Heather Locklear Rushed to Hospital After Jail Release

Heather Locklear Rushed to Hospital After Jail Release

Actress Heather Locklear was released from jail on Monday, but hours later, she found herself in a hospital again.

TMZ reports that paramedics rushed to Locklear’s Thousand Oaks home over “overdose” concerns. The 56-year-old is reportedly getting the treatment she needs.

A source told Us Weekly, “Heather is currently stable. She didn’t want to leave her home [Monday] afternoon to get further treatment that she had agreed to get earlier in the day. Authorities were called when Heather said she had taken prescription medication and there [were] concerns she had taken more than she had been prescribed. The family is asking for privacy at this time.”

Before her hospitalization Monday, another insider said, “This is a very serious situation. Heather refuses to get treatment… Heather’s parents are asking [her boyfriend] Chris [Heisser] to stay away from Heather for a bit to give her some space to get the help she needs.”

According to RadarOnline.com, her family is hoping to keep to her in a hospital for at least 14 days with a 5250 hold. A source told the site, "She needs enough time to detox and undergo an evaluation."

Heather’s troubling behavior has been making headlines this year. In February, she was arrested for domestic violence and assault on a police officer after a physical altercation with Heisser. They were both released on bail. Months later, she was hospitalized after she reportedly threatened to kill herself.
