Mischa Barton under "psychiatric care"

Mischa Barton has missed the premiere of her movie Homecoming after reportedly being placed under psychiatric care. According to Access Hollywood, the London-born actress was detained involuntarily by Los Angeles police and transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre.
A spokesman for the star told People magazine that she was missing the showing of her new film as a result of a medical situation.
The rep added: “Mischa has been hospitalised as per the recommendation of her doctor and is resting in the hospital.”
He declined to comment on the reports of her being taken to a psychiatric ward.
It has been suggested that Mischa is being held under a 5150 code.
Under the order, authorities can hold a person involuntarily if they pose a risk to themselves or others.
In January 2008, Britney Spears was held under the order.
