Tracy Morgan Hospitalized After Collapsing at Sundance Film Festival

Though some witnesses said he "seemed inebriated," the 30 Rock star's rep says exhaustion and altitude are to blame

Tracy Morgan was hospitalized Sunday night after collapsing at a Sundance Film Festival event in Park City, Utah.

The 30 Rock funnyman, 43, fell unconscious at the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards dinner, where he received the Spotlight Initiative Award, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Attendants at the awards dinner said that "Morgan seemed inebriated, yelling and falling onto the ground."

After his fall, Morgan (who was at Sundance promoting his upcoming Predisposed) was rushed to Park City Medical Center. The hospital's spokeswoman Amy Roberts said no drugs or alcohol were found in his system.

Despite the eyewitness claims to the contrary, Morgan's rep denies that he was drinking and says altitude sickness and exhaustion are to blame.

"From a combination of exhaustion and altitude, Tracy is seeking medical attention. He is with his fiancee and grateful to the Park City Medical Center for their care. Any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100 percent false," the actor's rep said in a statement. Morgan's current status has yet to be reported.

This isn't the first time the Saturday Night Live veteran, who has diabetes, has been hospitalized. He underwent a kidney transplant in December 2010.
