Actress Heather Locklear hospitalised
TROUBLED actress Heather Locklear was hospitalised for a psychiatric evaluation after a family member claimed the star had threatened to harm herself, reports.
According to a 911 call, which was obtained by the website, the family member called in and said Locklear, 56, was trying to "hurt herself", reports the New York Post.
It was also noted that the actor did not have access to a weapon.
The Ventura County Fire Department and Sheriff's Office responded to the 911 call, and Locklear was transported to a hospital, according to the site.
Locklear is having a difficult year. In February, she was arrested on charges of domestic violence and assault on three police officers.
Locklear was accused of pushing and shouting at police officers who were answering a call that she had been violent with her boyfriend at the home. She was not charged with domestic violence, but her lawyer entered the plea of not guilty to four misdemeanour counts of battery on an officer in April.
Locklear is best known for appearing on Dynasty and T.J. Hooker in the 1980s and Melrose Place in the 1990s. She was arrested after the incident in February and posted her $US20,000 ($26,000) bail.
The former Melrose Place star had issues with substance abuse in the past and most recently entered rehab last year. She was arrested previously in 2008 on suspicion of driving under the influence. However, the charges were later dismissed. She was sentenced at the time to three years of informal probation and ordered to pay $US700 ($950) as a fine and to take a driving safety class.
Locklear entered rehab for the fifth time in January 2017. She told the New York Post at the time, "I am feeling great and am taking steps to enrich and better my life."
