Heather Locklear Sent To Hospital For Psych Evaluation After Threatening To Harm Herself

Photo Credit: Wenn

Former Dynasty and Melrose Place star, Heather Locklear is back in the news Monday morning with another troubling report from TMZ.com.

Reportedly, Locklear was hospitalized in Thousand Oaks, California on Sunday.  Her mother called 911 claiming the actress was threatening to kill herself, and acting erratically.

In the dispatch audio call that was made public by TMZ, it seemed that her mother claimed that Locklear was “agitated and violent.”  She also added that Heather was, “trying to hurt herself and looking for a gun to shoot herself, even though she does not have access to any weapons.”

Both the Ventura Country Fire and Sheriff’s Department were dispatched to Locklear’s home.

A source close to Heather reportedly said that the actress was agitated during the day, so her parents went over to her home to check on her. According to the report, that’s when Locklear got violent, choking her mother and hitting her father.

Locklear was arrested months ago on a felony charge for domestic violence and three counts of misdemeanor battery on a police officer following a domestic dispute with her boyfriend.  The domestic abuse charges were dropped in March. Locklear was in rehab in April, while her attorneys pleaded not guilty to battery on her behalf.

Back in 2008, there was a report that Locklear was also suicidal. The Melrose Place and Dynasty star has had a history of substance abuse.

So, what do you think of the latest troubles for Heather? Comment below.

Very sad. I seems to be the older actors are in the news for this type of problem lately (Windsor Harmon). I hope she gets the help she needs.

What’s to think? Heather needs to figure out how to maintain sobriety from whatever substance(s) she takes. Getting sober is easy, staying sober will stop all of this nonsense. I hope she finds the courage to do so.

Figured she had lost her mind a couple years back when she was shilling for the Orange Imbecile. What a damned shame…. Heather was a great poster girl for sin back in the day. All of us down here in Hell appreciated her past efforts.

Self worth has to be based on more important things than looks, in both cases looks are fading as is self esteem.

I’ve always been a fan of Heather Locklear’s and I hope that she finds the help that she needs. Depression, substance abuse, mental illness, are all very serious issues and cannot just be swept under the rug. She has a beautiful daughter who must be absolutely heartbroken for her mother. From articles that I have read, it sounds as though Heather has not been surrounding herself with the healthiest individuals. I just don’t understand it.

@dmr…I always liked Heather, too…Despite her early rise to fame, she seemed to have a mind of her own and an independent spirit instead of simply parroting the same old, same old cliche’ tripe, which is such a rare thing in Hollywood!!! So refreshing! That probably didn’t help her career, especially in later years, but still what a sad state to which she has now sunk….when it gets to the point that one is even attacking their own parents, then help is indeed needed ASAP. Like you, I never really got her odd taste in men, save for Jack Wagner,… Read more »

It’s so sad, and she was just arrested, again, after she was released from the required medical “hold.” I have always been such a fan of hers. I always thought that she was beautiful and talented-still do. Hollywood/Los Angeles must really play with people’s minds. I often think, why not up and leave after making it big, and live a nice, secluded life somewhere and enjoy your wealth? I know it’s easier said than done, and coming from someone who hasn’t experienced the Hollywood lifestyle/microscope. I know that I would not be able to live under that scrutiny. As a… Read more »

Yes, I just read the same, dmr….very tragic! This Is so much more than simple substance abuse gone to the extreme…to continually attack loved ones indicates a serious, underlying psychoses that drugs and alcohol only further fuel…I really do pray that Heather will finally get some much needed, comprehensive medical attention for not just her addictive behaviors, but her control issues, as well, because it seems as though time is running out for her to get it together. Either she or someone else will be bodily harmed if this keeps up….perhaps irreparably. Once that happens, may she find the strength… Read more »

I’m sure her being an aging starlet/sex symbol has only aggravated whatever else she deals with mentally. It’s hard to see yourself fade from the limelight. Sorry for her.

This is really sad. Attacked her parents that were trying to help her, after she’s already been arrested for domestic violence. I hope she can get the help she needs.

I’ve noticed after she stopped getting work all of the substance abuse and violence started.

Carol, sorry to hear about your mom, and that you are going through such a hard time. I have dealt with this my entire life. A few things that have helped me are exercise, music, and cooking-anything positive and healthy that I can do to keep my body and mind active. I always need to feel productive, and those activities have helped me immensely. Loss and grief can feel unbearable at times. Anxiety, like depression, is something most people do not understand unless they’ve experienced it. It’s not a feeling of being excited or nervous. It’s a constant state of… Read more »
