"An adult male described as medically stable was taken to an area hospital for further assessment."

According to TMZ, Kanye was handcuffed during transport to the hospital as part of standard protocol. 

They claim Kanye is being held for psychiatric evaluation, while other reports are suggesting the ‘Famous’ rapper is being examined for severe sleep deprivation.
