Heather Locklear Arrested for Attacking a Cop and an EMT

The 56-year-old "T.J. Hooker" actress is currently being held on $20,000 bail

Heather Locklear is in trouble with the law... again.

One week after the "Melrose Place" star was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold, E! News has confirmed she has been arrested for battery on a police officer and emergency personnel.

Police arrested Locklear at 11:30 p.m. Sunday and booked her hours later at 2:01 a.m. TMZ, which first reported news of the actress' arrest, described the TV star as "extremely agitated" after a family member first called 911 to report a disturbance.

According to the outlet, Locklear "punched a responding deputy" who was trying to separate her from other "members of her family." Paramedics arrived on the scene, and "she kicked an EMT" while being put on a gurney. The actress was first taken to a nearby hospital, TMZ reported, then transported to jail. She received two misdemeanor charges, both for battery upon an officer and emergency personnel.

The 56-year-old "T.J. Hooker" was released after posting $20,000 bail. She checked in to a treatment facility later Monday, the Associated Press reported, citing a person close to Locklear. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because of medical privacy restrictions.
