Suicidal Steve-O Goes Off To The Psych Ward

After more than a decade of self mutilation and non -stop partying, Poor Steve-O has finally landed himself in the nut bin, Britney's old stomping grounds. Psych wards are where it's at, and it started with him e-mailing a suicide note to friends. Even Heather Locklear is trying to get in on the action. Kids, those drugs will catch up to you sooner or later, they always do. He was taken to the emergency room on Sunday afternoon. After drug tests, he was checked into the Thalians Mental Health Center — known for doing crisis intervention — where he was put on a 72-hour hold. That has since been extended to 14 days, Star has learned. “Steve is stabilized on meds at this point,” the source told Star. “He was also treated for burns on his skin as if he had been putting cigarettes out on his own body.”

Friends and family have become increasingly concerned about the star’s mental state, especially following his March 3 arrest following a dispute with a neighbor. Days after, a close family member told Star that Steve-O — real name Stephen Glover — suffers from untreated bipolar disorder. “Right now he’s in his extreme mania,” the family member said. It seems to me he has been in an "extreme manic state" for years now. But the situation escalated over the weekend when Steve-O, 33, e-mailed suicide notes to several friends, blaming a broken romance. Eventually a woman friend and his bodyguard took him to the hospital around 2pm on Sunday. But he caused a major scene in the hospital, says one insider. “Steve started flipping out. He told doctors he wanted to hurt himself badly. He wanted to break every bone in his body one by one.” (Hasn't he already done that more than once?)
