Delonte West was reportedly hallucinating, left medical facility
Delonte West was reportedly on medication and hallucinating when a fan spotted him wandering around outside a Jack in the Box restaurant over a week ago.
Sources who are “extremely close” to West told TMZ on Monday that West had taken the wrong medication at a facility where he was being treated for bipolar disorder. He ended up leaving the facility shoeless.
“Delonte was at a facility where he received the wrong medication,” a friend explained. “He began hallucinating. Because of the hallucinations he walked out of the facility, barefoot, in the hospital gown. He went to go get food. That’s when he was video taped and photographed.”
A fan who spotted West at Jack in the Box snapped a couple of photos, and West clearly did not look right. The 32-year is reportedly being treated at a different facility now and those close to him are confident he is receiving the proper care.
Prior to the incident last month, we hadn’t heard much about West in a while — aside from that Twitter rant about LeBron James that may have been from a fake account. Hopefully West is able to get the help he needs.
