Pavlik has a history of alcohol and substance abuse problems in the past. He was arrested recently for a couple of DUIs and a theft case. During one of the court appearances he collapsed in court according to TMZ.
Courtroom sources tell us … Pavlik was in court to face charges in a theft case (stemming from an incident where he allegedly stiffed a cab driver) … when he suddenly collapsed.
We’re told 31-year-old Pavlick was loaded up onto a stretcher and taken to an ambulance … which transported him to a nearby hospital.
Sources say Pavlick was awake and alert inside the ambulance.
