BRITNEY SPEARS was taken from her home by ambulance early THURSDAY (1/31) and escorted to the hospital by more than a dozen police officers. A LOS ANGELES police officer, who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on the matter, said the 26-year-old pop star was being taken to "get help" but did not give the ambulance's destination.
THE LOS ANGELES TIMES cited unnamed authorities who said SPEARS was being placed on a "mental evaluation hold." The TIMES said SPEARS was taken to UCLA MEDICAL CENTER. CENTER spokesman MARK WHEELER declined to comment THURSDAY, citing privacy laws.
SPEARS' police escort included motorcycles, two cruisers, and two helicopters.
On JANUARY 3rd, police were called to her home when she refused to return her two young sons, SEAN PRESTON, 2, and JAYDEN JAMES, 1, to ex-husband KEVIN FEDERLINE, who has custody.
