    More than a dozen motorcycle officers, two police cruisers and two police helicopters helped escort Britney Spears to the UCLA Medical Center early Thursday morning. According to the Los Angeles Times, Spears was physically removed from her home and placed in an ambulance around 1 a.m. An Associated Press story also quoted an anonymous LA police officer as saying Spears was being transported to simply "get help," the reason being another "5150" call for a mental health evaluation. (TMZ.com claims Spears' psychiatrist ordered her hospitalization this time.)

    Simply put, Spears is currently considered a threat to herself and those around her. The pop star was last placed on a similar 72-hour evaluation period on January 3 after she refused to give up custody of her two children to ex-husband Kevin Federline. Spears lost visitation rights of Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, soon after that hospital visit.
