Heather Locklear Hospitalized in Possible Overdose Hours After Leaving Jail



Only one day after actress Heather Locklear was arrested for attacking a police officer and emergency personnel, medical responders were called to transport an unnamed patient to a nearby hospital.

Locklear, 56, was reportedly taken from her home to the hospital, although the Ventura County Fire Department would not confirm.

Locklear was arrested on Sunday for allegedly kicking a police officer who was interviewing her after the domestic disturbance, before allegedly kicking a medical professional who was evaluating her due to her level of intoxication, a Ventura County spokesperson told ET.

According to TMZ, the actress is said to have launched the attack while "heavily intoxicated" on Sunday night, prompting a concerned family member to call the police.

In February, she was arrested after a domestic dispute with her boyfriend, and she allegedly assaulted an officer.

Locklear was released Monday morning after posting $20,000 bail.

She was taken into custody just after midnight on Monday at her Thousand Oaks home in Ventura County.

It is the second time this year that she has been arrested for battery on a police officer.

A source told Us Weekly, "Heather is now stable". She was reportedly taken to the hospital for psychological evaluation the week prior after allegedly threatening to take her own life in a violent clash with her parents.

She is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday afternoon.

In April, Locklear's attorneys Blair Berk and William Haney plead not guilty to battery on a police officer on her behalf because she was in rehab after seeking treatment for addiction. "Hooker" in the 1980s as well as "Melrose Place" in the 1990s.

At the time of her release from jail, Locklear was said to have looked "disheveled", as she left with her attorney William Haney. However, those charges were later dismissed and she was instead sentenced to three years of informal probation and ordered to pay a $700 fine.
