Actress Heather Locklear has been ordered to spend a month in a mental health facility after pleading no contest to a series of assault charges.
The Melrose Place actress was facing eight charges, including six involving battery on a police officer or paramedic.
The 57-year-old must check into the residential facility by September 6 and spend the full 30 days there or she will be sentenced to 120 days in jail, TMZ reports. She was also sentenced to three years’ probation.
Heather, who was arrested last June, will be on three years of unsupervised probation and was ordered not to possess any weapons, non-prescribed medications or alcohol.
The charges stemmed from two incidents in Ventura County. TMZ reports she was arrested in February 2018 for allegedly attacking her boyfriend and a police officer.
She was arrested again in June 2018, after she allegedly attacked an officer and EMT after they responded to a disturbance call.
Over the years, Heather has battled substance abuse and suffered from mental illness. She spent time in rehab and been on more than on involuntary psychiatric hold.
