Hasselfhoff Released From Rehab

DAVID HASSELHOFF was admitted to a rehabilitation centre in the U.K. earlier this week (begs05Oct09) after he accidentally hit a doctor during a drinking binge, according to reports.
The Baywatch star had allegedly been boozing for days in his suite at London's St. Martins Lane Hotel, prompting his assistant to call for medical help.
Hasselhoff was livid to discover that Doctor Paul Ettlinger had been called and hit out - accidentally striking the physician, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.
A source tells the publication, "David is very hard to handle when he drinks, often very emotional and aggressive. On this occasion he became so drunk he wet his hotel bed - ruining two mattresses - and was becoming a real pain for staff.
"His assistant Joe Townley was so concerned he called out a doctor. David was furious and lashed out at him - but mistakenly hit the doctor."
Ettlinger then called an ambulance for the star, who was taken to the U.K. capital's Capio Nightingale Hospital - a private psychiatric facility - where he reportedly spent two nights before he was allowed to check out on Thursday (08Oct09).
A patient at the facility says, "He was recognised immediately. Everyone was thrilled The Hoff had arrived and wanted to meet him.
"But the nurses were anxious to make sure he had a quiet time to recover and were telling him he needed vitamins and iron to build himself up."
Hasselhoff has already been hospitalised on two separate occasions this year (09), when he was reportedly suffering from alcohol poisoning.
