Police Group Upset With Statement By T.O.'s Publicist

DALLAS (AP)  The president of the Dallas Police Association demanded today that Terrell Owens and his publicist apologize for statements disputing portions of a police report related to the star receiver's trip to a hospital emergency room.

Senior Corporal Glenn White says -- quote -- "The officers reacted because they were called to this location to do this job. Now they're being put under a microscope by some fancy little football person."

Owens spent Tuesday night in the hospital after what he later called an allergic reaction to pain medication. The police report, later redacted in part, referenced an attempted suicide.

Dallas Police Chief David Kunkle said late today that Owens' case as an "accidental overdose," not an attempted suicide.  But he stood behind officers' handling of the case.

Owens' publicist who made the 9-1-1 call, Kim Etheredge, said yesterday that entries in the police report were inaccurate. She said she did not say he was depressed and "did not take anything out of his mouth," as the report said.

Owens said at the news conference he could not remember what he said to officers.

Etheredge couldn't be reached today.

Kunkle said in a news conference that Owens and Etheredge should file internal affairs complaints if they disagree with how officers handled the incident. He repeatedly said he believes officers accurately documented what happened.
