Gotham Gossipist: ‘Exhausted’ (Not Drunk) Tracy Morgan Collapses At Sundance Film Festival

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The entertainment industry has converged on Park City, Utah, for the famed Sundance Film Festival, and  anyone who is anyone is premiering a new film or showing support of a famous friend — or falling down drunk in the middle of an award acceptance speech.

’30 Rock’ funny man, Tracy Morgan, is used to making a scene. But on Sunday night he went above and beyond at the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards.

Tracy accepted an award, gave a somewhat nonsensical speech, got kicked out, and then proceeded to collapse outside the hotel hosting the ceremony, according to TMZ.

All in a day’s work.

Morgan was rushed to a local hospital where he is currently receiving treatment for not being drunk.  Oh, right.

Amy Roberts, a spokeswoman for Park City Medical Center told TMZ that Tracy wasn’t under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

It was, in fact “a combination of exhaustion and altitude” that did Tracy in, claims his publicist Lewis Kay.

Kay continues the damage control with: “He is with his fiancée and grateful to the Park City Medical Center for their care. Any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100% false.”
