'Boston Legal' star William Shatner grounded by back pain
UPI News Service, 10/19/2005
"Boston Legal" Emmy-winner William Shatner was recovering Wednesday from back spasms that sent the 74-year-old actor to the hospital a day earlier.
Shatner had just finished Tuesday's shooting of the ABC series when lower back pain struck and he was transported by ambulance to Little Company of Mary Hospital in the Los Angeles suburb of Torrance, E! Online reported.
Shatner's publicist said the hospital trip was "a precautionary measure only" and he was expected back to work as usual Wednesday.
