David Hasselhoff's Daughter Says Dad was Drunk

9/21/2009 9:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David HasselhoffTMZ has learned David Hasselhoff was taken to the hospital Sunday night after his daughter sounded an alarm that he had been drinking to excess.

We've learned 17-year-old Hayley Hasselhoff -- who was at home with David -- called her mother Pamela, claiming David was extremely drunk. One of Pamela's friends called 911, paramedics arrived at the family's home in Encino and took him to the hospital.

We're told the hospital was supposed to release David Sunday night.

No comment yet from Hasselhoff's reps.

Gram - it's not Hollywood, it's alcoholism. Many people have it, but they choose not to acknowledge it and confront it headon. He is like Lindsay Lohan. They think they have it under control. How many times have each of them been out of control drunk, in a hospital, wrapped around a tree, fired from a job or in rehab? Sheesh, you would think they would learn by now. They can't handle alcohol. It's just that simple.

I agree. These addicts are so self centered and selfish, their poor kids seeing all this, like Jacko's did. What a jerk that he doesn't get it together for THEIR sake.

His daughters sure drew the short straw when they were handing out parents. And to think David was the one who got custody. A 17 year old should not have this kind of responsibility for her father.

You obviously do not understand the disease of alcoholism. Until the addict/alcoholic hits a personal bottom -- and it's different for everyone -- intervention/rehab will not help. The desire to recover must be one of total desperation and willingness to do anything to get better. Outside influences, whether they be children, financial, moral or otherwise factor in very little. It is sad but true. The statistics should make that obvious.

And I would like to state for the ignorant: Alcoholism is NOT a moral issue.

Was he drunk because he drunk? To that, I'll drink until I've drunk myself drunk.

Sink, sank, sunk, stink, stank, stunk, drink, drank, drunk, think, thank, thunk?

I'm thinking I am drinking, but I was drunk - or so I thunk!

I think it is fun to be drinking for one. Be more fun, it is true, to be drinking for two!

Why does he still have his kids? Because of his money and power. Even after the video of him drunk and crawling on the floor, trying to eat a hamburger, HE still got custody.
