[USA] Jun 19(ANI): American actress Heather Locklear was hospitalised after she threatened to kill herself.

Heather has been taken for a psychiatric evaluation after a family member called the police and said they were concerned about her behaviour.

A source close to Heather told TMZ that the 56-year-old was disturbed during the day, following which her parents visited her. That is when Heather got violent, choked her mother and hit her father.

Law enforcement sources said that the family member had also called 911 the previous afternoon to report they were concerned for Heather.

According to the dispatch audio, the caller claimed Heather was acting erratically and threatening to hurt herself. The caller said that Heather was trying to find a gun to shoot herself, reported TMZ.

The 'Melrose Place' actress was then taken to a hospital.

Heather's hospitalisation comes three months after she was arrested following an alleged domestic dispute. Her bail was set at 20,000 USD and the 'Spin City' star was soon released. (ANI)
