Heather Locklear Hospitalized After Possible Overdose

The "Melrose Place" actress was released from jail hours earlier.

“Melrose Place” actress Heather Locklear was hospitalized Monday for a possible overdose, People reported, hours after she was released from jail on charges of battering a police officer at her home.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office told media that ambulance personnel transported someone from Locklear’s Thousand Oaks, California, home. TMZ and other outlets confirmed it was the 56-year-old star.

Hours earlier, Locklear was freed on bail on two misdemeanor counts of battery on a police officer or emergency personnel. Police alleged she kicked an officer at her home during a domestic disturbance and also kicked an EMT worker who was evaluating her for intoxication.

Last week, Locklear was hospitalized after family members said she reportedly threatened to kill herself. She was charged in February with felony domestic violence after allegedly battering her boyfriend, and was accused of striking three officers.

The actress, who also was a regular on “Spin City,” has reportedly been in rehab at least five times.

Neither the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office nor a rep for Locklear immediately responded to HuffPost’s requests for comment.
