Heather Locklear Taken To Hospital After 911 Call

The actress is taken to a hospital after an emergency phone call is placed from her home.

Heather Locklear was rushed to a California hospital on Thursday with what law officials are labeling "a medical emergency."

TMZ reports that the emergency was a dangerous mix of prescription medication and alcohol. She was taken by ambulance from her home after a call was placed to 911.

"Emergency response personnel responded to a medical emergency call at Ms. Locklear's residence," Ventura County Sheriff's Capt. Mike Aranda told People later Thursday. "Once they arrived, it was determined that Ms. Locklear needed to be transported to the hospital for further medical attention."

This is the second medical scare for the 50-year-old actress within the past 13 months. In December of 2010, Locklear landed in the hospital for a brief stay for a bacterial infection.

2011 was not without bumps for the actress either after a split with longtime beau Jack Wagner, once her co-star on "Melrose." The couple had been engaged for only three months.

Locklear had appeared in public as recently as Tuesday night at a Lakers game, reports TMZ.

Locklear had returned to television in 2009 to revive her role as Amanda Woodward on a reboot of "Melrose Place." Locklear had proved dependable for weekly watercooler discussion during the series' original run in the mid-'90s.
