Heather Locklear is in hospital after threatening to kill herself.
TMZ reports a family member called 911 Sunday afternoon to say they were concerned for the actress.
Ventura County Fire and Sheriff’s Departments responded to Locklear’s home.
A source told TMZ, the star was agitated during the day, so her parents went over to her home.
Locklear got violent, choking her mother and hitting her father. Her mother called the police.
According to the dispatch audio obtained by the tabloid website, The Melrose Place alum was trying to find a gun to shoot herself.
The TV icon was later taken to hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.
The incident is being ruled as medical, not criminal.
Locklear is currently not being charged on any counts.
This hasn’t been a good year for the actress.
Back in February, the TJ Hooker star was arrested for domestic violence against her boyfriend and battery on a police officer after she threatened to shoot officers if they ever returned to her home.
