Free At Last!


(photo via entertainment tonight)

TMZ is reporting that Britney Spears has just been released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, following an action-packed morning in which she apparently did what medical experts refer to as "pitch a fit." The hospital had her in a so-called "5150 hold" which means that:
She can be held against her will for a max of 72 hours, but if the hospital determines she is no longer a danger, they can release her before that.

Additional sources now tell TMZ Cedars absolutely made the decision on its own -- without consulting any of the lawyers in the case. We're told it is Cedars policy (and the policy of other California hospitals) to evaluate whether the "danger" has subsided at any point during the 72-hour hold.
It's only been two days and already this whole thing has totally exhausted me, and I'm just sitting here typing. Imagine how Britney must feel? And all the many, many lawyers...

Developing. Ad infinitum. Sigh...
