TMZ Sports has obtained the 911 call Tim Donaghy made while trying to bring his daughter home in Manatee County, Florida … featuring 2 full minutes of hammer-wielding chaos.
The ex-NBA ref tells the dispatcher he’s on a mission to save his daughter … who he claims is being held against her will at a house with marijuana and is “stoned out of her mind.”
Donaghy describes the scene as hostile, saying the parents at the house are screaming and yelling at him. He warns … “There’s about to be a major altercation.”
That’s when Tim reveals he’s got a hammer on him and is ready to throw down … or as he puts it, “If anyone comes near me, I will crack him right in his f*cking head.”
Donaghy tells the 911 operator it’s too dark to describe the people involved, but is adamant he needs help quickly … before things go south.
We broke the story … Donaghy — who went to prison for trying to fix games he officiated — was arrested for threatening a man with the hammer, but insists the tool was for protection and he was just trying to be a good dad and save his daughter.
