A gun – one of two things that could have made Heather Locklear’s already extremely messy domestic abuse arrest from last week exponentially worse. The other would be if her old pal Charlie Sheen had shown up in the middle of it. But even then, I feel like even he’d be smart enough to drive away after pulling up to her house.
According to TMZ, police were at Heather’s home yesterday with a search warrant to retrieve a gun. As Heather was being arrested on February 25th, she reportedly struck three cops that responded to her brother’s 911 call. A source says that as she was being arrested, she told the police: “If you ever come back to my house I will shoot you.” So police decided to play it safe and remove the weapon from her home. There is a handgun registered in Heather’s name, and she’s owned it since 1985. But after searching for several hours, no gun was found. The police are deciding what to do next.
Heather threatened to shoot cops if they came back to her house, like some old-timey hillbilly with a shotgun trying to guard his dirt farm. But there was no threat of Heather shooting the cops, because she’s currently in a medical treatment facility.
The source adds that Heather was “extremely intoxicated” at the time of her arrest. So it’s probably safe to say that that gun threat came straight from the alcohol. But still, she did say she’d shoot if police ever came back to her house. And let’s face it – this is Heather Locklear. The likelihood that the police will be swinging by her home sometime in the future is a little too high to be taking such a chance.
