Captain Mike Aranda, a spokesman for the Ventura County Sheriff's Department, told TheWrap that Locklear was conscious when authorities arrived.

Paramedics determined she needed to be sent to a local hospital.

The hospitalization is the latest troubling incident involving Locklear. In March 2008, emergency responders went to her home after it was believed she had tried to commit suicide. That June, she checked into a medical facility for anxiety and depression.

Locklear was arrested on suspicion of DUI in September 2008, but the charge was later dismissed after she pleaded no contest to reckless driving.

The actress' latest project was a starring role in Lifetime's "He Loves Me," a movie that aired in 2011.
