Heather Locklear Arrested After Allegedly Beating Boyfriend
US Actress Heather Locklear has been arrested for investigation of domestic violence and fighting with sheriff's deputies at her California home, authorities say.
Deputies responded to a domestic disturbance on Sunday in Thousand Oaks, west of Los Angeles, Ventura County sheriff's Capt. Garo Kuredjian said.
The victim of the alleged domestic violence was a boyfriend who had a physical injury, which made the offence a felony, Kuredjian said.
Locklear was uncooperative with the deputies and became combative, he added.
"She was kicking at and pushing our deputies," he said..
She was also arrested on three misdemeanour counts of battery on a peace officer.
Locklear said she had been injured prior to the deputies' arrival and was taken to a hospital and cleared medically before being booked into county jail.
She was released on US$20,000 bail and is due in court on March 13.
A lawyer for Locklear declined comment.
The 56-year-old actress was among the biggest stars on television in the 1980s and 1990s, with roles on Dynasty, T.J. Hooker and Melrose Place.
Authorities did not release the name of the boyfriend who was involved in the call.
