Kanye West reportedly attempted to assault one of his gym's staff members.
After reporting earlier today that Kanye West was experiencing a "psychiatric emergency" at the time of his hospitalization, more information has leaked as to what that entailed. According to TMZ, Kanye's physician Dr. Farzam reported that at the time West was hospitalized, Kanye attempted to assault a staff member at the gym where he was working out. Because of this, the doctor apparently told police to place Kanye on a 5150 psychiatric. It is usual protocol for a person placed on a 5150 to be handcuffed to their stretcher.
According to law enforcement, Dr. Farzam said his patient Kanye's name was ""Jim Jones, 39 years old, 5'8", 175 lbs ... suffers from temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration."
