On January 4, 2008 Britney Spears was carried out of her home following a dispute involving her children.
When police arrived, they found Spears locked in her bathroom alongside her two children, refusing to relinquish custody to her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, and under the influence of an illicit substance. After three hours, she finally handed over her children, was carried out via stretcher, and sent to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The next day, at an emergency hearing, Kevin Federaline was granted sole custody, with Spears being placed in an involuntary 5150 psychiatric hold within the psychiatric ward of Ronald Regan UCLA Medical Center. As a result, she was placed under a permanent conservatorship of her father, James Spears.
