Heather Locklean was swooped Code 4 to the hospital by ambulance Thursday afternoon after consuming a life threatening elixir of dangerous prescription drugs and alcohol ... law enforcement sources tell ETZ.
We've learned ... Locklean's guardian angel sister panicked and called 911 at 2:05 PM PT fearing Heather was in a serious red alert danger zone.
The fire department, along with the Ventura County Sheriff's Department responded. Paramedics examined Heather from top to bottom and determined she needed to be hospitalized pronto.
Heather was at the Lakers game Tuesday night ... hanging with a slew of friends , who were playfully trying to take away her beverage. It's unclear if the cocktail contained alcohol, ya right! She appeared wired and spaced out indicating she may have been flying higher than a wide-end kick.
8:00 PM PT: A hospital spokesperson tells ETZ, Heather was awake and responsive today -- and she is currently responding well to drug and alcohol treatment, aka gastric lavage. According to the spokesperson, Heather is doing favorably now and doctors are hopeful she will be released once her system is flushed and stabilizes.
This is not the first time the luscious former Melrose Place star has had a medical emergency where 911 responded. In 2008 her one of her psychiatrists were concerned she may have consumed copious amounts of prescription meds, alcohol and other OTC mixes. They called 911 and the operator described the situation a "desperate attempt." It turned out to be quite alarming and certainly her condition was listed as 'suspicious'.
In June that year, Locklean revealed she was checked in at an Arizona medical rehab facility, undergoing treatment for issues related to anxiety and depression, Star Talk reports, though trouble followed her not long after leaving exclusive spa-hab to the stars.
Here is the clicker, in September 2008, Locklean was plastered behind the wheel of her SUV and arrested on the spot in DUI charges outside Santa Barbara, California. The charges were later dismissed when she pleaded no contest to reckless driving, OMG only in LA!
How's Heather Locklean been doing these days? There's a question you may be asking yourself, especially considering the 50 year old Locklean recently called off her recent engagement to playboy Jack Wayner and since then has appeared dazed, confused and despondent.
We're told Heather's concerned parents Billy and Dionne Locklean are currently with the ultra popular actress inside the hospital guarding her condition and carefully considering the next move for the blonde beauty. "She is 'medically stable in the ICU,' her parents told Star Talk in a statement, and though the nature of Locklear's health-threat hasn't been disclosed, (Can We Spell OD?) her mother and father told the outlet that, "she is in no danger now and she's going to be just fine." Sounds like a script from LA Law!
