Here’s the good news for Heather Locklear: She hasn’t been charged with domestic violence following her late February arrest.

Now the bad news: She’s still been socked with multiple other charges.

The “Melrose Place” alum has been charged with four counts of misdemeanor battery on an officer or emergency personnel, the Associated Press reports. The actress has also been charged with a single count of resisting or obstructing an officer, also a felony.

A spokesman for the Ventura County, California, district attorney’s office was unable to confirm the charges to TheWrap on Monday.

Locklear was arrested after officers responded to a domestic violence call in Thousand Oaks at around 10 p.m., and Locklear was “uncooperative” with the deputies and “pushed” one of them after they discovered her boyfriend had been battered,” a spokesman for the Ventura County, California, sheriff’s office told TheWrap following her arrest. Locklear claimed she was injured prior to the arrival of the deputies and was taken to a local hospital before being transported to the jail.

Locklear was initially charged with one count of battery on her boyfriend, a felony, and three counts of battery of emergency personnel, which are misdemeanors.

A representative for Locklear did not respond to TheWrap’s request for comment following her arrest.

Locklear was arrested in 2008 on suspicion of driving under the influence, and she and her ex-boyfriend Jack Wagner were ordered to appear in court after a reportedly violent fight in 2011.

Locklear’s credits include “Melrose Place,” “The Perfect Man,” “Spin City,” “Too Close to Home” and “Scary Movie 5.”
