Former 90s hit television series Melrose Place star Heather Locklear was arrested on Sunday night in Thousand Oaks, California, on suspicion of domestic violence and battery on a police officer.
The actress allegedly nearly bit her boyfriend’s nose in the midst of a drunken rage. She is also being accused of attacking the three cops who responded to break up the couple’s fight on Sunday.
A source in the Ventura police department said that Locklear was “wasted” when she got into a fight with her high school sweetheart Chris Heisser whom she recently reconnected with. The same source said the popular 90s series Melrose Place star practically “bit the tip off Heisser’s nose.”
She then instructed a woman who works with her to call the cops. When the cops arrived and tried to put her in handcuffs, Locklear snapped and attacked three of the four officers. The source said Locklear punched the lady cop and called her a ct, kicked one of the male cops in his private part and punched the third male cop and called them all “f**** assholes” and ranted at them.
56-year-old Locklear was charged with one count of domestic violence, considered a felony, and three counts of battery on emergency personnel, which are misdemeanors.
Entertainment site TMZ, on the other hand, obtained an audio of the 911 call made by Locklear’s brother. That was after the brother came to Locklear’s home and found her arguing with her boyfriend.
Police arrived on the scene at around 9:40 p.m. Locklear, however, claimed an injury prior to the cops’ arrival and was taken to a hospital before she was booked at Ventura County Jail. She has posted US$20,000 in bail.
TMZ also reported that the actress allegedly kicked three deputies who first tried to put her in custody. Sgt. Eric Buschow of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that the celebrity was extremely hostile and uncooperative with them and even became aggressive and combative at one point.
This is not the first time that the star got in trouble with the law. She was arrested in 2008 on suspicion of driving under the influence. Locklear and her ex-fiance Jack Wagner were ordered to appear in court in 2012 after an alleged violent fight.
Locklear’s representative did not respond to media requests for comment on the latest incident and controversy involving the troubled actress.
