Last week, court documents revealed Locklear pleaded no contest to eight misdemeanor offenses of resisting arrest and battery. The actress was found guilty and a judge ordered her to begin a residential treatment program as part of her sentence for two incidents that occurred last year.
Locklear is set to begin the 30-day treatment program on Sept. 6.
The first of the two incidents Locklear became involved in last year occurred in February 2018. The actress was arrested after police received a domestic violence call from her home in California. She was charged with four counts of battery and one count of obstructing an officer. Four months later, Locklear drew three new charges: battery against a police officer, battery against an EMT and obstructing an officer.
