Actress Heather Locklear was arrested Sunday night in Thousand Oaks, Calif., after officers responded to a domestic violence call, TMZ reports.
The report says the former “Dynasty” and “Melrose Place” star is accused of felony domestic violence and battery on a police officer.
She was reportedly booked into the Ventura County Jail, where she was later released on bail, according to media reports.
“During the arrest she allegedly became combative and attacked a cop. As a result, she was also arrested on 3 counts of misdemeanor battery on an officer,” TMZ reports.
“According to the 911 call, Heather’s brother came to her home and saw Heather and her boyfriend fighting. The brother called 911. We’re told cops observed that the boyfriend had a visible mark,” TMZ reports. “Law enforcement sources tell us when cops tried putting Heather in custody she became combative, flailing, kicking and struck 3 deputies. Heather was cuffed and taken to the hospital for evaluation.”
The report adds that Locklear, 56, “has had troubles in the past with substance abuse … she has been arrested for DUI and had issues with prescription drugs.” Locklear has also been involved in domestic violence investigations in the past, the report adds.
