Heather Locklear is in trouble with the law…again.
One week after the Melrose Place star was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold, E! News has confirmed she has been arrested for battery on a police officer and emergency personnel.
Police arrested Locklear at 11:30 p.m. Sunday and booked her hours later at 2:01 a.m. TMZ, which first reported news of the actress’ arrest, described the TV star as “Extremely agitated” after a family member first called 911 to report a disturbance.
According to the outlet, Locklear “Punched a responding deputy” who was trying to separate her from other “Members of her family.” Paramedics arrived on the scene, and “She kicked an EMT” while being put on a gurney.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office told Fox News she appeared “Heavily intoxicated” and was “Arguing with other subjects at the residence” as officers arrived on the scene.
Locklear was arrested in February for felony domestic violence against her boyfriend, Chris Heisser, but was only charged with misdemeanor battery on a peace officer; police had responded to a call about a domestic disturbance, where the actress threatened to shoot any officer who returned to her home.
