The American press claims the star was also hospitalised...

COURTNEY LOVE has been arrested for allegedly being under the influence of a narcotic after police responded to a burglary call, according to US press reports.

Love was found early yesterday (October 2) outside a friend’s house where she had allegedly broken windows in an attempt to enter.

The NY Daily News reports that Love was taken to the local police station where was booked as Courtney Michelle Cobain on an allegation of being under the influence of a controlled substance. She was then released on $2,500 bail, according to the LAPD.

An hour later, Love was taken to hospital after police and paramedics responded to a call for help at a private residence. After reportedly being treated for a drugs overdose, she was released by midday yesterday.

A UK spokesperson for the star has been unable to confirm either the arrest, or the hospitalisation to NME.COM.
