Heather Locklear was arrested Sunday night in Los Angeles for battery on a police officer, TMZ reports.

"Heather Locklear was arrested at her home for two counts of battery on emergency personnel", a spokesperson for the Ventura County Sheriff's Office tells Yahoo Entertainment. Locklear was arrested in February 2018 for felony domestic violence against her boyfriend, Chris Heisser.

According to TMZ, officers said Locklear was intoxicated when they responded to a call placed by her family.

He said Locklear kicked one deputy and then kicked a paramedic who came to evaluate her.

She was reportedly being held on $20,000 United States dollars bail.

"This has been a long time downward spiral for her, that has been painful for everyone to witness", the source says. The actress last checked into rehab in March to resolve her addiction issues, but she's sought treatment before this. After Locklear was arrested, deputies wanted to medically clear her prior to booking due to her level of intoxication and her behavior, officials said. In an attempt to halt the altercation, VCSO told ABC News that the 56-year-old hit the officer and was subsequently arrested.

Last week, Locklear was hospitalized following an emergency call to the police. She seemed out of control once again, so they called the police.

It's been a rough month for Heather Locklear.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Locklear was ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation on June 17 after she allegedly assaulted her parents and threatened to kill herself.

She has pleaded not guilty in that case.

But she has struggled in recent years with substance abuse.
