Dynasty star Heather Locklear hospitalized hours after jail release

Heather Locklear was taken to the hospital for the second time in just over two weeks on Monday afternoon.

The former Dynasty actress was arrested on Sunday and charged with two counts of misdemeanour battery upon an officer and emergency services personnel after they responded to her home in Thousand Oaks, California to deal with a domestic disturbance.

Heather, who was allegedly intoxicated, was taken to a hospital and then on to jail, before she was released on a $20,000 bail on Monday morning.

According to TMZ.com, the 56-year-old was back in hospital again on Monday after emergency services received a call reporting that someone was overdosing at her home that afternoon. Cops and paramedics rushed to her property, and an ambulance took the star from the house to a nearby medical facility.

A spokesperson for the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office told Entertainment Tonight, “We did go to her house this afternoon about 3 p.m. along with fire department and ambulance personnel and when everyone arrived on scene they determined that it was a medical issue and a patient was transport (sic) from the house to a local hospital.”

A source has told TMZ that the actress is in a stable condition and she is getting the necessary treatment.

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.

She was arrested on similar charges back in February, for attacking cops responding to a domestic dispute with her boyfriend, Chris Heisser. The actress, who has pleaded not guilty over the incident, subsequently embarked on a brief stint in rehab to tackle substance abuse issues.

Her Sunday arrest comes shortly after she was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold after family members made a 911 call claiming she was trying to harm herself.
