When a call alleging domestic violence came in Sunday night to the police department in Thousand Oaks, Calif., cops headed over to a private residence and made an arrest—and the person arrested was Heather Locklear. TMZ reports a 911 call was apparently placed by Locklear's brother when he arrived at her home and allegedly found Locklear and her boyfriend fighting. Law enforcement officials tell TMZ that when they arrived, they spotted a mark on the boyfriend, and that when they tried to take Locklear into custody, the 56-year-old Melrose Place actress became "combative, flailing [and] kicking and [striking] three deputies."

Locklear was charged with a felony count of domestic violence and three counts of battery on emergency personnel, which are misdemeanors. Both TMZ and Page Six note Locklear's previous battles with substance abuse, as well as her involvement in past domestic violence incidents. TMZ notes a 2011 incident between herself and former boyfriend Jack Wagner, in which they allegedly got physical with each other (neither pressed charges). A Thousand Oaks Police Department spokesman tells the Hollywood Reporter that Locklear is no longer in custody after being booked at the Ventura County Jail. (More Heather Locklear stories.)
