Actor Michael Madsen has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving in Malibu and is spending the night in a hospital.

A spokesperson for the Sheriff's office said Madsen was pulled over on Wednesday for driving erratically on the Pacific Coast Highway.

The actor was taken to hospital after complaining of a medical problem but the spokesperson could not reveal his condition due to privacy laws.

A preliminary test showed Madsen had a blood alcohol level of .21. The legal limit is .08.

Retired boxing champion Muhammad Ali will receive the Liberty Medal on Thursday in Philadelphia, in a ceremony at the National Constitution Center.

The honor is given annually to an individual who displays courage and conviction while striving to secure liberty for people worldwide and comes with a $100,000 cash prize.

Ceremony officials described Ali as a "tireless humanitarian and philanthropist."

Rapper Kanye West has received the most nominations, at the seventh annual BET Hip-Hop Awards with 17 nods.

West hasn't released a solo album since 2010, but has had a big year as a producer, performer and director.

Rapper 2 Chainz scored 13 nominations and Drake earned 11.
