Heather Locklear's Friends Speak out in Wake of Actress's Arrest

Former Dynasty star Heather Locklear has been arrested after she allegedly bit her boyfriend's nose in a drunken rage and then attacked three police officers. The actress reconnected with her high school boyfriend a year ago, according to People, and they've been together since.

She was previously arrested in 2008 on suspicion of driving under the influence and was sentenced to probation.

A source told the publication, "Her family, led by daughter Ava, has tried to get Heather to go to rehab for an extended period of time for help".

"There were marks all over her boyfriend's face, so they had no choice but to take her into custody", the source added.

Locklear was charged with one count of domestic violence, a felony, and three counts of battery of emergency personnel, which are misdemeanors. Her brother immediately headed over to the house. "They said she seemed unstable and they wanted to take her for a psychological evaluation", the source told ET.

Locklear's bail was set at $20,000, and she has been released. "His blood alcohol was.19". When police arrived on the scene after the call was made, it was allegedly reported that Locklear apparently became quite aggravated and began to fight the officers who were placing her under arrest.

It is not clear if Heisser has a lawyer representing him at this time.

"She was kicking at and pushing our deputies", he said.

She is also widely known for portraying Amanda Woodward on another American soap, Melrose Place, for which she earned four consecutive Golden Globe nominations. Locklear and Sambora divorced in 2007 after 13 years of marriage. She most recently appeared in an episode of ABC's Fresh Off the Boat. In 2011, the LAPD was dispatched to her home after she had an alleged physical altercation with her boyfriend at the time, Jack Wagner.
