Los Angeles, June 7 (IANS) Actress Amber Heard, who claims she was the victim of domestic violence by estranged husband Johnny Depp, was reportedly arrested on the same charge against her former girlfriend Tasya Van Ree in 2009, it has emerged.
Heard and Van Ree got into an argument on September 14, 2009 at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. She reportedly grabbed Van Ree’s arm, was arrested and booked for misdemeanour and domestic violence, reports tmz.com.
Her mugshot was taken and she appeared in court the following day.
Heard is currently suing Johnny Depp for divorce claiming, amid other things, that he was violent towards her and threw his iPhone at her, bruising her face.
However, the prosecutor declined to take the case further but warned Heard that she could reconsider and refile within the two-year statute of limitation period.
It was previously revealed that Heard considered herself married to Van Ree, before she tied the knot with Depp.
