The ‘Spin City’ alum, who was making a guest-appearance in TLC drama ‘’Too Close to Home’’, is not a stranger when it comes to getting in trouble with the law.
Actress Heather Locklear, 56, was arrested in Thousand Oaks California on Saturday on suspicion of felony domestic violence, revealed the Sheriff Office of the Ventura County.
The Sheriff Spokesman, Capt. Garo Kuredjian said that at approximately 10 p.m., police deputies on duty received a report regarding a domestic dispute ongoing at that time at the 4900 Block of Summit View Drive.
On receiving the report, the deputies tried to contact the 56-year-old actress, but she was completely uncooperative towards their investigation, as per Kuredjian. He further stated that the police have visible evidence that before her arrest, Locklear had committed the offense of felony by battering her boyfriend.
Authorities refused to release the details of the boyfriend who made the call to the police.
In addition to being uncooperative with the police, the police says, Locklear was also combative towards them. “She was kicking at and pushing our deputies,” Kuredjian was quoted as saying by the Associated Press.
After being arrested at her house, Police took Locklear to the local hospital, and only after she declared fit did the police booked Locklear into the Ventura County jail.
The veteran actress was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence as well as three counts of battery against a serving police offer, said Dean Cook, sheriff’s Captain.
However, after submitting a bond, Locklear was released around 6 a.m. Monday morning, but she has to appear in the court on March the 13th.
This is not the first time that Locklear is finding herself on the wrong side of the law. Last September, Locklear sustained moderate injuries after involving herself in a vehicle crash in Thousand Oaks.
Apart from her famous role in Spin City, Locklear is also recognized for her part in the TV program Melrose Place.
