Heather Locklear might be currently in a better place, but that doesn’t mean she’s currently out of the woods when it comes to the boozy brawl that happened at her home.
We’re not talking about the boozy brawl that ended with Heather in handcuffs, threatening to shoot a police officer. That was in February, and Heather was charged with four counts of battery during that incident. We’re talking about when Heather got into a fight with her family, allegedly threatened to shoot herself, and later punched a deputy, then kicked an EMT as she was being strapped to a gurney.
Heather was never initially charged during that incident, but she has been now. TMZ says that Heather was charged with 1 misdemeanor count of interfering with a law enforcement officer (aka punching the cop), and 2 counts of misdemeanor battery for allegedly attacking first responders (aka kicking that EMT).
This could get messier for Heather. TMZ says the EMT that Heather made contact with got a personal injury lawyer, and has claimed they suffered serious harm during Heather’s leg-based outburst. The EMT reportedly was reassigned to desk duty while she recovered from head and neck issues.
The EMT is seeking compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and a little extra for getting an unscriped whooping Amanda Woodward. At the very least, that EMT deserves a medal of bravery for squaring off against current-day Heather Locklear. But I will say I’m kind of shocked that a sleazier personal injury lawyer hasn’t followed suit and worked this angle in a commercial or bus bench advertisement. “Have you been injured during an altercation with a certain TV star? Call 1-800-HEA-THER for justice.”
