Heather Locklear who achieved fame in the 90s after her character Amanda Woodward in the "Melrose Place" series, managed to save herself from a 120-day jail sentence after prosecuting prosecution of minors : Five of them for attacking one police officer, another for violence against emergency medical personnel and two more for resistance and obstruction.
This information was released by the Office of the District Attorney of Ventura County, California in a statement. One of these events occurred in February 201
8, when he attacked his partner and one of the police officers who came to resolve the conflict.
Now Locklear must enter a mental health center, where he will remain, for at least 30 days to avoid being imprisoned . The judge's decision was made after the actress participated in several violent incidents that occurred after consuming toxic substances, which have not been specified.
Heather had already been arrested twice, one of them in June, when she allegedly fired emergency personnel. Authorities said the actress was "extremely cooperative and physically combative" with sheriff's agents responding to the incident.
According to TMZ, the actress has a long history of violent mishaps including an event in 2011 in which his then partner, Jack Wagner, was involved, but no one filed charges. In 2008, she was arrested for driving under the influence of drugs and in 2010, she was arrested for breaking a prohibition sign on the parking meter.
Locklear was sentenced to 120 days in jail, but will only pay a penalty if she does not complete a treatment program according to the statement. He was also released on probation for three years.
