Britney Wheeled Out on a Gurney!!

1/4/2008 12:38 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

OMG THE DRAMA! TMZ is there as Britney Spears was just wheeled out of her home on a gurney by paramedics. Look at that shot of her inside the ambulance -- she's frickin' smiling! Why God, why?!?

Once in the ambulance, paramedics can be seen trying to strap her legs down before taking off.

Britney Spears: Click to watchWe're told Britney is being taken to a local hospital on a "medical hold" -- essentially a mental evaluation. Cops found her earlier this evening at her home under the influence of an "unknown substance."

Cops were called to the popnightmare's home in Beverly Hills this evening, after she reportedly refused to return custody of her two kids to their father's bodyguard. Oh, the insanity of it all!

UPDATE: Britney has arrived at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. We're told as she was brought out of the ambulance, she flipped off the waiting paparazzi. Oh my God. That Britney's shameless!

Keep refreshing for updates!

this is classic! the only reason why she's acting like this is b/c she figures that she's old enough to do so. she's paid her dues, now she wants to be in charge. too bad NO ONE prepared her for adulthood and what all it entails. and the fact that since the enception of the women's movement, family court has dealt FULL and even PARTIAL custody to mom's, she thinks she can do whatever she wants and no one can tell her otherwise. the CA family court needs to get with it. take those kids from her and give them to their father TIL FURTHER NOTICE! she needs to go to rehab/detox/the psych ward ASAP and stay there for as long as it takes. just b/c she's famous does NOT mean we need to be treating her with kid gloves. this is SERIOUS and since the world gets to see it, it's about high time those that can do something for her, DO IT! her kids' lives and her's are at stake here! if not for her, then do it for the kids! they didn't ask for this and they totally deserve better!

TMZ and all the bored people with no IQ that look to you for moral guidance - you are the worst thing in society today.
Poor girl - she won't make it and none of you will wonder why.

Again ...I am a psychiatrist and would not hesitate to diagnose Axis I Bipolar type I with paranoid psychotic features and/ or Paranoid Schizophrenic (need a complete eval). Axis II: Borderline Personality - no question! This girl needs an involuntary psych admission, through evaluation and the right meds... including birth control.
*** So glad she was taken on a 72 hour hold***

She's boring    

The thing is that she was erratic and without sense before she had the kids so I dont think its "post partum depression". Maybe its prepartum depression over her loser sister's pregnacy and knowing Nickelodeon had the good sense to cancel Zoey 101.
Let them all fade away

Party 'till you die!    

I am only surprised it took this long! She had to literally be dragged ( wheeled in) to get there, but how else did anyone really think it would happen! Bet if she's not in lock down, she'll try to leave a.s.a.p.! WOW!!!!!!!!

What a surprise. If anyone needs prayers it's her kids. What does it take to realize you're completely out of control? Thank God for Kevin Federline who seems to be a much better parent than Britney or Britney's OWN mother for that matter. She's certainly raised a couple of LOSERS hasn't she? All the money and all the fame in the world doesn't guarantee a happy existance.
