The alleged incident occurred when police received a domestic violence call around 9:40pm after which officers arrived at the 56-year-old star's home in Thousand Oaks, California, The Blast reports.
Sgt. Eric Buschow of Ventura County Sheriff’s Office told PEOPLE, 'I don’t have any information as to whether or not an alcohol was involved, but she was extremely uncooperative right off the bat.
'She became combative with the deputies to the point where she was arrested not only for felony domestic battery but three counts of battery on a police officer.'
According to a 911 call obtained by TMZ, the domestic violence call was placed by Locklear's brother after he allegedly saw his sister and boyfriend fighting.
Locklear, nor her representation, have spoken out about the incident.
This is not the first time Locklear has had a brush with the law.
In September 2008, the actress was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in California and was formally charged in November 2008 with driving under the influence of drugs.
In 2010, the actress was also arrested for allegedly hitting a no-parking sign on a public street and was cited for misdemeanor hit-and-run.
And according to TMZ, in 2001 the Los Angeles Police Department responded to a call at Locklear’s then-boyfriend Jack Wagner’s home after things between the pair had allegedly gotten physical.
