Amy Roberts, a spokeswoman for Park City Medical Center, tells TMZ no drugs or alcohol were found in Tracy's system upon medical evaluation.

Morgan's rep, Lewis Kay, also released a statement saying, "From a combination of exhaustion and altitude, Tracy is seeking medical attention."

Kay adds, "He is with his fiancée and grateful to the Park City Medical Center for their care. Any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100% false."

9:50 AM PT: Tracy just tweeted, claiming the high altitude was responsible for his 911 emergency last night -- "Superman ran into a little kryptonite. The high altitude in Utah shook up this kid from Brooklyn."

I saw Morgan perform in San Francisco and it was the most outrageous standup show I've ever seen, as he spoke repeatedly about raping his wife. Of course it's in the context of comedy, but it was still remarkable to see how it was compulsive, as if he couldn't stop himself from talking about it, particularly as he sensed the disapproval of the crowd. No matter what, he's always been fascinating to watch.

Can't stand the guy. He's an A-level doucher and the worst part of 30 Rock. Please send him to rehab and keep him there.

Here I thought he had asphyxiated himself from keeping his head up his a** for so frequent and prolonged periods. But no, just another drunken loser.

At least he is consistent on the 'loser' part.
