Heather Locklear is reportedly trying rehab one more time after her latest arrest and rumored overdose. Police arrested the former Melrose Place star again last weekend when she allegedly attacked an emergency responder and police officer after cops received a call about a “disturbance” at the actress’ home in Westlake Village, California.
Officers from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department arrived at Locklear’s home and found the 56-year-old to be “extremely intoxicated” and in the middle of a fight with a friend (or boyfriend).
“They tried to separate her from the argument, and when they stepped in, she battered the deputy,” says Captain Mike Beckett. “She punched him in the chest and stomach.”

The Captain went on to say that the deputy didn’t suffer any injuries, but because of Locklear’s intoxication level, they decided to call an ambulance and get her checked out. When the EMT’s arrived at Locklear’s home, they determined that she needed an evaluation and it was “necessary” to take her to the hospital.
However, the actress kicked one of the EMT’s when they “attempted to strap her to the gurney.”
Sgt. Eric Buschow says that it was his understanding that Locklear was “extremely uncooperative throughout the whole thing.”
After the emergency responders took the actress to the hospital, they quickly released her back into police custody. Then, they charged Locklear with two counts of battery and held her in Ventura County Jail on $20,000 bail until they released her.
Just a few hours later, paramedics and the sheriff’s department responded to another call about the troubled actress. An inside source told people that Locklear was suffering from a possible overdose.
It was just last week that Locklear threatened to attack her parents and shoot herself, which resulted in an involuntary hospitalization.

Police have released Locklear’s mugshot from her most recent arrest, and the actress is barely recognizable. She appears disheveled and exhausted in the disturbing photo, with no makeup and wild, messy hair.
For the past few months, Locklear’s troubles have played out publicly. Back in February, prosecutors charged Locklear with five misdemeanor charges against an officer, and in that case, she still faces up to ten years in jail. She also went to rehab for the sixth time in March.
The former Spin City star is the mom of 20-year-old Ava, who she shares with her ex-husband, Richie Sambora. Neither her daughter or ex has commented on Locklear’s latest arrest.
Thursday, August 23rd is Heather Locklear’s next scheduled court date.
