David Hasselhoff Reported To Be Under Psychiatric Hold

Authorities may have finally stepped in to save David Hasselhoff from himself with a new report claiming that the fallen star has been detained under a involuntary 72 hour psychiatric hold.

Radar Online claims that Hasselhoff was “picked up under the California Welfare and Institutions Code 5150 that allows authorities to take into custody persons they believe may be a danger to themselves or others, are gravely disabled or suffer from a mental disorder.”

The order follows Hasselhoff ending up in hospital Friday morning after passing out following yet another drinking session. The admission to hospital, as we noted at the time, was the third time Hasselhoff had been admitted to hospital this year following a drinking session.
