Heather Locklear, who starred in the '90s sitcom "Melrose Place"was arrested on Sunday following an alleged domestic dispute with her boyfriend, reports CNN.

Authorities were called to the Thousand Oaks, California home of the 56-year-old actress following a domestic incident between Locklear and her boyfriend Chris Hessier. She was booked on one count of felony domestic battery.

The arrest was called in by Locklear's brother, according to a 911 call obtained by TMZ.

Sargent Eric Buschow said that the actress was combative during the interaction with authorities, describing her as "extremely uncooperative and physically combative." She was booked on three counts of battery for allegedly attacking three responding Ventura County Sheriff's deputies.

“I don’t have any information as to whether or not an alcohol was involved, but she was extremely uncooperative right off the bat,” Buschow told People. “She became combative with the deputies to the point where she was arrested not only for felony domestic battery but three counts of battery on a police officer.”

The actress claimed that she had suffered an injury prior and was taken to the hospital before being booked. Her bail was then set at $20,000 and she has been subsequently released. She is slated to appear in court on March 13.

Locklear and Messier apparently knew each other since high school. The actress reconnected with her high school boyfriend last year, according to People, and they've been together since. Prior to that, Locklear was married to rocker Tommy Lee from 1986 to 1993. She was then married to musician Richie Sambora from 1994 to 2007. She has a 20-year-old daughter with Sambora.

CNN and People were not able to ascertain comment from the actress' representatives.
