Heather Locklear Arrested

Heather was pulled over and arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence by a California Highway Patrol officer just outside Santa Barbara after she was seen driving erratically in September 2008. Police had then been tipped off about Heather’s driving by Jill Ishkanian, a former reporter and editor at Us Weekly magazine, who saw her outside a market in Montecito, California. Jill photographed the incident and then sold the photos to celebrity news website TMZ.com for $27,500, though she then claims it was entirely a chance meeting and denies following Heather or setting her up to obtain photographs. She was formally charged on November 17, 2008, with one misdemeanor count of driving under the influence. A blood test then detected no alcohol or illegal narcotics, but the Santa Barbara County Deputy District Attorney Lee Carter stated that they believe the prescription medications she had consumed for her anxiety and depression “could have impaired her ability to safely drive a motor vehicle”. Heather pleaded no contest to reckless driving on January 2, 2009, and then in return the district attorney dismissed the DUI charges. Heather was sentenced to three years of informal probation, a DMV driver safety class, and also a $700 fine.

Her sister called 9-1-1 when she believed Locklear was in danger after reportedly taking prescription drugs and alcohol on January 12, 2012. The emergency personnel responded and Heather was taken to Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks, California, but was later reported to be out of danger the following day.

Heather was arrested for domestic violence and battery against a police officer in February 2018. She was then charged with one felony count of domestic violence and also three misdemeanor counts of battery on a police officer. As the deputies arrived at her Thousand Oaks home, Locklear allegedly kicked three of the arresting sheriff deputies and told the deputies she would shoot at them if they ever came into her home again. According to an audio of the 911 call, Heather’s brother called the police after coming to her home, where he found her and her boyfriend arguing. Heather was released on a $20,000 bond just before 6 a.m. the next day. Her ex- boyfriend, former American Motorcycle Association motocross racer Chris Heisser, was also arrested on a driving under the influence charge in Thousand Oaks, hours after Heather had been taken into custody. After obtaining a warrant, police searched her home for a weapon on March 12 but they found none.

On June 24, 2018, Heather was arrested again, this time for two misdemeanor counts of battery on June 24, 2018.

TMZ reported on November 1, 2018, that Locklear was now facing charges related to the June 24, 2018 incident regarding an EMT. Jennifer Hayn-Hiton, who is a mother of 3, claims that Locklear put her out of work and wished death on her 3 kids by AIDS.
