Mischa Barton reportedly hospitalized under psych hold after meltdown

July 16, 2009

(ChattahBox) —  Former “O.C.” star, Mischa Barton has been allegedly placed under involuntary psychiatric hold, according to Access Hollywood. Mischa, 23, called the LAPD yesterday and asked for medical assistance, “Shortly after 3 p.m., a patrol car responded to her home to assist her with medical issues.

The London-born actress was put under Section 5150 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code by police and transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. This code made famous by Britney Spears after her meltdowns gives authorities the power to hold a person if he or she is showing strong signs of instability such as a mental disorder or breakdown.

Barton has a history with drugs and alcohol. In December 2007, Barton was involved in a routine traffic stop that ended in her being arrested on charges of DUI, possession of pot and driving with an invalid license. After pleading ‘no contest’ and making a plea deal she got off with probation.

Before she checked into rehab, Mischa told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, “I don’t ever intend to do something this stupid again.”
