Mischa Barton Placed Under Involuntary Psychiatric Hold

Mischa Barton was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold, also known as a 5150, by the Los Angeles Police Department and transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center late last evening. Access Hollywood broke the news that authorities had responded to the Los Angeles home of Barton after receiving a non-911 call from her residence around 3pm. A patrol car responded to the scene and began assisting Barton with a “medical issue,” a spokesperson for the LAPD confirmed to Access on Wednesday evening. The source claimed that Barton was placed under Section 5150 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code by police and transported to Cedars-Sinai. According to the code, authorities can hold a person involuntarily if they present a danger to themselves or others, are gravely disabled, or suffer from a mental disorder. Cocaine is a helluva drug.

First Rule of Fight Club: Don’t Be an Idiot

Oh yeah, and don’t talk about Fight Club. This seemingly obvious rule to any other Fight Club fan was lost on 17-year-old Kyle Shaw, who was arrested this week for the bombing of a Starbucks in New York City in May. The Durden-wannabe had a copy of the Fight Club DVD on him at the time, some sparklers, and a copy of the article that reported the bombing. Unfortunately for the police he didn’t have a signed confession on him, though his lack of criminal acumen left very little work for the boys in blue to do. The teen had started a fight club of his own and half-assedly attempted a "Project Mayhem," but his lack of intelligence, talent, and common sense prevented him from becoming more of a social nuisance. Sometimes stupidity is a blessing. [City Room]

Straw Dogs Gets a Remake

Most films don’t really benefit from being remade, and it’s safe to say that Sam Peckinpah’s classic Straw Dogs fits in that category too. James Marsden (holy miscasting, Batman!) is, of all people, taking on the part Dustin Hoffman played as the weak screenwriter returning to Mississippi with his wife (Kate Bosworth). Alexander Skarsgard plays her old high school, football-playing boyfriend who wants to prove something to himself and his ex-girlfriend. Namely, that he can (and will) rape her. Rod Lurie is the man behind this foolishness. If Peckinpah were alive today maybe he’d smack some sense into the hack director. [Collider]

Amy Winehouse Granted Divorce

A judge granted Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil a divorce this morning in London. Neither Winehouse, 25, nor Fielder-Civil, 27, were present in court, but the divorce will become final in six weeks and one day. Fielder-Civil filed for divorce earlier this year, citing infidelity. In court papers made public today, he said living with Winehouse was "intolerable." It's kinda sad these two couldn't patch things up. I always thought crack could bring these ex-lovers back together. [CBC]

Michael Jackson's Global Record Sales Reach 9 Million

Michael Jackson's albums and compilations have locked down the top 10 on the Top Pop Catalog Albums chart in the United States for the past three weeks, selling more than 2.3 million albums since his death, including 1.1 million over the past seven days. According to the Los Angeles Times, an unidentified source with knowledge of sales figures for the catalog said that more than nine million Jackson albums have been sold worldwide since June 25th. Hot damn. Who said the King is dead? [LA Times]

Man Commits Suicide after Learning Harry Potter Spoiler
 
A rabid Harry Potter fan took his life yesterday after inadvertently learning a plot spoiler from the soon-to-be-released J.K. Rowling movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Jude Ralston, 32, of Hudson, Ohio left a suicide note indicating that since overhearing the plot spoiler at a shopping mall earlier in the day, "I no longer have a reason to live." Maybe it was for the best? [The Insider]

San Diego State Cheerleaders Gone Wild

If you're a good looking young female soon to head to college, please keep San Diego State in mind, especially if you're interests include cheerleading and/or partying like a drunken maniac. Not only does this just-north-of-the-border cheering squad show their school spirit on the field, they're also not averse to going a little wild off the field. [Uncoached]
