As previously reported, the 56-year-old Melrose Place star pleaded not guilty to four misdemeanor counts of battery on an officer, and one misdemeanor count of resisting arrest in April. She faces five years in prison, and will return to court on August 9.

After completing a two-month rehab stint, Locklear appeared to be doing well — until she was rushed to the hospital after allegedly threatening to shoot herself on June 17.

Heather Locklear’s Breakdown

Sources told she choked her mother and hit her father before her parents called 911, fearful for her safety.

Two days prior, cops were called after Locklear got into a public argument with her fiancé, Chris Heisser. A source told she physically attacked and injured Heisser earlier that day.

However, cops did not witness any violence during the June 15 incident, and the June 17 call was only a medical issue not criminal, so she was not charged with any crime.

Locklear is still believed to be in the hospital on a 5150 hold.
