Authorities observed Heisser’s Mercedes driving ‘at an unusually slow speed’ southbound on the 101 Freeway in Thousand Oaks, according to The Blast.

Once approaching the vehicle, officers noticed signs and symptoms of intoxication of alcohol and performed a field sobriety test were Chris allegedly blew a .19 and .20 on a breatalyzer.

The arrest came just hours after his girlfriend was arrested after she allegedly ‘battered her boyfriend’ before authorities arrived to the home.

Heather Locklear pleaded not guilty to charges she attacked deputies who answered a domestic violence call at her Southern California home.

Locklear’s attorney entered the plea to four misdemeanor counts of battery on an officer in Ventura County Superior Court on April 12. 

A pretrial hearing is scheduled June 7, and neither side had any comment after the arraignment.

Authorities say Locklear kicked, pushed and shouted at deputies who were answering a report that she’d been violent with her boyfriend on February 26.  

Defendants in misdemeanor cases generally don’t have to appear in person if they are represented by an attorney.

The 56-year-old actress is best known for appearing on Dynasty and T.J. Hooker in the 1980s and Melrose Place in the 1990s.

In May she extended her stay in rehab.

The Dynasty actress opted for another two months in treatment in an attempt to get healthy following her February arrest stemming from a domestic abuse call at her Thousand Oaks, Calif. home.

She won’t be going home anytime soon due to wanting to fight her substance demons, according to RadarOnline.

‘Heather has now paid for two months of rehab so she will be there longer than the one month she originally planned,’ a source said.

Although determined to fight her addictions – which has cost her a whopping $114,000 – the actress will be able to visit her fiance, Chris Heisser.

‘She doesn’t really have access to her phone – it’s locked up most of the time, so she has been recovering alone and without communication,’ the source said.

‘Chris has been seeing her every Sunday, he flies up. He’s staying at her house taking care of the dog.’

Heather was arrested on suspicion of felony domestic battery for allegedly assaulting Heisser at her California home in February.

While that charge has now been dropped, she will still face four counts of misdemeanor battery on a police officer and one charge of resisting or obstructing a police officer.

Documents obtained by People that were written by Senior Deputy Sheriff Keith Hall claimed Heather bit one of the officers and also acted ‘belligerent and aggressive’ toward them.

‘Deputy Alldredge saw that was bleeding from the bridge of his nose and he had redness on his chest … Told Deputy Alldredge that in the bedroom, Locklear attacked while he was on the bed and he defended himself,’ the deputy wrote in an excerpt of the statement. ‘He did not know how many times Locklear struck him.

‘Locklear bit his face and described Locklear as being ‘all over’ him for the last 20-30 minutes acting ‘crazy,’ ‘angry,’ and ‘wild.’

‘[During the investigation] Locklear exhibited combative, belligerent, and aggressive behavior toward deputies.’

He described the former Melrose Place star as being ‘agitated and uncooperative’.
