Heather Locklear Arrested for Domestic Violence

Actress Heather Locklear has been arrested at her home following a domestic dispute between her and her boyfriend according to police. Ventura County police were called to the home of Locklear and found her in a visibly distressed state.


The call to 911 was placed by Mark Locklear, Heather’s brother. TMZ report that Mark explained to police that an argument had broken out between the couple. Locklear, who is perhaps best known for starring in Melrose Place, reportedly flailed at police and kicked them as she was arrested, leading to an additional 3 counts of misdemeanor and battery of an officer on top of the domestic charges.

CNN report that Locklear was admitted to hospital before later being moved to jail. She had sustained some minor injuries in the altercation. Police will not release information about the identity of her current boyfriend, but we do know that police were called to a house in Thousand Oaks, California.


After the police arrived at the home following the 911 call they saw that Locklear’s boyfriend had sustained a visible injury. A similar incident occurred back in 2011 when Heather Locklear and her boyfriend at the time Jack Wagner had the police called on them following an argument that became physical. Police said at the time that neither Locklear nor Wagner would press charges so the case was dropped. The story is different in 2018 as Locklear is currently posting bail.

Sargent Eric Buschow of the Ventura County Police Department talked to CNN when Locklear was arrested, saying that she was physically combative and extremely uncooperative with the police that arrived at the house. Her bail was posted at $20,000. The actress has been faced with numerous challenges in the past, including when she was admitted to hospital following taking a mixture of drugs and alcohol in 2012.

The event from 2012 happened a year after she and Jack Wagner broke off their engagement. Locklear’s last television project was in the TV mini-series Close to Home in which she played First Lady Katelynn Christian. The actress was a major female icon in the 90s, adorning the walls of the bedrooms of teenage boys across the country.

Locklear’s career began with her work on the TV show Dynasty during the 1980s. Since then she has appeared in a range of different TV shows. There’s currently no word on what will happen following the arrest. She may have charges placed against her but nothing is for sure right now. There has also been no word from her brother Mark about what has happened since she was arrested. We may not get any answers until she appears in court on March 13th, 2018 for the incident, which itself took place on February 25th, 2018.
