Actress Heather Locklear, 56, was arrested Sunday in Thousand Oaks, Calif. on suspicion of felony domestic violence, according to the Ventura County Sheriff's Office.
At approximately 10 p.m., deputies responded to the 4900 block of Summit View Drive regarding a domestic disturbance report, said sheriff's spokesman Capt. Garo Kuredjian.
Deputies contacted Locklear at which time she became uncooperative, Kuredjian said. He said that there was visible evidence that Locklear had battered her boyfriend, which makes the offense a felony.
Authorities did not release the name of the boyfriend who was involved in the call.
Locklear also allegedly was uncooperative with the deputies and became combative. “She was kicking at and pushing our deputies,” Kuredjian told the Associated Press.
Locklear was arrested and medically cleared at a local hospital before she was booked into Ventura County jail.
Actress, producer Heather Locklear through the years
The longtime actress was booked on suspicion of three misdemeanor counts of battery against a police officer in addition to domestic violence, said sheriff's Capt. Dean Cook.
Locklear was released on bond just before 6 a.m. Monday but is due in court on March 13.
In September, Locklear was involved in a vehicle crash in Thousand Oaks in which she received moderate injuries.
Locklear is best known for her roles on the television programs Melrose Place and Spin City.
Locklear has been married twice – to Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora from 1986 to 1993 and to Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee from 1994 to 2007. An engagement to fellow Melrose Place actor Jack Wagner was called off in 2011.
The representative on record for Locklear said she was not currently an active client; her manager did not immediately reply to USA TODAY's request for comment.
