Actress Heather Locklear was taken to a Southern California hospital for precautionary reasons after an emergency call was made from her home.

Paramedics and sheriff’s deputies responded to Locklear’s home in Westlake Village, which is 35 miles north west of Los Angeles.

Ventura County sheriff’s Captain Mike Aranda said he did not know Locklear’s condition but deputies are not investigating the incident.

Locklear has been taken to hospital several times over the years and in 2009 pleaded no contest to reckless driving after being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of prescription medication.

The 50-year-old actress’ publicists did not return messages seeking comment.

Locklear and Melrose Place co-star Jack Wagner recently ended their engagement.
