David Hasselhoff’s lawyers want you to know that he was fine when they spoke to him on Sunday. In fact, they’ve put out a statement saying that. It says in part:” Mr. Hasselhoff spoke to his attorneys on Sunday, and was absolutely fine.”

Too bad. They should have spoken to him Saturday night, when he was on the floor passed out and discovered by his 16-year-old daughter Hayley.

(Note to potential law students: his lawyers never actually say the Hoff wasn’t treated for alcohol poisoning. They never reveal his blood alcohol level. They never say how many previous times he’s been treated for alcohol poisoning. So, by avoiding specifics here, they are excellent advocates for their client!)

Despite Team Hoff’s attempts to downplay the seriousness of his drunken condition Saturday, has learned even MORE details about the Hoff’s lost weekend.

First a brief review of the spin:

Sunday, Hoff’s reps say he’s fine. They don’t mention anything about a trip to the hospital and say Hoff was happily celebrating his dad’s birthday. TMZ swallows it whole!

Early Monday: After revealed more details about the horrific situation his spin team came up with this scenario: David had been drinking but really not all that much. The Hoff didn’t feel good so he thought he should go to the hospital. Someone drove him there. He’s fine, though he regrets drinking.

Later Monday: After reveals that Hoff was foaming at the mouth and had to be heavily assisted to the car by his ex-wife and daughter, his lawyers release a statement saying he was fine SUNDAY and he’s disturbed by inaccurate stories in the press.

E! Online has a source who says Hasselhoff “probably had a drink” before going to the emergency room. People’s web site confirms he was hospitalized after drinking but then quotes a source saying he was never unconscious “He went on his own power to his car and went to Cedars.”

And now for the new details from, which broke the story: Hoff was driven to the ER around 8 p.m. He wasn’t released until approximately 12 hours later. His family was scared to death.

So now we’re waiting for his reps, who clearly want to set the record straight, to tell us exactly what was the Hoff’s blood alcohol level? And how many other times has he been treated for alcohol poisoning
