On Sunday, Feb. 24, actress Heather Locklear was arrested for felony domestic violence that allegedly occurred in her home in Thousand Oaks, California.
According to TMZ, the actress' brother was the one who called the police after he heard Locklear and her former boyfriend fighting.
T.J. Hooker Behind Bars
The Melrose Place actress reportedly got into a physical altercation with her ex-significant other, Jack Wagner, that left marks on his face. When the police arrived on the scene, the officers tried to handcuff Locklear, who "became combative, flailing, kicking and struck three deputies," TMZ stated.
Because Locklear also assaulted the officers, the TJ Hooker star was also charged with three counts of misdemeanor battery on a police officer.
The actress was taken into custody and a hospital for a mental evaluation. Locklear was booked at 1:03 a.m. and made bail at 5:43 a.m. The actress is set to appear back in court on Mar. 13.
Locklear's Troubled History
This isn't the actress' first run-in with the law. Locklear was pulled over for driving under the influence in September 2008. She was sentenced to three years of informal probation, a DMV driver safety class, and a $700 fine.
In March 2008, emergency responders were sent to the actress' home after someone called 911 stating that Locklear was trying to commit suicide. The Money Talks actress was checked in to a medical facility in Arizona for psychological ailments in June 2008.
In July 2012, Locklear's sister called 911 after she believed that the actress was in danger after taking a dangerous amount of drugs and consuming alcohol. Locklear was transported to the hospital and was later released that day.
The actress is best known for her roles in Spin City, Hot in Cleveland, Franklin & Bash, Looney Tunes: Back in Action, and The Perfect Man.
Her first major role was on the show Dynasty where she portrayed Sammy Jo Carrington from 1981 to 1989. Following her time on Dynasty, the actress gained further acclaim for her portrayals of Amanda Woodward on Melrose Place and Officer Stacey Sheridan on T.J. Hooker.
Locklear was married to Motley Crue member Tommy Lee from 1986 to 1993. In 1994, she married Bon Jovi member Richie Sambora with whom she has a daughter, Ava. Sambora and Locklear divorced in 2006.
