Jackass Star Hospitalized in Mental Ward

Steve-O is back in the news today, as the Jackass star is being hospitalized in the mental health ward of Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

TMZ.com says that he has also been charged with cocaine possession, stemming from his arrest on March 3, when he wrecked his own apartment.

According to Star, Steve is in a bad way. He was reportedly admitted to the hospital on Sunday, where he was put on a 72-hour hold, and which has since been extended to 14 days.

"Steve is stabilized on meds at this point," the source told the mag. "He was also treated for burns on his skin as if he had been putting cigarettes out on his own body."

Not unheard of for this dude -- isn't that what he does for a living?

Yes, but sources close to the prankster say that he's been spiraling downhill, with it all coming to head this past weekend. Steve allegedly sent suicide emails to various friends, who then took him for help, and watched as he went nuts at the hospital.

"Steve started flipping out", a witness said. "He told doctors he wanted to hurt himself badly. He wanted to break every bone in his body one by one."

Not that we ever thought he was stable, but this sounds like it's gotten out of hand. Hope he gets the help he needs.
