Police searched Heather Locklear’s home for a firearm on Tuesday after the actress threatened to “shoot” deputies when they arrested her last month.
“She had made some very specific threats to deputies after her last arrest,” Capt. Mike Beckett with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office told Entertainment Tonight. “There was a firearm registered in her name, so the purpose of the search was simply to go and look for that firearm.”
According to multiple media reports, Locklear told “deputies she would shoot them if they ever came to her house again.” Detectives could not locate the firearm. A spokesperson for the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
On Feb. 25, Locklear was arrested for domestic violence and battery on a police officer.
Capt. Garo Kuredjian of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office told TheWrap at the time that 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.
Locklear was charged with one count of battery on her boyfriend, a felony, and three counts of battery of emergency personnel, which are misdemeanors. She was released on a $20,000 bail and was scheduled to appear in court on March 13.
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.” She is represented by APA, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and True Public Relations.
