Gary Coleman

Rushed to Hospital

1/6/2010 2:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gary ColemanGary Coleman was taken to the hospital early this morning, TMZ has learned.

We're told Coleman was transported at 8:03 AM from Custom Hotel in Los Angeles where he was staying.

His rep is still trying to confirm what happened -- but people who were with Coleman told the rep there were signs of a seizure.

Coleman was in Los Angeles doing interviews to promote a something called "Midgets vs. Mascots." He did several interviews before being taken to the hospital.

UPDATE -- A friend of Coleman's who was with him this morning tells TMZ that Coleman was sitting on the bed when he went into what the friend said "looked like a seizure." Coleman came around and 911 was called.

Coleman was asked simple questions like "What month is it?" and whether or not he knew the name of anyone in the room -- Coleman was "foggy" and did not know the answers.

If the Gary Coleman incident on television proved one thing, it proved that it's now Open Season on Celebrities here in Hollywood.

...Sean Penn, the Calabasas incident, Gary Coleman ...

There's big money in baiting celebs, especially the ones that promise to react/get upset.

It was a no brainer that getting in Gary Coleman's face would provoke the dude, (this plan/course of action) no doubt set up in advance and at a production meeting.

"Keep hammering away, accuse him of beating his wife, anything.."

There's probably a bonus if celebs react.

Stallone, Dustin Hoffman, many of the others, have the best response, i.e. laugh.

"Sure, whatever you say, ha ha ha, have a good one (slam)..."

LOL. I suppose now that it's been 30 years, Gary... this would be a good time to admit that one of my east coast buddies stole your name plate off your parking spot in that underground garage.


I overheard you ordering the new one the next day and I felt like turning my buddy over to your dad... :-O
