All the shock­ing de­tails of Scott Disick’s in­vol­un­tary psy­chi­atric hold at an LA hospi­tal.

Is this rock bot­tom? On Aug. 18, fire­fight­ers were dis­patched to Scott Disick’s home in LA’S Hid­den Hills neigh­bor­hood af­ter Scott’s se­cu­rity guard grew wor­ried about his be­hav­ior and called 911. “He was vi­o­lent, so we re­quested backup as­sis­tance,” LA County Fire Fighter Spe­cial­ist Richard Li­con re­veals to Life & Style.

Scott, 34, was re­moved from his home on a stretcher and taken to a lo­cal hospi­tal, where he was placed on an in­vol­un­tary psy­chi­atric hold. Cal­i­for­nia law states that a per­son can be placed on the hold — known as a 5150 — for up to 72 hours if he poses a threat to him­self or oth­ers, and an in­sider says that was def­i­nitely the case for Scott. “He was com­pletely out of it, and it was bad,” says the in­sider. “This was un­like any other sit­u­a­tion any­one has seen with Scott be­fore. He wasn’t mak­ing any sense when he spoke and there was a fear that he was go­ing to do some­thing dan­ger­ous.”

The Kar­dashian clan has ex­pe­ri­ence with psych holds: In Novem­ber 2016, Kanye West, 40, was placed on one at UCLA Med­i­cal Cen­ter af­ter suf­fer­ing a break­down. And while Scott was in the hospi­tal, his wor­ried ex Kourt­ney Kar­dashian, 38, rushed to his side. “She wants him to be OK for the kids’ sake,” the in­sider says, “and she plans to do what­ever she can to help him.”

She’s got a lot of work to do be­cause Scott has been to re­hab twice and also has used co­caine on a reg­u­lar ba­sis, ac­cord­ing to his for­mer man­ager. Ear­lier this sum­mer, though, as Life & Style re­ported, Kourt­ney gave Scott an ul­ti­ma­tum that he sober up or stop see­ing their kids, Ma­son, 7, Pene­lope, 5, and Reign, 2. Will she re­in­state the ul­ti­ma­tum? It’s pos­si­ble, be­cause Scott hasn’t changed. On Sept. 1, less than two weeks af­ter his re­lease from the psy­chi­atric hold, he was spot­ted par­ty­ing at Mar­quee in­side The Cos­mopoli­tan of Las Ve­gas be­fore jet­ting to NYC just in time for Fash­ion Week — and all the late-night par­ties that come with it.

Af­ter years of abus­ing drugs and al­co­hol, Scott was hos­pi­tal­ized in Au­gust. But he isn’t show­ing any signs of slow­ing down, much to Kourt­ney’s hor­ror. “Friends and fam­ily fear he’s headed for an over­dose,” says a source.
