Spin City star Heather Locklear was arrested and charged with felony domestic violence and battery on a police officer. According to TMZ, the incident took place on Sunday, Feb. 25 when cops responded to a domestic violence call at her Thousand Oaks, CA home.
During the arrest, Heather, 56, allegedly got violent and attacked a police officer. This resulted in three counts of misdemeanor battery. There is no information on who Heather allegedly assaulted and she is currently in the process of posting bail. Just two days ago, she posted a photo on Instagram with her pup on the way to Boston. She was also recently starring in the Tyler Perry TV series Too Close to Home.
Heather has a history of substance abuse and was arrested for a DUI in 2008. Ultimately, the DUI charge was dropped but two years later she was arrested again for a hit-and-run accident. Last year, the veteran actress opened up about her past struggles and claimed to be feeling better than ever. “I am feeling great and am taking steps to enrich and better my life,” she told [Entertainment Tonight](http://www.etonline.com/tv/211036exclusiveheatherlocklearpokesfunatrumoredpastsubstanceabusestrugglesonfreshofftheboat). “Currently, I am working on tying up some loose ends regarding certain issues, so I can hit 2017 full steam ahead.”
Heather was previously married to rocker Tommy Lee and Bon Jovi musician Richie Sambora, with whom she shares 20-year-old daughter Ava Sambora. In a recent exclusive interview with Closer Weekly, one of Heather’s close friends revealed the actress is now dating her ex-fiancé Larry Porush and thinks he’s “the one.”
Heather and Larry first met on a blind date back in 2012 and were engaged in 2013, but later called it off. “Heather is a hopeless romantic and when she falls in love, she goes all-in to make it work,” the source revealed. According to the insider, the relationship is progressing well and Heather has revealed in the past that she would like to be married again. “Part of me probably would do it tomorrow,” Heather has said. Now that the couple has reunited, the insider added, “Heather is back to feeling he is the one.”
