Recent reports show that former New York Knicks head honcho, Isiah Thomas actually stopped breathing when he police reported to his home last week. It hasn’t been officially said that it was Isiah, but the description of the person who police showed to help assist matched his description. Later on, Isiah said it was actually his daughter who had the “accidental overdose”. But Police quickly said that was not true. ESPN’s Henry Abbott reported that it was the sleep medication lunesta that Isiah took like they were M&M’s. More from ESPN:
A newly released police report indicates the person who called 911 about an overdose at Isiah Thomas‘ home believed the victim had stopped breathing.
The patient’s name is redacted from the Town of Harrison report, which was released Thursday night under a Freedom of Information request from The Associated Press.
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 “[blank] not breathing.”
“Upon my arrival I assisted [another officer] who was administering O2 to [blank] lying on the kitchen floor,” the report said.
