Mischa Barton Voluntarily Hospitalized for Mental Evaluation After Incident at Her Home

Actress Mischa Barton has been hospitalized for mental evaluation after a police call-out to her West Hollywood apartment.

The OC star, Mischa Barton, has been rushed to hospital for mental evaluation says reports.

According to People the actress was hospitalized Thursday morning (US time) after police received several calls about a disturbance at her apartment.

Sergeant Duncan of West Hollywood Sheriff’s Department reportedly said Barton was “fully clothed” and “speaking in coherent statements.”

Officers were called around 7:15 a.m. Thursday about a disturbance at Barton’s apartment.

In 2009, Barton was committed to a psych ward for four days under California’s 5150 hold, by which a person “as a result of a mental health disorder, is a danger to others, or to himself or herself, or gravely disabled,” is placed in a facility for evaluation and treatment for up to 72 hours, according to California law. She told People magazine of the incident that she had “a full-on breakdown.”

Barton’s representative has not responded to People’s request for comment.

We wish Mischa Barton the best in what must be a very scary time for her.
