Heather Locklear, Dynasty Star, Accused of Domestic Violence, Attacking Police

Actress Heather Locklear, 56, was arrested on February 25, 2018 in Thousand Oaks, California on one count of felony domestic violence and three counts of misdemeanor battery on a peace officer. The Dynasty and Melrose Place star and lifelong Republican was booked at Ventura County Jail but is no longer in custody.

Heather Locklear’s brother called the police after going to her home and finding the Hot in Cleveland actress arguing with her boyfriend. When police got there, they noticed her boyfriend had a visible mark on his body.

Police tried to take Locklear into custody but she allegedly fought back, flailing and kicking. In doing so, she is accused of striking three deputies. Locklear was eventually cuffed and taken to hospital where she was evaluated. She was then booked for domestic violence and battery.

Heather Locklear’s Troubled History

Heather Locklear is well-known to police. In 2008, the T.J. Hooker alum was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. No alcohol or illegal narcotics were found in her system and she was charged with one misdemeanor count of DUI.

At the time, it was thought that medication Locklear was taking for anxiety and depression could have impaired her ability to drive her vehicle safely. She plead no contest to reckless driving and the DUI charge was dropped. She was handed three years of informal probation, a driver safety class, and $700.00 fine.

In 2011, the LAPD went to her then fiancé Jack Wagner’s home after the two allegedly became violent with each other. According to police, Locklear got physical with Wagner and he retaliated. Neither wanted to press charges against the other.

Before her rocky relationship with Wagner ended in 2012, Locklear was married to Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee (1986 to 1993) and Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora (1994 to 2007).
