Sheriff’s officials said Locklear kicked, pushed and shouted at deputies who were answering a report that she had been violent with her boyfriend on Feb. 26. No domestic violence charges have been filed.


Locklear’s representatives did not immediately reply to requests for comment.


Locklear is scheduled for arraignment Tuesday in Ventura County Superior Court.


Defendants in misdemeanor cases generally do not have to appear in person if they are represented by an attorney.
