Heather Locklear pleads not guilty to attacking policemen


California — Heather Locklear has pleaded not guilty to charges she attacked deputies who answered a domestic violence call at her Southern California home.

Locklear's attorney entered the plea to four misdemeanour counts of battery on an officer in Ventura County Superior Court on Thursday. A pretrial hearing is scheduled for 7 June. Neither side had any comment after the arraignment.

Authorities say Locklear kicked, pushed and shouted at deputies who were answering a report that she'd been violent with her boyfriend on 26 February. She was not charged with domestic violence.

Defendants in misdemeanour cases generally don't have to appear in person if they are represented by an attorney.

The 56-year-old actress is best known for appearing on Dynasty and T.J. Hooker in the 1980s and Melrose Place in the 1990s.
