Heather Locklear has been arrested for felony domestic violence, E! News confirms.

The Ventura County Sheriff's Office received a call of domestic disturbance in Thousand Oaks, Calif., at 10 p.m. Sunday. "Our deputies responded and contacted Heather Locklear at that residence," a spokesperson told E! News Monday. "She was uncooperative with deputies and battered our deputies. We conducted an investigation into the original call of the domestic disturbance and determined she had bartered her boyfriend. She was arrested for felony domestic battery and three counts of misdemeanor battery on a peace officer. She claimed prior to our arrival that she had been battered or injured. Although we did not see any evidence of that, out of an abundance of caution, she was transported to a hospital for evaluation." Locklear was booked at 1:03 a.m. Monday and released at 5:48 a.m. after posting $20,000 bail.

A court date has been set for March 13.

E! News has reached out to Locklear's rep for additional comment.

This wasn't the actress' first brush with law enforcement officials, of course.

Locklear was arrested in 2008 on suspicion of driving under the influence. The actress pleaded no contest to reckless driving, and the district attorney dismissed her DUI charges. She was sentenced to three years of informal probation, paid a $700 fine and took a driver safety class.

Hours later, E! News confirmed Locklear's reported boyfriend, Chris Heisser, was arrested for DUI in Los Angeles. He was taken into custody in the early hours of Monday morning, about two hours after Locklear was arrested. He has since been released. 

TMZ first reported the news of Locklear's latest arrest.
