VERNE "MINI-ME" TROYER was hospitalized Monday night, after a friend called the police to say he was drunk, extremely upset, and suicidal. TMZ says he's being held for 72 hours for evaluation.
His people put a message on his Instagram saying, quote, "Asking you to keep Verne in your thoughts and prayers. He's getting the best care possible and is resting comfortably.
"Appreciate the support from family, friends, and fans around the world."
Verne has struggled with alcoholism for years. He was hospitalized last year right around this time, and eventually checked himself into rehab.
