We have learned that the police officers who showed up at Heather Locklear’s house with a gun search warrant believed she might have been planning to commit ‘suicide by cop!’ As you may remember, the actress was arrested on February 24.
Due to the woman’s ‘erratic, aggressive behavior toward law-enforcement,’ the authorities feared that she might try to harm herself and that is why they wanted to confiscate her Smith and Wesson .38 revolver from her property.
In official police documents, Sheriff Keith Hall wrote: ‘Locklear had been drinking on this night as well and appeared out of control. Based on my training and experience, I know the people who are intoxicated by drugs and/or alcohol exhibit lower inhibitions, clouded judgment, erratic behavior, aggression, and are really unpredictable.’
The Sheriff went on to explain the reason why he requested to obtain the firearm from Locklear’s possession.
‘Deputies responded to her residence in regards to her being reported as a suicidal subject. Based on my training and experience, suicidal people are known to commit ‘suicide by cop,’ where they intentionally provoke a lethal force encounter to get the police to shoot them as a method of suicide. Due to the history of past police responses, there is a high probability the police will respond again to Locklear’s home in the future.’
Hall added that ‘Her threat to shoot police officers next time they show up to her home, coupled with her erratic, aggressive behavior towards law-enforcement and the fact that there’s a record that Locklear does own a firearm presents a legitimate threat to law enforcement.’
This whole drama started with a huge fight between Heather and her fiancé that even got physical.
Upon showing up to her house, one police officer was also attacked by the actress.
‘Locklear continues to be belligerent and making statements that she hopes [the police officer], and his wife and kids would die.’
