Heather Locklear Hospitalized for Suspected Mix of Drugs, Alcohol

by at . Comments

Heather Locklear was rushed to the hospital around 2 p.m. local time today, after authorities responded to a call from her sister in Los Angeles, who feared the actress was in danger.

Law enforcement officials tell TMZ they believe Locklear took a mixture of prescription drugs and alcohol, as paramedics on the scene decided she needed medical attention.

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

Locklear, who called off her engagement to Jack Wagner late last year, was just spotted Tuesday night with a friend at the Lakers game.

Heather used to play the role of the heroine who helped to run the show (think T.J. Hooker, Dynasty, Melrose Place, and Spin City). Even when Heather was married to hard boiled rocker Tommy Lee, she lived a quiet life with No headlines. In the past few years, it has become troubling to see that Heather's headlines are either about alcohol or prescription drug use. Hopefully Heather will soon bounce back to being that healthy star that so many of her fans were familiar with!!

I doubt if she tried to commit suicide. It just sounds like she thought she could get away with having a drink or four. Way too many people, not just celebs, think they can get away with it, and that the warning doesn't apply to them because they "can handle it." More than that are the people who don't realize they can wreck their livers combining alcohol with a number of non-narcotic meds.
