Actress Heather Locklear was rushed to hospital yesterday in the afternoon after taking a combination of prescription drugs and alcohol, according to reports.
Heather Locklear’s sister called 911 earlier today to report the “medical emergency”, TMZ reported.
According to TMZ law enforcement sources confirmed that Heather Locklear, 50, was examined by paramedics when they arrived and decided she needed to be hospitalized.
The Dynasty star is currently being treated and is recovering in the Los Robles Hospital and Medical Centre in California.
According to a hospital spokesperson who told TMZ, Heather Locklear was “awake and responsive” upon her arrival.
Heather Locklear’s parents, who are also by her side in the medical facility, have released a statement through the hospital.

This is not the first time the former Melrose Place star has been rushed to hospital and in 2008 a 911 call was made by her doctor who said she had tried to “commit suicide”, however it was later denied that this was the case.
In June 2008, Heather Locklear checked into a medical facility to see treatment for anxiety and depression.
Three months later she was arrested for driving under the influence of prescription drugs and she had to be helped from her police car.
Alcohol was ruled out after tests but Heather Locklear was charged with driving under the influence of prescription medication and released on $4,500 bail.
On Tuesday night Heather Locklear attended a Lakers basketball game at the Staples Centre, where she was seen laughing and joking with friends and appeared to be in good spirits.
