Kanye West was hospitalized on Monday after suffering a reported psychotic breakdown and now the corresponding Fire Department dispatch calls have surfaced, according to the latest report. According to reports, West began acting erratically while at a Los Angeles gym with his trainer, Harley Pasternak.
According to law enforcement sources, the call came in as a male with mental illness. Dr. Michael Farzam said his patient’s name was “Jim Jones, 39 years old, 5’8″, 175 lbs … suffers from temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration.”
According to the police report, Dr. Farzam told police he had placed Kanye on a 5150 psychiatric hold and wanted him taken to UCLA Medical Center, but TMZ notes that there’s an issue over whether the doctor actually placed Kanye on a 5150.
The report goes on to say Dr. Farzam told police Kanye had attempted to assault a staff member at the gym.
According to TMZ, Kanye was handcuffed to the stretcher because it’s protocol when cops are told someone is on a 5150 hold.
Kanye West was reportedly handcuffed to a stretcher before paramedics took him to UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation.
