Former 'Price Is Right' Host Bob Barker Hospitalized After Nasty Fall

Former The Price Is Right host Bob Barker was injured after falling just a few feet from the gate of his Hollywood Hills home during his daily walk on Tuesday, police confirm to ET.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, officers saw Barker trip, fall and hit his head at around 10:30 a.m.

"Officers provided first aid on scene until paramedics arrived," the LAPD told ET in a statement.

Barker had lacerations to his head but was not seriously injured.

After paramedics arrived, Barker was transported to a local hospital in stable condition.

The rep added, "He works out every day and is disappointed that he'll have to take a little break until he heals."

Earlier this year, Barker, an animal activist, spoke out against the killing of Zimbabwe's Cecil the Lion, calling for Dr. Walter Palmer's arrest.

"I understand that his patients are lining up to cancel their appointments and well-deserved," Barker told ET in July. "If he was my dentist I would never set eyes on him again."

Last month, Dr. Palmer returned to his Minnesota practice amid protests.
