In July, one of her family members had alleged that she is behaving abnormally and erratically. She had also threatened to hurt self and was admitted to a hospital for observation and treatment. The same month she was arrested when she punched a sheriff ‘s deputy and also kicked an EMT. The charges levied on here were two counts of misdemeanor battery on a police officer and emergency personnel.
After a few hours of her arrest, she needed hospitalization for an apparent overdose. An insider at that time said:

“She didn’t want to leave her home to get further treatment that she had agreed to get earlier in the day, Authorities were called when Heather said she had taken prescription medication and there [were] concerns she had taken more than she had been prescribed.”

She then entered a long-term rehab plan. However, the paramedic whom she had attacked in June was Jennifer Hayn-Hilton and she decided to sue Heather now. She said that Heather had been nasty with her and that she had ‘struck, kicked and battered’. Jennifer also said that Heather had cursed her that her children should all die of AIDS.
