Verne Troyer Hospitalized on an Involuntary Psychiatric Hold

By TheBlast Staff

Verne Troyer was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold on Monday night, The Blast can confirm.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, authorities responded to a call at Troyer's home in North Hollywood last night. A psychiatric evaluation was done and Troyer was transported to a local hospital and placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold.

A 5150 hold (as it is more commonly known) is typically instituted when a patient is deemed to be "a danger to themselves or others."

The Los Angeles City Fire Department said the call was for a "poisoning" but would not confirm it was alcohol-related.

The "Austin Powers" star does have a long history of alcohol problems and has done several stints in rehab.

Verne's team released a statement saying that he is "getting the best care possible and is resting comfortably."
