Shannen Doherty - From 90210 to 999: Shannen Doherty Rescues Twitter Fan Threatening Suicide

Getting crazy messages from fans is all in a day’s work for Hollywood stars but alarm bells started ringing for Shannen Doherty on Sunday (November 11, 2012) when one of her Twitter followers threatened to commit suicide if the 90210 star didn’t telephone her. Sensing that there was cause for concern, Doherty called the cops and cooperated with a police force across the country, who went to the mystery tweeter’s home to check on her.

According to TMZ, Shannen had reason to believe that the fan had a gun and had threatened to kill herself if Doherty didn’t call her. The Westampton Township Police Department in New Jersey confirmed that Doherty managed to get the girl to reveal her home address and they were quickly dispatched to the property to check on her. What they found was a 27 year old woman, at home, in her bedroom. Other family members were also home.

The police spoke to the fan, who insisted that she had no desire to harm herself or take her own life. She was offered medical attention but declined it and eventually, the cops left, after satisfying themselves that her family would take care of her. Shannen posted a message on Twitter later on, commending the actions of the police force. It read “Thank you to the Westampton police department for being diligent and so reassuring” and later responded to her followers who had been inquiring into the drama, saying “Thanks gang. Police wasn't for me, was a girl on here who needed their help.” It might have been a false alarm this time but at least Shannen had the good sense to call the cops, just in case.
