Report: David Hasselhoff Hospitalized for Alcohol Poisoning

By: Celebuzz / May 3, 2009

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:
