The 911 dispatcher told Dr. Michael Farzam: “Don't let him get any weapons or anything like that.”

The doctor also requested police backup, saying: “I'm just calling from my cell phone to request if we can have the police back-up because I don't think the paramedics, y'know... I think, he's definitely going to need to be hospitalized.”

According to reports, the doctor told 911 he needed help for a "male with mental illness." To protect the “Famous” rapper’s identity, the doctor identified him as Jim Jones.

The dispatcher told the doctor: “If anything changes, if he does become physically combative between now and when police and/or paramedics get there, call us back immediately.”
