Heather Locklear to Appear In Court Over Violent Fight With Ex

Looks like Heather Locklear will be keeping Lindsay Lohan’s seat warm. The actress is ordered to appear in court for a hearing after having a huge blowout with her ex that turned violent.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that the Los Angeles Police Department has prepped a file on the fight between Locklear and Wagner that happened late December at the couple’s San Fernando Valley home.

Cops were called to the home after Heather and Jack allegedly got physical with each other. Locklear reportedly upper-cutted the guy across the face. And here I thought all soap operas stars could do was slap and pull hair.

According to one source: “She lost it on him and he retaliated.”

When the officers arrived, neither Locklear nor Wagner wanted to press charges. Still, a file was sent to the City Attorney for review.

So now, the two must go to an office hearing. Which is basically a very informal meeting with prosecutors, where they hear both sides of the story and decide whether the whole thing should be dropped or not. The hearing is supposed to be held by the end of the month.

If prosecutors do decide to go ahead with the case, the City Attorney could file misdemeanor battery charges against Heather, Wagner, or both of them. But sources tell Fox411, “it’s almost certain the matter will be dropped after the hearing.”

Meanwhile, friends of Heather are trying to get the actress to enter rehab, at the UCLA Medical Center. The actress had a short stint in rehab back in 2008.
