than women. Black men are the most underserved population in recieving psychiatric help. At least he has the financial means to get help, hope his familiy and friends support his recovery

    HERE IS THE STORY BEHIND THE COVER UP:

    NBA | Police tout “cover-up” in Isiah Thomas overdose

    By The Associated Press

    NEW YORK — A suburban police chief likened the conflicting accounts of an accidental overdose at Isiah Thomas’ home to a “cover-up” and rebuked the former New York Knicks coach Saturday for saying it was his teenage daughter who required treatment.

    “It wasn’t his daughter,” Harrison Police Chief David Hall told The Associated Press. “And why they’re throwing her under the bus is beyond my ability to understand.”

    Authorities were called early Friday to Thomas’ Westchester County home, where police said a 47-year-old man was taken to the hospital and treated for an overdose of sleeping pills. Several media outlets reported that police confirmed it was Thomas who went to the hospital.

    But reached on his cellphone Friday, the 47-year-old NBA great told the New York Post he had not been treated for a sleeping pill overdose, and that it was 17-year-old daughter Lauren who had a medical issue.

    It “wasn’t an overdose,” he told the newspaper. “My daughter is very down right now. None of us are OK.”

    Hall forcefully refuted Thomas’ statement.

    “My cops … know the difference between a 47-year-old black male and a young black female,” Hall said.

    “These people should learn something from Richard Nixon — it’s not the crime, it’s the cover-up,” he added.

    Voice mails and text messages from the AP were left on Thomas’ cellphone Saturday. Messages left earlier with Thomas’ publicist and two of his attorneys were not returned.

    Thomas’ 20-year-old son, Joshua, lashed out at Hall’s comments.

    “Saying that someone is being thrown under the bus when you are talking about health issues is disrespectful,” the Indiana University student wrote in a text to the New York Daily News.

    Police were classifying the case as an “accidental drug overdose” on “a number” of prescription sleeping pills, Hall said.

    The developments are the latest drama in what has been a difficult year for Thomas.

    He was fired as the Knicks’ coach April 18 after a season of dreadful basketball, a sexual harassment lawsuit and unending chants from fans demanding his dismissal. Still, he was retained by the organization as an adviser and consultant.

    Notes

    • Lacking depth in the frontcourt, Charlotte was depending on Sean May’s healthy return from knee surgery to fill the gaping hole at power forward. But after watching an unfit May lumber through eight exhibition games collecting more fouls (22) than rebounds (21), coach Larry Brown believes the Bobcats will have to fill the position by committee.

    “Right now I don’t think he’s ready to play at all,” Brown said of May Saturday. “I think he’s trying, but I don’t think he’s in the kind of shape to be able to compete on this level.”

    May has played in just 58 of a possible 246 games since he was selected 13th overall in the 2005 draft.

    • Portland exercised fourth-year options on the contracts of LaMarcus Aldridge, guards Sergio Rodriguez and Brandon Roy, and the third-year option on Greg Oden. The moves keep all four players under contract through the 2009-10 season.

    • New Orleans has exercised one-year team options on former first-round draft picks Hilton Armstrong and Julian Wright. The moves add a fourth season to Armstrong’s contract and a third to Wright’s.

    @msgoodie goodie

    What else do you need to believe it. I think he is under pressure and sense it was a bothced attempt he wants to deflect the attention from himself onto someone else which only proves that again he is not ready to face his demons and get help for hisself it is ntohing wrong with going to someone and talking about things if that’s what you need to do. He needs to put his pride on the side and get the help he needs.

    Demons?!? Yeah he had about 15 of them…there called The New York Knicks!

    Updated: October 30, 2008, 7:49 PM EST add this RSS blog email Print WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) – A newly released police report indicates the man found on Isiah Thomas’ kitchen floor after an apparent overdose on sleeping pills had stopped breathing.

    Authorities have not publicly identified Thomas as the victim, but AP and several other media outlets have all confirmed within the past week that it was the former NBA star and Knicks coach.

    In the report, a police officer says he went to the former New York Knicks coach’s home in the Purchase section of Harrison around midnight on Oct. 23 in response to a report of “(blank) not breathing.”

    “Upon my arrival I assisted (another officer) who was administering O2 to (blank) lying on the kitchen floor,” the report said.

    It does not say who made the call.

    The report also says the patient was taken to White Plains Hospital and that someone gave “a witness deposition” about the episode.

    The town of Harrison cited “unwanted invasion of personal privacy” as the reason for redacting the names from the police report.

    On Tuesday, Harrison Police Chief David Hall provided new details about last week’s emergency in which officers were handed a bottle of prescription pills at Thomas’ Westchester County home.

    Hall said the bottle had a name on it, but he would not disclose the precise medication. He said police called the overdose accidental because there was no suicide note and no indication the victim suffered from depression.

    Multiple published reports indicated that the medication in question was the sleeping pill Lunesta.

    Thomas has denied being the victim, and Hall criticized the ex-coach for saying it was his 17-year-old daughter, Lauren, who required treatment.

    “As parents, you try to protect your kids; you don’t say they did something when it was you who did it,” Hall said. “We know the difference between a 47-year-old man and a teenager.”

    Hall said the 911 call made late Thursday from Thomas’ multimillion-dollar home went first to state police, then to Harrison. Harrison police on patrol nearby got to the scene first, saw a 47-year-old man on the floor and went into “standard operating procedure,” Hall said. They administered oxygen until an ambulance crew arrived and took over, eventually lifting the man onto a gurney and taking him to White Plains Hospital.

    He said it was his department’s first call to Thomas’ house. An emergency services log, with the names of the caller and the patient blacked out, indicates the ambulance arrived at the house minutes before midnight.

    Hall said someone at the house gave his officers a prescription bottle, and the officers gave it to the ambulance crew so the hospital doctors would know about it. They then searched the house for other medications that might have been involved but found none, he said.

    As a player, Thomas won NBA titles with the Detroit Pistons in 1989 and 1990 and an NCAA championship with Indiana in 1981. He joined the Knicks as the team president in 2003 and became coach in June 2006 after Larry Brown was fired.

    He was fired as the Knicks’ coach April 18 after a season of dreadful basketball, a tawdry sexual harassment lawsuit and unending chants from fans demanding his dismissal. Still, he was retained by the organization as an adviser and consultant.

    @Miss goodie

    You still don’t beleive me.

    He needs to own up to it and get some help. He is very selfish to do that to his daughter. I can’t stand his ass after this.

  • Pride

    Isiah is GAY. He’s benn conflicted for years.He hates women.Only exception is his mother & daughter

  • Butterscotch

    Hopefully, he’ll get some help. Just goes to show that all the loot in the world can buy happiness. However, it was rather lame to blame it on his daughter. No one can fault him for having issues…everyone has issues. Just admit it, get help and try to move forward.

  • ShavonDenise

    I believe Isiah was a little off. Whatever that may mean. He seems not to be comfortable with himself so I believe all of the above.

  • Bringthanoize

    It was IThomas who od’d folks- truss.

    Isiah is bisexual and like trannys.

    Him and Magic rolled tite back in the day. Magic has been linked to the desceased gay singer Jermaine Stewart(We Don’t Have To Take Our Clothes Off) and trannys- do the math.

    Stress makes folks do real crazy stuff especially when their secrets will be exposed.
