On Thursday, Heather Locklear pleaded not guilty to a charges of battery against police officers and resisting arrest, which originated with her recent domestic violence arrest.

In February, the 56-year-old former Melrose Place actor was arrested following a police response to a domestic violence complaint in Thousand Oaks, California. Police say that at the scene they found the actor had assaulted her boyfriend. She then proceeded to push and shout at the cops, who arrested her for felony domestic battery and misdemeanor battery on a peace officer. Only the latter charge stuck.


The New York Daily News reported that prosecutors charged Locklear with four counts of misdemeanor battery on an officer and one count of resisting arrest in March.

What was Locklear allegedly screaming at the cops about? According to them, she was saying that her boyfriend had tried tot kill her, an allegation that he denied.
