Heather Locklear has been arrested again, this time for battery on a police officer and emergency personnel, just days after she underwent a psychiatric evaluation.
The troubled "Melrose Place" actress was arrested Sunday for two counts of misdemeanor battery, police said.
Locklear, 56, allegedly drank heavily before becoming so agitated that a family member called 911, according to TMZ. When police arrived at a Ventura County, California home, Locklear allegedly punched a deputy as officers were trying to separate her from family. Then she allegedly kicked an EMT as she was being put onto a gurney. It's unclear if the incident happened at her home or a family member's.
The actress is being held on $20,000 bail. She is set to appear in court Tuesday afternoon.
Sunday’s incident is just the latest scandal this year for the star. She was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold one week before this arrest after she allegedly attacked her parents before threatening to kill herself. On June 17, police received a 911 call from a woman identifying herself as Locklear's mother, according to a recording of police radio transmission obtained by TMZ. The woman said Locklear was “trying to hurt herself and looking for a gun to shoot herself,” adding that “she is agitated and violent.”
In February, Locklear was arrested for alleged domestic abuse against her boyfriend and for threatening to shoot police, according to to the Ventura County Sheriff's Office. Charges were later dropped, and Locklear entered rehab at the time.
Her ex-fiancé and former "Melrose Place" costar Jack Wagner told US Magazine after Locklear's first June arrest: “Listen, we all have our struggles and our issues. There’s no one that can say we don’t. Heather’s in my prayers. I love her and her family, and I just hope that she can really dig in and turn her life around. I love her to death.”
Fans turned to Twitter to express their concern for the actress's well-being.
