Heather Locklear Facing Four Counts Of Battery, Banned From Owning Firearms

According to documents obtained by the celebrity news site this time around for the actress, things are a lot more complicated than just a DUI, or domestic violence charge.

The "Melrose Place" star was charged with five misdemeanor counts: four counts of battery on a peace officer and one count of resisting, obstructing, or delaying a peace officer, Ventura County Deputy District Attorney Tom Dunlevy told CNN.

Locklear had also kicked, pushed and shouted at deputies who arrived to investigate claims that she had been violent with her boyfriend.

A lawyer is expected to appear on Locklear's behalf at her first court hearing in Ventura County Superior Court today.

On Tuesday, Heather Locklear was charged with multiple counts of battery against law enforcement following her arrest last month on suspicion of domestic violence.

Locklear's representatives did not immediately reply to requests for comment.

The actress allegedly told police officers their children "deserve...to die" before threatening to shoot them in a profanity-filled rant during her arrest in late February, a Saturday report stated.

In the official police report, it states, "Locklear said the fight first started when [Heisser] lied to her and she threw a can of Red Bull at him".

The situation continued to escalate as Locklear also threatened to shoot the officers that came to her Thousand Oaks, Calif., home, which ultimately led to her home being searched for a firearm.

"'You f-- deserve your kids to die!" "'And when you find yourself in that position, think of me!'" The "Rehab Card" is a common practice used by celebrities who have encountered legal problems and face potential jail time after an ugly substance abuse riddled encounter with the police.
