On Sunday night, according to TMZ sources, the actress called the Westampton Township Police Department in New Jersey because she had received multiple Tweets from a fan who threatened to kill herself unless she spoke to Doherty.

After convincing the follower to provide her with an address, Doherty gave it to local law enforcement officials, who checked on the situation at the woman's home.

They spoke with her there and found nothing to indicate any immediate danger; the woman insisted she had no intention of harming herself, declined medical attention and the cops departed the residence.

Tweeted the actress after everything settled down:

"Thank you to the Westampton police department for being diligent and so reassuring."
