THE TRUTH BE­HIND SCOTT’S PSYCH HOLD

In Touch (USA) - - In The Know -

Scott Disick was a mess. On Aug. 18, af­ter re­ceiv­ing a 911 call from the re­al­ity star’s se­cu­rity guard, fire­fight­ers were dis­patched to Scott’s home in LA’S Hid­den Hills neigh­bor­hood. “He was vi­o­lent, so we re­quested backup as­sis­tance,” LA County Fire Fighter Spe­cial­ist Richard Li­con tells In Touch. Scott, 34, “was com­pletely out of it, and it was bad,” adds an in­sider. “This was un­like any other sit­u­a­tion any­one has seen with Scott be­fore. He wasn’t mak­ing any sense when he was talk­ing, and there was a fear that he was go­ing to do some­thing un­safe.” Scott was re­moved from his home on a stretcher and taken to a lo­cal hos­pi­tal, where he was placed on an in­vol­un­tary psy­chi­atric hold, known as a 5150. (In Cal­i­for­nia, a per­son can be placed on the hold for up to 72 hours if he poses a threat to him­self or oth­ers.) When he was re­leased, Scott — who has strug­gled with drug and al­co­hol abuse for years — seemed “fine,” says the in­sider. But Scott hasn’t learned his les­son. Less than two weeks later, he was spied par­ty­ing at Mar­quee night­club at The Cos­mopoli­tan in Las Ve­gas be­fore jet­ting to NYC ahead of New York Fash­ion Week. His ex Kourt­ney Kar­dashian, 38, is wor­ried. “She wants him to be OK for the sake of their kids [Mason, 7, Pene­lope, 5, and Reign, 2],” says the in­sider, adding that while Scott was in the hos­pi­tal, Kourt rushed to be by his side. “She plans to do what­ever she can to help him.”

“Scott can’t con­tinue to live like this,” says a source.
