Comedian Tracy Morgan collapsed over the weekend at the Sundance Film Festival, and many speculated that the 30 Rock star was intoxicated. But his publicist says the claims are completely untrue. The 43-year-old Saturday Night Live veteran was being honored in Park City, Utah at the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards; he suddenly became unresponsive after his acceptance speech. An ambulance took Morgan to a nearby hospital for treatment and tests there found no drugs or alcohol in his system. His publicist says: “He is with his fiancée and grateful to the Park City Medical Center for their care. Any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100 per cent false. From a combination of exhaustion and altitude, Tracy is seeking medical attention.” Morgan was diagnosed with diabetes back in the 90s, and was hospitalized in 2010 to receive a kidney transplant.
