The 56-year-old actress was arrested on suspicion of felony domestic battery for allegedly assaulting boyfriend, Chris Heisser, at her California home on February 25, and at the time was also arrested on four counts of misdemeanor battery on a police officer and one charge of resisting or obstructing a police officer after she was said to have lashed out at the cops who were called to attend the incident.
Last month, the domestic battery case against Heather were dropped but it was reported she would still face the other charges brought against her, and according to TMZ, the star has now pleaded not guilty.
The publication reports that the ‘Melrose Place’ star was not present at her court hearing on Thursday (12.04.18), but her attorneys entered the plea on her behalf.
Previously, documents that were written by Senior Deputy Sheriff Keith Hall claimed Heather bit one of the officers, and was “agitated and uncooperative”.
The documents stated: “Locklear walked to her bedroom and began to close the door. Deputy Alldredge put his foot in the doorway to prevent her from closing it, and to continue the investigation. Heather attempted to push Deputy Alldredge out of the doorway, and screamed, ‘Get the f**k out of my house!’
“She battered Deputy Alldredge by kicking him in his shin in an attempt to get his foot out of the doorway. The source was strong enough to force Deputy Alldredge’s leg out of the doorway.”
Documentation also alleges Heather threatened to “shoot” the officers if they stepped foot on her property again, which lead to a search of the Thousand Oaks home for a firearm, although officers didn’t find anything in the search.
