Heather Locklear has been placed on 5150 psychiatric hold

Heather Locklear has been placed on a 5150 hold after allegedly beating up her boyfriend and throwing him out of her house on Sunday, a family source tells

This is a developing story.

The news comes months after the troubled actress was arrested over a string of incidents involving alcohol and domestic violence.

Locklear, 57, was arrested most recently in June, after downing a bottle of tequila and crashing her car into a pylon on the grounds of her California home.

She then attacked the cops when they arrived to calm her down and was arrested and booked into Ventura County Jail on police battery charges.

She was released the following day but was rushed to hospital a little over six hours later after allegedly taking an overdose. Locklear was placed on a 5250 psychiatric hold, which lasts for up to 14 days and includes a five-day detox as well as mental evaluation.

That arrest came exactly a week after Locklear was cuffed and taken to hospital after choking her mother Diane, 85, and threatening to shoot herself.
