Boardwalk Empire Actor Hospitalized After Being Found Disturbed

Michael Pitt, star of the crime drama “Boardwalk Empire,” was taken into custody and subsequently hospitalized last week after a public outburst in New York City.

A short video clip shows a shirtless Pitt strapped to a gurney and surrounded by EMS technicians as authorities escort him down a street in Bushwick, Brooklyn to a waiting ambulance. Pitt appears to be in a daze as he looks up at the sky while lying quietly on the stretcher.

Police were responding to a 911 call about Pitt throwing things at people from the rooftop of a building.

Responding officers apprehended Pitt but did not charge him with a crime as he was deemed to be an emotionally disturbed person. Pitt was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

The actor was charged with assault and petty larceny charges in July after hitting another man multiple times in the head and then snatching his phone.

The arrest in July took place as the arrest on Friday night.

The New Jersey-born Pitt, 41, portrayed Jimmy Darmody on the first two seasons of “Boardwalk Empire” and is also known for the series “Dawson’s Creek” and “Hannibal.”
