Heather Locklear Arrested for Domestic Violence, Battery on Police Officer

Heather Locklear was arrested on Sunday night in Thousand Oaks, Calif., on suspicion of domestic violence and battery on a police officer, Capt. Dean Cook of the Thousand Oaks Police Department told Variety.

Locklear, 56, was charged with one count of domestic violence — a felony — and three counts of battery on emergency personnel, which are misdemeanors.

Police responded to the scene around 9:40 p.m. According to the Los Angeles Times, Locklear claimed an injury prior to cops’ arrival and was taken to a hospital before she was booked at Ventura County Jail. She has since posted $20,000 in bail.

According to audio of the 911 call obtained by TMZ, Locklear’s brother called the police after coming to her home, and finding Locklear and her boyfriend arguing. TMZ also reports that the actress kicked three deputies who tried putting her in custody.

“She was extremely hostile and uncooperative and at one point became combative with the deputies,” Sgt. Eric Buschow of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office told the Times.

The former “Melrose Place” star has been in trouble with the law before. She was arrested in 2008 on suspicion of driving under the influence. Additionally, Locklear and ex-fiancé Jack Wagner were ordered to appear in court in 2012 after an alleged violent fight.

Locklear’s rep did not respond to a request for comment.

The “Spin City” alum recently returned to TV for a guest-starring role in Tyler Perry’s TLC drama “Too Close to Home.”
