Last week, Locklear was hospitalized and underwent a psychiatric evaluation. According to reports, Locklear's mother called 911, claiming that Locklear was acting erratically and threatening self harm.

This is the second time the actress was arrested for alleged assault of a police officer. In February, she was charged with one count of domestic violence and three counts of battery on emergency personnel. Locklear has been in trouble with the law before that as well. She was arrested in 2008 on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Additionally, Locklear and ex-fiance Jack Wagner were ordered to appear in court in 2012 after an alleged violent fight.

Over the years, Locklear has sought treatment for depression and anxiety and reportedly went through drug rehabilitation after being hospitalized from mixing prescription drugs and alcohol.
