Shocking Video: Mischa Barton has meltdown after someone allegedly slips her ‘date rape’ drug

by Ellen Killoran

“Be aware of your surroundings,” the actress said in a statement

A nosy neighbor recorded video of Mischa Barton’s backyard breakdown last week, which resulted in a brief hospital stay for the former star of the “The O.C.”

TMZ first obtained and published the video.

Barton has since told People magazine that she believes someone slipped GHB, commonly known as the “date rape” drug, into her drink on Wednesday evening as she was out celebrating her birthday.

In the video, Barton can be seen hanging over a fence surrounding her West Hollywood home, speaking incoherently. “Oh my god, it’s over, I feel it, it’s angry!” she says. She goes on to speak about her mother, calling her “a witch.”

“I knew it! What a witch!” she screams. “I was right! I was right!”

She then appears to be addressing someone or something in particular: “Oh, you’re angry… I’ll be your conduit… #$#@ yeah.”

The video ends when Barton falls down from the fence. She appears not be seriously injured, but it does look like a hard fall — so we sure hope the neighbor ended the recording to call the authorities and make sure Barton was okay. Reportedly, multiple neighbors called 911 to report a disturbance.

Barton volunteered to be transported to a hospital for psychiatric evaluation, and has since been released. In a statement to People magazine, the 31-year-old actress says she believed someone slipped her the drug while she out celebrating her birthday.

“I would like to extend a big thanks of gratitude to the professionals at Cedars-Sinai for their great care and professionalism,” she said. “This is a lesson to all young women out there, be aware of your surroundings.”
