Heather Locklear pleads not guilty to attacking police officers

Heather Locklear pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges she kicked and shoved Ventura County Sheriff's deputies who responded to a call of possible domestic violence at her California residence in February.

The "Melrose Place" actress, 56, didn't appear in court in person because the case is misdemeanor — so her lawyer Blair Berk entered the pleas on her behalf, a source confirmed to the Daily News.

Prosecutors charged Locklear last month with four counts of battery on an officer and one count of resisting arrest.

She could face a maximum sentence of up to five years if convicted on all charges.

The Ventura County District Attorney decided not to charge Locklear with felony domestic violence against her boyfriend, even though authorities originally booked her on that charge.

A Sheriff's spokesman previously told The News that Locklear turned "combative" and resisted arrest when the deputies arrived at her house and found her boyfriend with a visible "traumatic" injury.

"She was immediately uncooperative. She started pushing and kicking when the deputies determined probable cause for the domestic battery and they were attempting to arrest her," Capt. Garo Kuredjian told The News.

The deputies did not observe any injuries on Locklear, but the "Dynasty" star claimed she was hurt and visited a hospital before she was booked and released on bail, officials said.

Cops did not identify the boyfriend. Locklear was publicly dating former high school sweetheart Chris Heisser, 56, at the time.

Heisser was arrested for DUI shortly after Locklear's arrest.

Locklear was previously arrested in 2008 on suspicion of driving under the influence. She pleaded to a lesser charge of reckless driving and was sentenced to probation.

The "T. J. Hooker" actress was one of the biggest TV stars of the 1980s and early 90s and twice married famous rock musicians.

She was hitched to Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee from 1986 to 1993 and Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora from 1994 to 2007.

Her engagement to fellow "Melrose Place" star Jack Wagner hit the rocks in 2011. The couple had a post-breakup battle in December 2011 that generated a police report but no criminal charges.
