This week Mischa Barton was hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center under an involuntary psychiatric hold (also known as a 5150) by the Los Angeles Police Department.
Shades of Britney Spears' famous freak-out.
But Mischa's beginning was so promising. How did this happen to a young, beautiful and talented actress?
We got the first hint of her hard-partying ways in May 2007 when she was rushed to the hospital from a Malibu beach party, reportedly for a reaction to cold medicine. Later that year, she was arrested on suspicion of DUI and pot possession and received a fine and three years of unsupervised parole.
Letís look back at Mischa Bartonís fall from grace — here we see her with ex-beau Brandon Davis, a.k.a. Greasy Bear — and try to find more clues to her mysterious meltdown.
