Jeff Fisher: Vince Young "Mentioned Suicide Several Times"

New, comments

Well just when we thought this was over, The City Paper has released the Metro Police "matter of record" from the incident Monday night.  Here is what it says about Monday:

The report from Central Precinct Lt. Andrea Swisher states Titans' head of security Steve Burke notified police that he had “a player over at the stadium going off.”

“Sgt. Windus later advised me that it was Vince Young and that he was driving a black Mercedes and armed with a gun,” Swisher’s report states.

This is just scary stuff.  I hate to keep talking about this but more stuff just keeps coming out.  

Here is what Swisher mentioned from her conversation with Coach Fisher:

“I asked him (Fisher), ‘What made her worry about him?’ He stated, ‘His mood, his emotions, he is injured, he wants to quit, and he mentioned suicide several times.’ He (Fisher) went on to state that he (Young) left the house with a gun,” Swisher’s report states.

Click on the link above to read the rest of the report.  It mentions that one of VY's gjys had tried to follow him from his home in Williamson County but could't keep up with him on Interstate 65.

Now we can all agree that we cannot believe anything Jeff Fisher says publicly regarding where VY is mentally.  He is obviously going to lie to protect VY's interest, which is absolutely what he should do.  Vince needs to get help, and I am hoping that the Titans have taken the necessary steps to get him the help he needs.
