Heather Locklear enters treatment after domestic violence arrest

Heather Locklear enters treatment after domestic violence arrest

Heather Locklear is in a treatment facility following her arrest last month for one count felony domestic violence and three counts misdemeanor battery on a police officer.

Police had reason to believe that the former Melrose Place actress was armed during the altercation with her boyfriend, Chris Heisser. Locklear was reportedly "combative, flailing, kicking" when officers tried to take her into custody, reports said.

The source continued, "She physically fought the police and they had to handcuff her to control her".

An investigation into Locklear revealed she had a firearm registered in her name. "She also thinks her boyfriend [Chris Heisser] has blown everything out of proportion".

Astori made his Italian debut in 2011 and played at the 2013 Confederations Cup in Brazil, where he scored against Uruguay. He joined the latter on a permanent basis in 2016 and made 57 appearances for the Florence squad, scoring three times.

We'll keep you updated on Locklear's status, but we're happy to hear she's hopefully getting the help she needs. The Associated Press said last week that she had been released and was due in court on March 13, but TMZ reported Wednesday that Locklear is still undergoing treatment at an unnamed facility.

ET has reached out to Heisser, as well as representatives for Locklear, including her attorney, for comment.

'I don't know when she got the handgun, but I do know that yes, she did make that statement to the police the night that she was arrested, ' Sergeant Eric Buschow from the Ventura County Sheriff's Office told Us Weekly. She posted $20,000 bail and was released the following day.

Locklear has a history of trouble with the law and problems with substance abuse, having been arrested in 2008 on suspicion of DUI (the charge was later reduced to reckless driving) and been in and out of rehab multiple times.
