Former Auburn and current Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton personally requested police assistance following a car accident earlier this month in Atlanta, according to a 911 call released by TMZ Sports on Sunday.
“I need the police,” Newton calmly told the emergency operator as he attempted to file a police report.
Newton’s $300,000 Ferrari F12 was involved in what appeared to be a minor crash with a dump truck on April 6, according to an initial report from TMZ Sports.
Both parties seemed to leave the accident without any major injuries as they ultimately decided to forgo a police report rather than wait on the authorities to arrive.
Newton had previously been involved in a much more serious car accident in November 2014 after he flipped his truck, which resulted in a transverse process injury that forced him to stay at a local North Carolina hospital overnight.
However, the former Heisman Trophy winner’s recent accident seemed to leave him unscathed as he hosted a shopping spree for 17 Special Olympics youth athletes at a Dick’s Sporting Goods store in Atlanta on Thursday, according to TMZ Sports.
