Heather Locklear arrested for domestic violence and battery of police officer

Heather Locklear has been arrested for battery of a police officer and suspicion of domestic violence.

As TMZ reports, the Melrose Place actress’ brother Mark arrived at her California home at Thousand Oaks to find her fighting with her boyfriend.

The police were called before they “observed that the boyfriend had a visible mark”. When they attempted to apprehend Locklear, she resisted and struck three deputies. She was then hospital for evaluation before being booked into Ventura County jail.

She has since been released on bail but faces a felony charge for domestic violence and three misdemeanor counts of battery of emergency personnel.

Heather Locklear arrives at the screening of 'Too Close to Home' at The Paley Center for Media on August 16, 2016 in Beverly Hills, California.
