Kanye West reportedly suffered a “psychiatric emergency” on Monday night.
The rapper was rushed to the hospital via ambulance after police were called at 1:20 p.m. PT. According to TMZ, West was at the home of his trainer, Harley Pasternak, just before he was taken to the hospital. Someone reportedly called the police to report that West was “acting erratically.”
The tabloid reported that by the time paramedics arrived, West was calmer but was convinced to go to the hospital for treatment. He was handcuffed to the gurney, which is standard protocol, during transportation.
In the newly released audio, the fire department dispatcher calls West’s incident a “psychiatric emergency.”
West was reportedly taken to UCLA Medical Center for a psychiatric evaluation.
