Roberts "was treated at a local hospital on June 21 for an injury to his forehead sustained in a fall while walking for exercise near his home," spokeswoman Kathy Arberg told Fox News. "The injury required sutures, and out of an abundance of caution, he stayed in the hospital overnight and was discharged the next morning. His doctors ruled out a seizure. They believe the fall was likely due to light-headedness caused by dehydration."
