(Newser) – Though it probably depends on your definition of “normal,” David Hasselhoff “is totally normal,” his lawyer tells E!, claiming the Hoff’s hospitalization Sunday wasn’t due to substance abuse. A bad combination of drugs—one for an ear infection and one that helps keep alcoholics from drinking—made him dizzy, his rep says, and he “was released almost immediately after he arrived at the hospital,” his lawyer adds.
