Quite the Thanksgiving weekend for the Hoff and his former wife.
David Hasselhoff is under involuntary psychiatric hold at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. after suffering a seizure apparently spurred by a days-long bender.
Post-seizure, Hoff was hospitalized on Friday and placed on psychiatric hold under the California Welfare Institutions Code 5150, a.k.a. the Britney Spears hold.
This is only reserved for subjects considered to be a danger to themselves or others. In other words, it’s not easy to pull on someone and it’s not taken lightly.
Hoff will be held up to 72 hours and will undergo psychiatric observation.
The incident marks the latest slip in Hasselhoff’s long battle with alcohol. There are many recent examples, such as him being bombed at the EMAs this month.
Pamela Bach didn’t want David Hasselhoff to have all the fun.
David Hasslehoff’s alcohol problems are well documented, but meanwhile, his ex-wife, Pamela Bach, had her own issues last night – she was arrested for DUI.
According to law enforcement sources, Bach took a breathalyzer test and blew a .14 and a .13. The limit is .08. She was taken in, booked and released.
“I am remorseful and mortified,” Pamela said later, adding that the Hoff’s most recent meltdown played a role in her DUI. “I am going through a really difficult time between David being in the hospital and dealing with the divorce.”
Bach added that she was trying to comfort her daughters earlier in the evening, then went to dinner where she had a few drinks. A few, or like 6-7.
She is free on $15,000 bail and said she will attend an AA meeting today. Pamela is due in court on Christmas Eve. Hoff is still under the 5150.
