According to an incident report, obtained by les-grizzlys-catalans.org, cops were called to the W Hotel in Atlanta early Sunday afternoon, where the body of Kier "Junior" Spates" assistant, Bryan Cooke, had been discovered in his room ... with blood and vomit coming from his nose and mouth.

Spates asked hotel staff to check on Cooke after he didn"t respond to him -- the two "Steve Harvey" employees were supposed to catch a flight to L.A. later that day. When no one answered, staff went in to find Cooke lying face down on his bed, and cold to the touch.

Cops say Spates told them he and Cooke had hit the town the night before, but that Cooke appeared fine upon returning to the hotel. They even smoked cigars together before going to their separate rooms, and Spates said they did not partake in any drugs.

Police note prescription pills were found in Cooke"s room -- but do not disclose the medication. It"s unclear if any pills had been taken or played any role in his death. They also say housekeeping came by to clean Cooke"s room, but thought he was sleeping. He was 39.
