Heather Locklear has checked herself back into treatment, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.

The troubled actress, 57, was court-ordered to enter a facility in order to avoid jail time in her bombshell battery case.

Last week, she pleaded no contest to eight misdemeanor charges of battery and resisting officers.

As a result, she was ordered to spend 30 days in a residential treatment program to avoid jail.

After her August 16 court hearing, the unhinged star returned home, and was given until September 6 to enroll in the treatment facility.

Locklear also will be placed on an informal probation for three years, which means she doesn’t have to check in with a probation officer.

Under the terms of her sentence, Locklear cannot consume alcohol, take non-prescription medication, or possess dangerous or deadly weapons, Senior Deputy District Attorney Thomas Dunlevy told Radar exclusively last week.

Locklear’s misdemeanors included five counts of battery on a peace officer, one count of battery on an emergency personnel, and two counts of resisting arrest, according to Ventura County District Attorney prosecutors.

The sentence stems from a February 2018 arrest where she allegedly attacked her boyfriend and a police officer while under the influence.

In her June 2018 arrest, she allegedly went after a officer and EMT while intoxicated.
