    In this handout photo provided by the Ventura County Sheriffs Office, actress Heather Locklear is seen in a police booking photo after her arrest on charges of suspicion of domestic battery and assaulting a peace officer Feb. 25, 2018 in Ventura, California. Police were called to Locklear's Thousand Oaks home after reports of a domestic battery. Locklear was released after posting bail.

    Heather Locklear has been charged with several counts of battery against first responders who answered a domestic violence call at her Southern California home.

    The 56-year-old "Melrose Place" actress was charged Monday with four misdemeanor counts of battery on an officer or emergency personnel, and one misdemeanor count of resisting or obstructing an officer.

    Sheriff's officials said Locklear kicked, pushed and shouted at deputies who were answering a report that she had been violent with her boyfriend Feb. 26. No domestic violence charges have been filed.

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

    She's scheduled for arraignment Tuesday in Ventura County Superior Court.

    Defendants in misdemeanor cases generally do not have to appear in person if they are represented by an attorney.
