Resurfaces For First Time Since Hospitalization Mischa Barton

Mischa Barton was spotted out and about, with a mystery man, less than two weeks since she checked into rehab.

The “OC” actress was photographed walking next to an unidentified male outside of Catch restaurant in West Hollywood over the weekend.

Barton’s outing marked the first time she’s been seen in public since she sought medical help for a mental evaluation.

Barton was taken to a West Hollywood hospital on January 26 after police were called to her home. It was reported that the actress, 31, had been ranting about a number of bizarre things, including her mother being a witch and the world shattering.

In a statement following her release, Barton claimed she had been slipped GHB, a date-rape drug, while she was out celebrating her birthday.

“While having drinks, I realized that something was not right as my behavior was becoming erratic and continued to intensify over the next several hours,” she explained to People magazine. “I voluntarily went to get professional help, and I was informed by their staff that I had been given GHB.”

Barton then issued a warning to young women.

“Be aware of your surroundings,” she said.
