Nick Stahl

Placed on 5150

Taken to Hospital

6/18/2013 12:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0618_nick_stahl_tmzSad news for "Terminator 3" star Nick Stahl -- TMZ has learned, the actor was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold last night after being taken to an L.A. hospital.

Sources tell us, Stahl -- who has long struggled with drugs, alcohol, and other personal issues -- was transported to the medical facility around 3:30 AM this morning by a friend ... it's unclear why.

Details about circumstances of the psychiatric hold are also unclear.

It's a huge bummer ... we spoke to Stahl just last month, and he told us he was finally focused on turning his life around.

This is sad! I really like him for some reason, seems like a nice person. Hopefully he's able to get himself together.

Sad, I agree with another commenter, if they can do this for nick why can't they put Amanda on a 5150?, rooting for nick. Hope he comes out on top.

Hope Nick is able to turn things around and get well. He's a good actor. Loved him in HBO's 'Carnivale'.

That is sad.. You would think after the death of his friend and co-star in the movie "Bully"---he'd want to stay far away from drugs. Brad's life had such a sad ending, especially the last few years of his life.


Hopefully Nick gets it together .. He has a child to take care of..


Very sad story.

Its the T1000 Loser remover -
The terminator has come back and this time has set up both the John Connors - first he set up Ed and now Nick.
Don’t you all get it the Terminator is setting up all the past Connors by stopping from getting anymore Hollywood roles and then having them accused of crazy things – it’s just like when John Connors mother was put in a psyche ward.
SOB - It’s happening again!
You just can’t beat the terminators…..

it is probably drug related. a lot of times when people are on meth, they come to the ER and are put on a psych hold because they appear psychotic. even if its more of a drug issue, they can still be psych hospitalized because theyre gravely disabled. and if theyre hallucinating from meth, a lot of detox places wont take him and will say its a mental health issue.

Luv ya Nick, hope you work things out. You are such an amazing actor and we dont want to lose ya!! Get the hell out of LA - or California, for that matter and go someplace where drugs are not shoved in your face. Go somewhere that feeds your soul and just relax. All the best to you, baby.
