Actress Shannen Doherty called the police on Sunday night (11Nov12) to report a potentially-suicidal Twitter.com fan. The Beverly Hills, 90210 star phoned officials at the Westampton Township Police Department in New Jersey to alert them to a female follower who threatened to kill herself if she did not receive a phone call from the actress. Cops dispatched a team of detectives to the woman's house to investigate the matter, but they later determined the 27 year old, who was at home with her family, was not at risk of doing any harm to herself, reports TMZ.com. Relieved by the news, Doherty took to her social networking account to thank law enforcement chiefs for their prompt attention, writing in a post, "Thank you to the Westampton police department for being diligent and so reassuring."
