Heather Locklear Arrested in Domestic Violence Incident

Locklear, who was one of the biggest TV stars of the '80s and '90s with roles on Dynasty, T.J. Hooker, Melrose Place and Spin City, has struggled with depression and substance abuse for many years, and has had domestic disputes that led to police intervention in the past and most recently entered rehab last year for the 5th time. "She physically fought the police and they had to handcuff her to control her".

She returned back home in July 2008 after successfully completing four weeks of treatment - but was arrested two months later on suspicion of driving under the influence in California.

She has since been released on bail but faces a felony charge for domestic violence and three misdemeanor counts of battery of emergency personnel. "Were also found evidence that she beat her boyfriend", said a police officer. But it seems they are meant to live separately.

According to TMZ, officers responded to a domestic violence call in Thousand Oaks, and Locklear reportedly became combative during the arrest and attacked an officer.

"She was immediately uncooperative. His blood alcohol was.19".

She is also widely known for portraying Amanda Woodward on another American soap, Melrose Place, for which she earned four consecutive Golden Globe nominations.

As previously reported, while attempting to cuff Heather Locklear [VIDEO], she turned combative to officers and began swinging and kicking as they tried to place her in the squad vehicle.

Inside sources allegedly told the celebrity news site that Sambora was very upset and left traumatized by her mother's violent altercation with boyfriend Chris Heisser.

Locklear has been married twice - to Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee from 1986 to 1993 and to Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora from 1994 to 2007.

Locklear is set to appear in court on March 13.
