(Newser) – Disturbing news out of Los Angeles about longtime Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler: The 54-year-old has been hospitalized after stabbing himself, reports TMZ. The good news is that Adler's injuries are non-life-threatening, according to LAPD officer Jeff Lee. People reports that police responded to a possible suicide attempt at a residence in Studio City, California, Thursday night, and it confirms the incident involved a stabbing.

"Upon arrival, LAPD officers determined that there was no crime and the incident was being treated as a medical emergency only,” says Lee. Adler, who TMZ's sources say suffered a stomach wound, has long struggled with substance abuse and was actually kicked out of the group at least two times due to his drug use. (His stints in rehab go back more than a decade.)
