On the same day that she and Ellen DeGeneres announced they had ended their 3 1/2 year relationship, Anne Heche was briefly hospitalized after walking in a confused state to a home in Fresno, California.

According to police, Heche called for an ambulance after walking up to a stranger’s home. She was taken to Fresno’s University Medical Center suffering from “medical issues”.

She was treated and released. The unknown “issues” weren’t too serious as she apparently boarded a plane bound for Toronto on Monday morning so that she could start shooting a new movie with Denzel Washington.
