'Dynasty' actress Heather Locklear's domestic violence charges have been dropped
Heather Locklear will not be charged for attacking her boyfriend but will be charged for attacking the police.
Heather Locklear will not be facing the court for attacking her boyfriend back in February but will be facing charges for allegedly attacking the police officers that responded to her home, according to People. However, the actress is still facing four counts of misdemeanor battery on a police officer along with one charge for resisting or obstructing a police officer.
Ventura County’s Senior Deputy District Attorney Thomas Dunlevy said that Heather's case was scheduled for court on Tuesday at 9 a.m. This comes after the actress was arrested on suspicion of felony domestic battery. It was reported that Heather had assaulted boyfriend, Chris Heisser, at her Thousand Oaks, California, home on February 25.
After the incident took place, last week, Ventura County Sheriff’s deputies searched Heather’s home and upon investigation, they found a firearm registered in her name. Capt. Garo Kuredjian of the Ventura County Sheriff told the magazine that the search was prompted after Heather made threats against Ventura County Sheriff’s deputies who arrived at her home after they received a domestic violence call at around 9.40 p.m.
In a press release that was given by the Thousand Oaks Police Department, it was stated that the actress verbally threatened deputies saying she would “shoot them if they ever came to her house again." According to the police documents which were obtained by People, “Deputy Alldredge saw that [Heisser] was bleeding from the bridge of his nose and he had redness on his chest."
"[Heisser] told Deputy Alldredge that in the bedroom, Locklear attacked [Heisser] while he was on the bed and he defended himself. He did not know how many times Locklear struck him. Locklear bit his face and described Locklear as being ‘all over’ him for the last 20-30 minutes acting ‘crazy,’ ‘angry,’ and ‘wild.’”
It also stated that during the course of the investigation, “Locklear exhibited combative, belligerent, and aggressive behavior toward deputies." He called her behavior “agitated and uncooperative while adding that “Locklear grabbed Deputy Alldredge by the bicep and pulled on it while ordering him to get out of the house.” Despite the search, the firearm was not found.
