Here's the 911 call placed by New York Yankees pitcher David Wells moments after he was punched out during a brawl last September in a diner on Manhattan's Upper East Side.
According to prosecutors, the 6'4", 240-pound athlete was sucker-punched by Rocco Graziosa, a 5'7", 150-pound troublemaker now on trial for assault (during the 911 call, the 39-year-old pitcher describes his assailant as a "fucking Italian, little squatty-body motherfucker").
On the tape, Wells--who lost two teeth in the fight--repeatedly slurs his words, curses at the operator, and reports, "My emergency is I just got offended" (TSG thinks Wells meant assaulted).
Below you'll find a transcript of the 911 call and links to the 2:00 tape itself. (1 page)
