Amber Heard mugshot resurfaces amid BIZZARE allegations regarding death of best friend
Heard, 36, has been under the magnifying glass since her hotly anticipated trial with Depp, 58, began in Fairfax County, Virginia on April 11
An old mugshot of Amber Heard made the rounds on social media amid her ongoing defamation trial with ex-husband Johnny Depp. According to the legal document, the processing date of the arrest is listed as September 12, 2003, in Austin, Texas.
Heard, 36, has been under the magnifying glass since her hotly anticipated trial with Depp, 58, began in Fairfax County, Virginia on April 11. Fans have been engrossed in the trial and engaged in several online debates about the details of the case while unearthing past incidents involving both parties. Heard's juvenile mugshot prompted a wave of reactions pertaining to the arrest information. Some mocked the 'Aquaman' actress, while others rushed to her defense following a series of bizarre claims.
"She from Texas right? Crime mugshot from teenage years. Sure she isn't in the Texas Chain Saw massacre instead? #AmberHeardIsAPsycopath #AmberHeard #AmberHeardIsALiar," one posted on Twitter.
"The only place Amber Heard's face should be prominent is on a mugshot," another wrote.
"Still shocked by the juvenile record of offenses and the teenage mugshot of Amber Heard. Badly behaved teenager to a badly behaved woman," someone else commented.

A Reddit thread titled "Was Amber Heard involved in vehicular manslaughter as a teenager?” went viral shortly after her mugshot resurfaced. Many claimed that the actress was arrested at the time for her involvement in a car accident. Meanwhile, a Yahoo News article documented Heard's formative years and how she lost her best friend to a fatal car accident at the age of 16. The piece also noted how she dropped out of school the following year to pursue modeling in New York and later moved to Los Angeles to start acting.
While some sought to establish a connection between the two incidents citing Heard's decision to drop out of high school, others pointed out that her 2003 arrest stemmed from driving with a suspended license and that there was no proof of the case being related to the death of her best friend in a car accident.
"The #DeppfordWives are now spreading a rumor that Amber Heard was arrested for vehicular manslaughter for the death of her best friend," the Twitter account Leave Amber Heard Alone shared. "She was arrested for driving on a suspended/with no license w zero proof this is related to her friend’s death. It’s just more slander."
"This is so pathetic and sad at this point," one fan agreed.
"How far will these people go? Idk what’s worst the ones who come up with the lies or the ones who just blindly believe the most insane things," another chimed in.

After 2003, Heard was arrested in 2009 due to a number of domestic abuse allegations leveled by her former girlfriend Tasya Van Ree. According to USA Today, the former couple became embroiled in an argument at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Washington. It was reported that Heard allegedly grabbed Ree and struck her arm before she was arrested by the Port of Seattle Police on charges of domestic violence/misdemeanor assault in the fourth degree.
It later emerged that authorities had reportedly received a request to delete the arrest information about the case in 2011. In 2016, when Heard testified in court about the incident, she denied claims of domestic abuse. Van Ree also claimed the incident was largely "misinterpreted".
