How often do you hear about a police department editing a 911 emergency call audio before releasing a copy of the audio to the media? Almost never -- unless the subject of the call is a well-known celebrity.
According to celebrity gossip site TMZ.com, the LA police edited -- or redacted -- certain portions of the recording of that emergency 911 call made from actress Demi Moore's house the night she was stricken with seizures.
TMZ clearly indicates that portions of the redacted audio pertained to any mention of drugs that Moore may have ingested or consumed that night.
Being a celebrity has its benefits. If that were you or I, the embarrassing tape would have been released unedited.
Capt. Jaime Moore with the L.A. City Fire Dept. tells TMZ ... the FD redacted portions from the tape. Sources in the City Attorney's office tell us references to specific drugs and other substances Demi ingested were redacted because of privacy issues. As TMZ first reported, one of the friends at Demi's house told paramedics she has been using whip-its -- nitrous oxide.
The person says she's been taking some other stuff recently but she didn't know what it was ... and she was having "issues" lately.
The caller said "She's burning up."
