(Newser) – An apparently drunken David Hasselhoff was rushed to a California hospital by ambulance last night after his worried daughter called her mom, reports TMZ. Haley Hasselhoff, 17, was staying with her dad at his Encino home. Her mom, Pamela Bach, arranged for paramedics to collect the inebriated actor. The former star of Baywatch and Knight Rider has a history of battling alcoholism and was last hospitalized for alcohol poisoning in spring.
