David Hasselhoff Passed Out Drunk Again – Rushed to Hospital

May 3, 2009

(ChattahBox)—RadarOnline is reporting former Baywatch star, 57-year-old David Hasselhoff suffered another episode of alcohol poisoning on Saturday, requiring an emergency rush to the hospital at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical center. His 16-year-old daughter Hayley discovered her dad passed out drunk on the floor of his home in Encino, California and frantically phoned her mother and Hasselhoff’s ex-wife actress Pamela Bach, for help.

RadarOnline reported young Hayley repeatedly slapped her dad’s face to waken him, as her mom drove Hasselhoff to the emergency room. Hasselhoff arrived at the hospital in very poor condition, barely able to breathe, with a deadly .39. alcohol level. This latest hospital stay marks just the latest in nearly a dozen drunken binges over the last few years, leading to severe alcohol poisoning requiring hospital treatment.

Hasselhoff has reportedly battled with alcoholism for years. Just two years ago during the month of December, he checked himself into the hospital for alcohol poisoning twice in three days. Hasselhoff has full custody of his two teenage daughters, Hayley, 16 and Taylor, 18 and is helping them launch a singing career.

Hasselhoff is currently appearing as a judge on the NBC show, “America’s Got Talent,” with new episodes due out this summer. The program’s website features a forum entitled, “Ask the Hoff” where fans of the show can ask Hasselhoff questions, and perhaps be one of the lucky ones to have their question answered by the “Hoff” via video.

Hasselhoff has enjoyed a long and lucrative television and singing career, starting with the popular “Knight Rider” to the iconic and wildly popular TV series “Baywatch” and its spinoff, “Baywatch Nights.”

RadarOnline reported Hasselhoff may have been admitted to the hospital for alcohol related treatment at least 10 times over the last few years, with many stays unreported.

Alcohol poisoning can be deadly, by depressing nerves that control involuntary actions such as breathing and the gag reflex. A fatal dose of alcohol from binge drinking can eventually stop a person’s breathing, leading to death.

Hasseloff is said to be recovering in the hospital with his family by his side.  Word from Hasselhoff’s rep. is this latest incident is greatly exagerated and an attempt by his ex to make him look bad.

    At least he doesn’t do dangerous drugs like cannabis.
