Here’s why Heather Locklear was arrested for domestic abuse

Heather Locklear TNT 25 Anniversary

Heather Locklear — she of “Melrose Place” and apparently one episode of “Fresh Off the Boat” — was arrested on Sunday night for domestic violence and battery on a police officer.

According to TMZ, police responded to a call about domestic violence at a home in Thousand Oaks, California. When they arrived, Locklear became combative and allegedly attacked a police officer.

According to the 911 call, Locklear’s brother came to her home and witnessed her fighting with her boyfriend. When the police tried putting her in custody, she became combative, flailing and kicking — and striking three deputies in the process. She was later cuffed and taken to the hospital for evaluation.

This isn’t the first time the actress has been involved in a domestic dispute. In 2011, the LAPD came to the home of Jack Wagner — her former boyfriend — after the two of them allegedly got physical during an argument. At the time, a cop told TMZ, “She lost it on him and he retaliated.” Neither of them pressed charges.

 As of Monday, Locklear has posted the $20,000 bail.
