Heather Locklear Can No Longer Own A Gun After Charges She Battered A Police Officer
The "Melrose Place" actress has been banned from carrying a gun.
Heather Locklear is no longer allowed to carry a firearm. The actress, known for her role in "Melrose Place" is facing charges related to allegedly attacking a police officer when she was arrested in February. The decision was confirmed by Ventura County District Attorney Tom Dunlevy to People.
The 56-year-old allegedly attacked police when they responded to a domestic violence incident at her Thousand Oaks, California home on February 25. Locklear was initially facing charges for allegedly hitting her boyfriend, Chris Heisser. During the arrest, she reportedly freaked out and began hurling verbal and physical blows to the responding officers. As such, she faces four counts of misdemeanor battery on a police officer and one charge of resisting or obstructing a police officer.
The charge around attacking Heisser has been dropped. During her arrest, she alleged that he choked her and threatened to kill her.
“Locklear told Deputy Alldredge that [Heisser] had strangled her and that she was afraid he would kill her,” the police report said. “Locklear stated she did not lose consciousness, but was strangled for a long time and thought she might pass out.”
He denied those allegations, per the report. "I didn’t touch her."
As previously reported, Locklear threatened officers with insults like, "You f*cking deserve your kids to die! You f*cking deserve it. And when you find yourself in that position, think of me!"
Her behavior was cited by officers as "combative, belligerent, and aggressive."
“I hope no one f*cking burns your entire department down, your f*cking police department,'" she allegedly told police, according to their follow-up report. “Get the f*ck off my property. Don’t ever come on it. All of you are not allowed … I will shoot you if you come on my property and take that as a threat and f*cking put another count against me.'"
Locklear did have a legally registered gun. However, authorities were unable to find it following a search. Since the arrest, the actress reportedly checked into rehab.
Locklear's attorney appeared in court on Tuesday on her behalf, CNN reports. Her arraignment was continued to April 13.
