Former “Melrose Place” star Heather Locklear is in trouble with the law again. The 56-year-old was arrested for battery on a police officer. Police took Locklear and booked her for two counts of misdemeanor battery upon an officer and emergency personnel, Page Six confirmed. This is the second time that Locklear has been arrested for battery on police officers. Back in April, she pleaded not guilty to charges that she attacked a police officer who answered a domestic violence call at her Southern California Home in February.
According to TMZ the “Dynasty” actress was arrested after a call was made to her house. The “Melrose Place” star reportedly was intoxicated and agitated and punched an officer who attempted to separate her from her family. While paramedics put her on the gurney, Locklear kicked an EMT. She was transported to a hospital for evaluation and then taken to jail, where she was booked. She’s being held on $20,000 bail.
A week back Locklear had been placed in psychiatric hold after she allegedly threatened to kill herself because she thought her fiance was cheating on her. Additionally, Locklear and ex-fiance Jack Wagner were ordered to appear in court in 2012 after an alleged violent fight. Over the years, Locklear has sought treatment for depression and anxiety and reportedly went through drug rehabilitation after being hospitalized from mixing prescription drugs and alcohol.
Heather Locklear’s first major television role was the part of Sammy Jo Carrington on Dynasty from 1981 to 1989, which according to Wikipedia began her longtime collaboration with producer Aaron Spelling.
