Ventura County Senior Deputy District Attorney Thomas Dunlevy told RadarOnline.com that he has received evidence from Sheriff's investigators on Friday, which will now go under review.
The troubled Melrose Place star was arrested for battering an offer and an emergency personnel who responded to a disturbance call at Locklear’s Thousand Oaks home on Sunday, June 24. The actress, who was “extremely intoxicated," allegedly punched a deputy in the chest and stomach and also hit an EMT, according to Sheriff’s officials.
