Heather Locklear Arrested for Domestic Violence

Heather Locklear was arrested on Sunday night for felony domestic violence and battery on a police officer.

According to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department, a domestic violence call came in around 9:40 PM on Sunday. Officers responded to her home in Thousand Oaks and say she was “extremely agitated, uncooperative and antagonistic” before they could even start the investigation.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department says Heather “battered her boyfriend and he suffered a visible injury” before their arrival. As they tried to take Locklear into custody, she kicked and hit three deputies as they were bringing her to the vehicle and she remained “agitated and extremely uncooperative.”

Locklear was eventually charged with felony domestic battery and three counts of attacking an officer. The sheriff says they had to bring her to the hospital because she claimed that she was injured earlier in the day, but she was cleared at the hospital.

She was arrested at 10:27 PM on Sunday and eventually booked at 1:03 AM. The former “Melrose Place” star was taken to the Ventura County Jail where she posted bail a short time later. She was released at 5:48 AM on Monday.

Locklear is set to appear in court on March 13.
