City Atty. Carmen Trutanich was admitted to a hospital this weekend after suffering abdominal pains, a spokesman said today.

Trutanich's communications director, John Franklin, said Trutanich spent the Thanksgiving holiday in the Los Angeles area and checked himself in to a local hospital as a precaution on Saturday. Franklin said he could not disclose the name of the hospital where Trutanich is being treated.

"He has had some tests done, he should be released tomorrow or the next day," Franklin said. "He's doing great."
