Steve-O On Suicide Watch, Facing Felony
Steve-O is reportedly currently at the Los Angeles Cedars-Sinai Medical center under suicide watch, according to Star magazine and has also been charged with felony possession of cocaine stemming from his March 3rd arrest, according to TMZ.
The Jackass star went to the emergency room last Sunday afternoon and was admitted to the Thalians Mental Health center at Cedars, where his 72-watch has been extended to fourteen days, due to concern for his well-being.
Star magazine is reporting that he suffers from an “untreatable bipolar disorder,” with a source saying that Steve is “very manic” at this point in time and that, “He was also treated for burns on his skin as if he had been putting cigarettes out on his own body.” Over the weekend, Steve e-mailed suicide notes to a number of friends, prompting a friend of his and his bodyguard to take him to the emergency room.
According to an insider at the hospital, “Steve started flipping out. He told doctors he wanted to hurt himself badly. He wanted to break every bone in his body one by one.” Not to sound insensitive, but hasn’t he done that already?
