Britney Spears Hospitalized for the First Time in Weeks

For Britney Spears, January started with a visit to the hospital for a mental evaluation, and was subsequently put on suicide watch. So what better way to end the month than, well, replaying the entire thing?

Last night, Britney's new psychiatrist went to her home and felt she was a danger to herself and others -- partly because of her reckless driving and partly because of her "downhill behavior." As a result, the shrink launched a plan (days in the making) to have Britney committed to UCLA Medical Center by calling the cops...

Last night, it all went down according to plan. Cops even used code to minimize craziness in transporting Britney to the hospital. Over the police radio, she was referred to as "The Package."

Before the cops arrived, the shrink told her she was going back to the hospital and she offered no resistance. She said, "Is something wrong?" She made hot chocolate and waited. Her mom, Lynne, got extremely agitated, accusing Sam of engineering the impending commitment. We're told Brit told her to "shut the hell up." She demanded silence, sat on the floor and wrote notes to people who were there as they waited. When emergency personnel arrived, Brit went on the gurney without resistance.
Other relevant info:
During the initial 72-hour stay she cannot be forced to take medication against her will. If, however, she refuses to take the meds, the plan is for the psychiatrist to go to court and have Britney held for an additional 14 days, during which time he could administer proper medications.
I think I'm just gonna copy and store this story so it's ready to be posted again mid-Februrary.

Sort of makes you reconsider the lyrics "You drive me crazy
I just can’t sleep
I’m so excited, I’m in too deep," doesn't it?
