Heather Locklear's downward spiral hit a new low Sunday night when she was arrested at her home for punching a cop who'd responded to a call about a domestic disturbance.
The troubled actress, who just last week was hospitalized for a psychological evaluation after reportedly threatening to shoot herself, was locked up on two counts of battery and held on $20,000 bail. Police received a 911 call from a family member who said Locklear was intoxicated and extremely agitated. As an officer was trying to pull her away from family members, she allegedly punched him.
Paramedics were called, and they strapped her to a gurney and took her to the hospital -- and later to jail. She's also accused of kicking an EMT in the process.
It's been a rough year for Locklear. Back in February, she was arrested for felony domestic violence against her boyfriend and threatened to shoot officers if they ever returned to her home.
