Heather Locklear Arrested Again, Checking Herself Into Treatment

Dynasty and Melrose Place star Heather Locklear was arrested on Sunday night for battery against a police officer and emergency personnel.

The Ventura County Sheriff's Office said they responded to a 911 call at Locklear's home shortly after 11 p.m. PST. Locklear appeared "heavily intoxicated" and was "arguing with other subjects at the residence."

"The responding deputy believed it was necessary to separate her from the others," a spokesperson for the police department sad. "In the process of trying to separate her, she battered the deputy...There was no injury to the deputy. That action caused her to get arrested."

Due to her "behavior and level of intoxication," police called an ambulance to check on Locklear, who is 56.

Locklear then proceeded to allegedly kick an EMT, who was attempting to put her on a gurney, in the chest. She was then taken to the hospital to be examined before being taken to jail where she spent the night before posting $20,000 bail at 9:10 a.m. PST.

She is expected in court for a hearing on August 23.

Locklear's latest arrest comes just days after the actress was released following a three-day hold in a hospital psych ward.

The actress was hospitalized on June 17, after she threatened to kill herself and was held on a 5150 call, in which a person can be held for 72 hours against their will for evaluation and treatment.

UPDATE:
Locklear is out of jail and, sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ, she is on her way to a hospital where she will voluntarily check herself in for treatment of alcohol abuse as well as mental health issues.
