Heather Locklear pleads no contest to fighting with deputies

Heather Locklear has pleaded no contest to eight misdemeanors related to her June 2018 arrest for domestic violence and assault on a police officer.

If she does not complete the program, she could face up to 120 days in jail.

Heather Locklear is hopefully going to be getting the help she so desperately needs - and all without going to jail to do it.

The 57-year-old actress, best known for her roles on "Melrose Place" and "Dynasty", was also sentenced to three years' probation on Friday.

Locklear, 57, has been in treatment for substance abuse and mental health issues since her run-ins with the law and fights with on-again-off-again boyfriend in February and June of previous year.

The charges stem from two arrests on February 25, 2018, and on June 24, 2018.

In the first incident, police were called to her Thousand Oaks home for a domestic violence incident with her boyfriend, Chris Heisser.

Law enforcement sources claim an unnamed family member phoned police out of concern for Heather's safety, and both the Ventura County Fire and Sheriff's Departments responded at the star's home.

In the second encounter, deputies again responded to the home, where Lockear was "extremely intoxicated and very uncooperative", Ventura County sheriff' Sgt. Eric Bushow told CNN. Six of those charges stemmed from attacks on a police officer or EMT. She kicked at least one deputy in the leg and kicked an emergency medical technician in the chest during a pre-booking medical exam, the sergeant said.
