Report: David Hasselhoff Hospitalized for Alcohol Poisoning-photo

David Hasselhoff apparently didn't have too great of a Saturday night. 

Radar Online reports that the 56-year-old America's Got Talent host and former Baywatch stud was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after his 16-year-old daughter, Hayley, found him passed out on the floor of his Encino, California home.

Hayley called her mother—and the Hoff's ex-wife—Pamela Bach, who rushed to the scene and delivered him to the hospital. According to reports, Hasselhoff registered an alarming .39 (nearly five times the legal driving limit in California).

A source says that Hasselhoff "was barely breathing when they got him at the hospital" and that he's currently "recovering" from the binge.

Hasselfhoff has long struggled with alcohol abuse. In May 2007, video footage taken by Hayley of a seemingly plastered Hoff unsuccessfully trying to eat a cheeseburger was leaked onto the Internet, and appears below:

    He will when he has a good enough reason to. Health, girl, child, lack of money. Everyone does sooner or later - same with smoking.

  • He's lost.
    He's lost.

    He's not going to recover unless he realizes what he has. Success is that way with some people. They work for it, get it, then they have no other real goals so they start doing drugs and drinking. Hollywood success is even worse, because hey, once you get that, where else can you go in life?? It's a pinnacle that once reached, maintaining it is merely a matter of being sober and learning to enjoy what you have. It's as simple as that. Unless he can learn to enjoy what he has, he's going to wind up drinking himself to death.
