Heather Locklear Placed On Another Psychiatric Hold

E! Online

Just months after sharing a message about addiction and entering rehab for treatment, Heather Locklear is once again falling off the rails.

TMZ just reported that the the Melrose Place star has once again been placed on a psychiatric hold after suffering another mental breakdown.

According to sources close to the actress, her therapist and lawyer were with her when her ongoing mental problem resurfaced over the weekend, requiring 911 to be called.

Although it is said that no alcohol or drugs were involved the EMTs were called as a precaution since Locklear's previous meltdowns have turned violent.

Locklear has since been taken to a hospital, where she currently remains.

There have been reports that Locklear has assaulted her boyfriend, but TMZ confirmed that they're simply not true as he has not been at her home in several days.

Locklear has already been hospitalized multiple times throughout the year over different medical emergencies, including mental health concerns.

One of the incidents escalated so fast that the actress ended up being charged with one count of battery on a police officer, one count of battery on an EMT, and one count of resisting and obstructing a police officer.

Previous incidents

In February, cops were called to the actress's home after she and her boyfriend Chris Heisser got into a physical altercation. Locklear was arrested, but before they could get her in handcuffs, she became aggressive and assaulted three deputies. She was later taken to a hospital for evaluation.

According to Locklear's sister, she got physical with her boyfriend because he tried to "choke and kill her." The police report corroborated this, saying Heisser "was standing on the side of the bed leaning over Heather and holding her wrists while she was on the bed."

In the days that followed, police were able to obtain a search warrant, enabling them to look through Locklear's home for a gun, as well as "ammunition, holsters, paraphernalia related to firearms, prescription bottles, diaries, clothing, mail and various other items." They also searched for drugs, as Locklear had previously been reported as suicidal in 2012 with a history of drugs.

A few months later, on June 17, cops were once again called to Locklear's home after she allegedly threatened to kill herself.

It was her mother who called law enforcement after the 56-year-old got agitated and choked her before hitting her father. In the 911 call, Locklear's mother claims she was searching the house to find a gun to kill herself with. When authorities arrived, Locklear was transported to the hospital where she was placed on a psychiatric hold.

Nearly one week later, Locklear found herself in jail after assaulting another police officer responding to a call about a disturbance at her home.

It was finally confirmed in July that Locklear was seeking long-term treatment for substance abuse as well as her mental health, and for a while, everything seemed to be going well.

Unfortunately, it looks like she still has along road ahead of her in the recovery process.

We hope she will finally be able to get the right treatment after this recent breakdown.
