Mischa Barton committed to psych ward

The Superficial / July 16, 2009

Mischa Barton was placed on involuntary psychiatric hold at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center yesterday, according to People:

On Wednesday, Barton called police at 3 p.m. with a health problem, LAPD Officer April Harding confirmed to PEOPLE. “We assisted her with a medical issue and removed her from her home,” says Harding. She adds that no paramedics were involved and no arrests were made, but confidentiality laws prevent her from revealing details about Barton’s condition.
The star’s rep, Craig Schneider, tells PEOPLE that police were only needed to protect the former O.C. star from the media as she was transported to her doctor.

Jesus. I wonder what made her snap. I mean, besides looking in the mirror and realizing “Holy shit, I’m Mischa Barton! NOOOO!”
