RadarOnline.com can reveal troubled actress Heather Locklear has headed back to the hospital after she went off the rails again and was tossed behind bars in Los Angeles Sunday night.
“She is going to UCLA for treatment and another psych evaluation,” a source told Radar.
Locklear, echoed a second insider, “has to detox” and “then do a mental evaluation to try to accurately figure out what is going on.”
“The family feels they can’t do anything,” added the insider. “They are all helpless.”
As Radar reported, Locklear, 56, was released on bail from jail this morning, hours after she allegedly assaulted a cop and kicked an EMT responding to a boozy family feud at her L.A. home.
The disturbing events come on the heels of Locklear recently fleeing detox, where she was supposed to stay for five days after she attacked her parents and threatened to commit suicide.
“Heather said she was kidding about the gun and threatening to kill herself so they let her out,” said the insider.
According to the source, family hoped at the time to have the struggling star placed on a 5250 hold, which would have made her stay at the facility mandatory for two weeks.
“Then from there they could have gone to court and get a 30-day hold,” explained the insider.
Unfortunately for worried friends and family, Locklear, who has gone to rehab multiple times, has managed to outsmart the system.
“The problem is that Heather’s medical record is hard to trace,” the insider told Radar.
“She jumps from doctor to doctor so it is difficult for a psychiatrist to make a proper evaluation. There is no consistent backlog to trace.”
“She pays in cash or simply changes doctors,” continued the insider. “It works against her because she is not getting the help she needs.”
Locklear’s next court date is scheduled for August 23 at 8:15 am.
