Former Melrose Place star Heather Locklear was arrested two weeks ago in Thousand Oaks, Calif., on one count of domestic violence and three counts of battery on a police officer and emergency personnel, and only now are more details emerging.
People magazine obtained the search warrant and the affidavit of probable cause documents prepared by Senior Deputy Sheriff Keith Hall, who used accounts from officers who were on-scene (Sergeant Camo, along with Deputy Officers Alldredge and Nesgis) in conjunction with body-cam footage to investigate Locklear’s arrest and the incidents that preceded it.
Locklear told officers on-scene that Heisser had “choked her” and “tried to kill” her. She also said the alleged choking “stopped her from breathing.”
Heisser denied that he ever choked her. In his report, Hall said that Heisser insisted he “didn’t touch her.”
Hall’s descriptions of Locklear’s behaviour during the investigation falls in line with Heisser’s accusations: Hall said that Locklear “exhibited combative, belligerent and aggressive” behaviour towards the deputy officers.
Locklear has multiple photos of her and Heisser on her Instagram page, and the couple seems to be very happy. “Thankful for you,” Locklear captions one image.
“My favorite person on earth. 40 years later,” she captions another.
“She continued to yell and scream at the deputies to leave her house while pacing back and forth in a very aggressive manner. Locklear yelled profanities at the deputies and tried to physically push Sergeant Camou and Deputy Nesgis with her hands out of the house,” it continued. Once put in handcuffs and on her stomach, Hall wrote that Locklear kicked Sergeant Camou, and they had no choice but to put a hobble around her ankles so she’d stop kicking.
At this point, Locklear’s rage seemed to escalate out of control.
“‘You f**ks deserve your kids to die! You f**king deserve it!'” Hall said Locklear told Deputy Nesgis. “‘And when you find yourself in that position, think of me!'”
“‘I hope no one f**king burns your entire department down, your f**king police department,'” Hall said Locklear said to deputies, according to the report. “Get the f**k 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**king put another count against me.'”
Police sought a search warrant in response to the “shoot” comment. While the actor does have a firearm registered in her name, police weren’t able to locate it in their search.
Hours after Locklear’s arrest, police arrested Heisser for DUI. (As of this writing, it’s not known how he’s pleaded.)
Since the incident, Locklear has entered treatment, with sources connected to the actor saying she’s entered rehab for drug addiction. (Global News couldn’t confirm this independently, though it has been verified that she’s in treatment.)
This isn’t the first time Locklear has had a run-in with law enforcement. She was arrested in 2008 for suspicion of driving under the influence, and in 2012, she and her ex-fiancé, fellow actor Jack Wagner, were ordered to appear in court after they had an allegedly violent altercation. Neither wanted to press charges against the other and the case wasn’t pursued any further.
This is the sixth time Locklear has entered rehab.
Last year, when she went to a facility for the fifth time, she said, “I am feeling great and am taking steps to enrich and better my life. Currently, I am working on tying up some loose ends regarding certain issues so I can hit 2017 full steam ahead.”
Locklear was previously married to American rockers Richie Sambora and Tommy Lee. She has a scheduled court date on March 13.
