CBS affiliate WBTV reports that the tapes, from Dec. 16, include two calls. The first is an unidentified woman calmly telling the operator that she is driving behind a yellow truck with "a black man on it with no shirt on, and he's got his arm in a cast and black pants on," she told a dispatcher.
"He's beating on the back of this truck window... I don't know if he's trying to break in or something. It just looks crazy. It's a girl driving it." She then says that the truck turned off of the street she was driving on and that she did not follow it.

The second 911 call is from an unidentified male who says he needs an ambulance because there is a man in his mid-20's lying in the road "definitely unconscious." When the dispatcher asks the caller if he is near the man and if he can see if he is breathing the caller says he is about 200 feet away but that there is "a crowd of people around him" and that it appeared that someone was "taking his pulse."

The man, later identified as Chris Henry, was rushed to the hospital but died around 6:36 a.m. Thursday. Henry, a receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals, was 26.
Police said the dispute began at a home about a half-mile away, and Henry jumped into the bed of the pickup truck as Tonga was driving away from the residence. Police said at some point when she was driving, Henry "came out of the back of the vehicle."
