According to the police report pertaining to Reid Fliehr's death, "drugs" is the only word used to describe what "incapacitated" Reid upon being found dead Friday morning in a Charlotte, N.C. hotel.

The police report, which was obtained by the Newsday publication, notes that Ric Flair found his son, Reid, in Reid's hotel room on Friday morning. Flair contacted the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department at 10:35 a.m. after contacting hotel staff, which sent police to the room prior to Flair's phone call. A medic then pronounced Reid dead at 10:40 a.m.

Ric and Reid were scheduled to appear at a Big Time Wrestling show Friday night in Maryland.

The "time of incident" is listed from 1:30 a.m. to 10:35 a.m., which provides a wide window for when Reid may have been "incapacitated" before Ric found him. As we reported on Friday, the initial belief is that Reid died of an overdose.

Newsday reports that they reached Ric Flair by phone on Monday, but his agent, Melinda Morris Zanoni of Legacy Talent and Entertainment, said they would not discuss the police report at that time.

Police are deferring to the medical examiner's office to find the official cause of death, which will be released at a later time.

The family is holding a funeral at Forest Hill Church in Charlotte on Wednesday. The funeral is only open to family and friends.
