Heather Locklear was taken to emegency as a result of 911 call

Famous TV show "Dynasty" 1981-1989 star Heather Locklear was hospitalized on emergency Thursday afternoon, Jan 12 after police responded to a frantic 911 call by her older sister. Paramedics and sheriff's deputies responded to the actress's Los Angeles area home around 2 p.m. and determined Locklear needed further medical attention Locklear, 50, was then taken by ambulance to the Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center in Thousand Oaks, Calif., where she stayed overnight and is now said to be resting comfortably, with family by her side.

"She is in no danger and she's going to be just fine," her parents Bill and Diane Locklear said in a statement issued by the hospital. Los Robles spokesperson Kris Carraway-Bowman told People magazine the actress arrived at 2:30 p.m. and by 8 p.m. was sleeping.

Neither the hospital nor Locklear's family are releasing information on what caused her hospitalization, but RadarOnline reports she may have mixed alcohol and prescription medication. She was rehaved two times, once for depression and once for prescription medication.

Depression over the break up from the longtime boyfriend, and former co-star, Jack Wagner in November also can cause physical hazzard. Locklear was previously married to Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora, whom she divorced in 2006. Two years after her divorce from Sambora, in 2008, Locklear was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of prescription medication.  She pleaded no contest to reckless driving. Two years after that, in 2010, Locklear was cited with a misdemeanor charge for a hit-and-run accident in which she ran her car into a street sign.
