Heather Locklear: Actress reportedly placed on psychiatric hold after paramedics called to home

Actress Heather Locklear was reportedly placed on a psychiatric hold after her therapist and lawyer called EMTs to her California home on Sunday.

TMZ reported that EMTs took Locklear, 57, to the hospital after arriving at the scene. Sources who spoke with the tabloid noted that the “Melrose Place” star’s boyfriend wasn’t at the residence, contradicting reports that Sunday’s 911 call stemmed from a domestic dispute between the couple.

It’s unclear whether alcohol played a role in Sunday’s ordeal; TMZ reported that the 911 call was placed as a precaution for Locklear and her mental health.

“Deputies responded to a medical call at Ms. Locklear’s residence yesterday afternoon. There was no crime, and we have no additional information to release,” a Ventura County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson told Page Six in a statement.

Reports noted that this is the second time in recent months Locklear has been placed on a psychiatric hold.

In June, the actress underwent psychological evaluation for allegedly threatening to shoot herself because she believed her boyfriend was cheating. She was held for three days—and was arrested four days following her release for battering an EMT, according to Page Six.

Hours after Locklear was released from custody for the alleged incident with the EMT, People reported that she was hospitalized for a possible overdose.

In July, People confirmed that the 57-year-old was undergoing long-term treatment for her substance abuse and mental health issues. At the time, sources told the magazine that she was scheduled to stay at the facility at least until September.
