The drama continues for Bachelor star Brad Womack.
The reality star jumped into action to help a fellow citizen in need on Monday, PEOPLE has learned. “Brad called 911 for a guy that was having a panic attack in the park near Brad,” says an ABC spokesperson.
Earlier it was reported that Womack himself had been hospitalized in Austin, Texas, for a non-life threatening medical issue.
“The incident has nothing to do directly with Brad,” says the rep. “He just made the call.”
Last week it was revealed that Womack had picked single mom Emily Maynard as the winner on The Bachelor.
