Britney Spears Back in the Hospital: There She Goes Again

Troubled pop star Britney Spears was taken from her home to a hospital early Thursday morning and placed on what authorities termed a "mental health evaluation hold," according to the Los Angeles Times.

This is the second time in a month that Spears was removed from her home and brought to a hospital for mental-health reasons. ABC News reported that terms such as "Britney unconscious" and "suicide attempt" were heard during the discussions, though it's not clear who said them and whether they wre just speculation on the part of officers or paramedics.

The Spears removal was apparently sparked by a call from her psychiatrist. The entourage removing Spears included an L.A. fire department ambulance as well as more than a dozen motorcycle cops, and it's said the entire escort stretched longer than a football field.

Spears was said to be taken to UCLA Medical Center and a judge signed an order to put her on a 5150 hold, which allows her to be held for three days for evaluation.
