By |

Courtney Love was arrested in Los Angeles yesterday on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance.

Love smashed several windows at a friend's Wilshire-area home prompting neighbors to call police, according to the Los Angeles Times. She was booked under the name Courtney Michelle Cobain and released on $2,500 bail at 5:30 a.m. yesterday.

Shortly after her release, Love made an emergency call and was taken by paramedics to Century City Hospital and treated for a possible overdose. She was released yesterday afternoon.

Love has been working on her debut solo album, America's Sweetheart. The record was initially scheduled for an October 28th release, but was recently pushed back to February 2004. Love also intended to tour this fall; no dates had been set and the status of the tour is uncertain.
