Heather Locklear was taken to Los Robles Hospital on Thursday after her sister made a panicked call to 911, prompting concern that the former "Melrose Place" star was "out of control" and under a lethal mix of prescription drugs and alcohol. And though her family has reassured the media on Friday that the 50-year-old is "in no danger," they also reportedly want the troubled star to check into a medical rehabilitation center.
months later, in September, Locklear was arrested with suspicion of driving under the influence after a woman called the police with a report that the star had been "driving erratically."
Instead, he cited prescription medicine that "could have impaired ability to drive a motor vehicle safely."
The DUI charge was dismissed in January, 2009, when Locklear pleaded no contest to reckless driving and was sentenced to three years informal probation and a $700 fine.
In November 2011, Locklear and longtime boyfriend Jack Wagner called off their engagement.
A previous version of this article incorrectly stated Richie Sambora as the drummer of the band Bon Jovi. He is the guitarist.
