Only to get into another car accident in 2017

Locklear is arrested again, but this time, not while driving
Locklear is arrested for suspicion of felony domestic battery in 2018, People reports. “I don’t have any information as to whether or not an alcohol was involved, but she was extremely uncooperative right off the bat,” Sergeant Eric Buschow told People. “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.”
Locklear was fighting with her boyfriend so her brother called 911. She is scheduled to appear in court on March 13.
