Heather Locklear, 56, has been slapped with three new charges for allegedly punching a cop and kicking a paramedic who were trying to subdue her after she crashed her Porsche while heavily intoxicated at her home in Thousand Oaks, California, in June
Heather Locklear is facing three new charges for allegedly attacking a cop and a paramedic earlier this summer.
The 56-year-old actress was arrested in June after emergency personnel responded to a call about a domestic disturbance at her home in Thousand Oaks, California.
Locklear had reportedly downed an entire bottle of tequila and was heavily intoxicated when she crashed her Porshe into a gatepost at the southern California mansion on June 23.
Authorities say she punched a cop and kicked an EMT when they tried to put her on a gurney after the crash.
The former Melrose Place star will now be charged with one count of misdemeanor interfering with a law enforcement officer and two counts of misdemeanor battery for the alleged attack, TMZ reported Thursday.

A source close to Locklear told DailyMail.com: ‘The night [of the June 23 arrest], she was so hammered. The police came Sunday at six and then left.
‘When they came back at midnight, it was because she tried leaving, she tried driving out in her Porsche. She smashed her Porsche into a pylon in her gate.’
The source said Locklear couldn’t make it off the grounds because ‘she was so wasted’.
Locklear was released from jail the morning after the alleged cop assault, and was rushed to the hospital less than seven hours later having taken an overdose.
She was held under a 5150 psychiatric hold before being transferred to a rehab facility, where she has been staying for the past two months.

The three new charges announced Thursday have been added to five others for for felony domestic violence as well as battery against a cop after a fight with her boyfriend in February.
The paramedic she allegedly kicked, who has been assigned desk work for the moment, has hired a lawyer and is suing for medical bills, pain and suffering plus cash for emotional abuse by Locklear.
Locklear has not yet been charged with an incident one week before the June 23 arrest, when she allegedly choked her mother Diane, 85, and threatened to shoot herself.
She was cuffed and taken to a hospital following that altercation.
