Britney Spears sectioned


The 'Toxic' singer, who was removed from her home and taken to Los Angeles' UCLA Medical Center by ambulance at 4am this morning (31.01.08), has been placed on a 5150 hold - a piece of US legislation which means she poses a danger to herself and others.

It is claimed the intervention was planned for days and was finally executed when Britney's condition deteriorated after she went without sleep since Saturday (26.01.08).

One source told gossip website "When she was taken away she was non-responsive about the whole thing - out of it. She wasn't resistant, she was saying, 'Is something wrong?'

"She made hot chocolate and waited for paramedics to place her on a gurney."

The 26-year-old star was reportedly committed after her psychiatrist contacted the North Hollywood division of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and warned them "something must be done".

The psychiatrist, who visited Britney last night (30.01.08), was said to be concerned by the star's erratic driving in her new Mercedes and "downhill behaviour" and recommended hospitalisation.
