Madsen 'Detained In Hospital' After Nine-day Booze Binge

Troubled actor MICHAEL MADSEN has sparked fresh concerns for his health after he was reportedly hospitalised following a nine-day booze binge in Britain.
The Reservoir Dogs star was staying at the Penventon Park Hotel in Cornwall, England while filming his latest movie, and left staff at the establishment shocked with his wild behaviour.
According to Britain's The Sun, Madsen drank two bottles of wine for breakfast, before embarking on a mammoth boozing and pill-taking session.
He was reportedly taken to the nearby Royal Cornwall Hospital after he was found unconscious at the entrance of the hotel earlier this month (May10). Worried medics registered him as a "high-risk" patient and place him under "suicide watch", according to the newspaper.
A source tells the publication, "He was held under the Common Law rules on mental health. If he had attempted to leave he would have been sectioned. He was a high-risk patient and was on suicide watch."
A worker at the hotel adds, "Staff were shocked by the amount of booze he put away - it was like he was on a non-stop bender. He was mixing his drinks with pills, but no one knew what they were for. He angered some guests by urinating in the car park."
It is believed Madsen was released from hospital earlier this week (begs17May10) and returned to the U.S. on Friday (21May10).
In 2008, Madsen's rep dismissed rumours the star had been put under a mental health hold at a Los Angeles hospital, after relatives grew concerned over his "crazy behaviour". The spokesperson put that incident down to exhaustion and food poisoning.
