Verne Troyer is currently being cared for after an alleged incident at his home on Monday night.
According to multiple reports, that police were called out to the 49-year-old actor’s home after being told that he was “suicidal.”
TMZ reports that, according to law enforcement sources, Troyer’s friend called in saying that the Austin Powers star was “extremely upset, drunk and suicidal.” He was then transported to the hospital to be treated for possible alcohol poisoning.
The Blast adds that Troyer has been placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold or a 5150 hold, which is used on patients deemed to be a threat to themselves.
Troyer’s team took to his personal Instagram account to update fans on Tuesday, writing: “Asking you to keep Verne in your thoughts and prayers. He’s getting the best care possible and is resting comfortably. Appreciate the support from family, friends, and fans around the world. We will keep you updated here.”
"I've been hearing from some concerned fans, so I'd like to address a very personal situation," he wrote. "As you know, I've battled alcohol addiction in the past and while it's not always been an easy fight, I'm willing to continue my fight day by day."
"I've been receiving treatment for the last week and I am voluntarily checking into a treatment center later this week to continue to get the help that I need," the message continued. "I want to thank everyone that's reached out with their messages of support, it truly means the world to me. With your support, I got this."
Troyer is perhaps best known for portraying Mini-Me in the 1999 movie Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.
