Musician-actress Courtney Love was hospitalized for a possible drug overdose following her arrest after allegedly breaking windows at a friend's house, the Los Angeles Times reported today (Oct. 3), citing police sources.

Love was booked for allegedly being under the influence of a controlled substance after police found her outside a Wilshire, Calif.,-area home, where she said she had broken four windows while trying to enter, said the Times.

Love, the founder of the band Hole, was released after being booked. But less than an hour later, Love was found at a private residence, following a call for help to Beverly Hills police and medics.

She was taken to Century City Hospital for treatment for a possible drug overdose, according to the newspaper, which said she was not at the hospital by midday yesterday.

A spokesperson for Love had not returned a call for comment at deadline. As previously reported, the artist's Virgin Records debut, "America's Sweetheart," was recently bumped from Oct. 28 to a Feb. 10 release.
