Shockingly, actress Heather Locklear has recently made headlines after being arrested for suspicion of felony domestic battery and three counts of battery, against a police officer. She also said that her boyfriend Chris Heisser, attempted to choke and kill her.
The 56 year old actress, previously was arrested for a domestic violence call back in February. She was not charged with that felony offense. Instead, she was charged with four counts of battery on a police officer and one count of resisting arrest. Heather also threatened the deputies on who responded at the scene with words and being combative.
It has been dark times for Heather this year. Family and friends knew she was in trouble and have attempted to help her before all of this happened. According to one report, Heather previously had a registered firearm to her name. The weapon is a .38-caliber pistol. Now, Heather has been banned from ever owning a firearm again.
This April, Heather’s attorneys have entered into a plea bargain on her behalf, as she was charged with five different misdemeanor counts, involving battery on a police officer and resisting, obstructing or delaying a police officer.
Heather seems to have a thing for musical bad boys, she previously was married to Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi) between 1994–2007 and Tommy Lee (Mötley Crüe) back in 1986–1993.
(Locklear and Sambora had one child together named Ava Sambora she is 20 years old now. Certainly she has been upset over these incidents regarding her mother)
Heather has certainly raised concerns among her family and friends about her mental health. She reportedly has been involved with alcohol and drugs. It is unknown exactly what type of drugs she was taking, but she was drinking heavily.
According to a post by People Magazine, Heather is clearly not getting the proper medical and mental health help she needs. It’s not just about rehab for addiction issues, but about getting a proper evaluation and help for the underlying mental health issues.
Over the Father’s Day weekend, Heather Locklear was taken to the hospital after a family member called 911. She apparently was threatening to kill herself, according to TMZ. Heather has been together with her one-time high school sweetheart, Chris Heisser.
He moved back in with Heather in her Thousand Oaks home after her initial arrest. Concerns for the pair include not only substance abuse, but stints with rehab and run-ins with the law. It is unknown whether or not Chris was with Heather during the Sunday arrest.
