Heather Locklear Hospitalized After Attacking Parents: Report

Newser — Josh Gardner

Actress Heather Locklear has reportedly been hospitalized after threatening to shoot herself. Per TMZ, the 56-year-old Melrose Place star was "agitated" at her Southern California home when her parents arrived to check on her.

At some point, the report says Locklear attempted to strangle her mother and hit her father, after which 911 was called. As Fox News notes, the caller told dispatchers Locklear was trying to find a gun in order to kill herself but that the actress has no access to weapons.

Authorities responded from the Ventura County Fire Department and Locklear was transported to a hospital for a psych evaluation. Locklear was last in the headlines in February, when she was arrested in a domestic incident in which she was accused of assaulting her boyfriend and three police officers.
