Amber Heard is no stranger to domestic violence proceedings.
The actress claims she’s the victim of domestic violence by husband Johnny Depp, but she was herself arrested for domestic violence against her then-domestic partner, Tasya van Ree.
Let’s reach way back, shall we? Yes, way back to 2009, when the two got into an argument on September 14at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Amber allegedly grabbed and struck Tasya in the arm, which upset Tasya and triggered the arrest. According to TMZ, Amber wasÃÂ thenarrested and booked for misdemeanor domestic violence. Her mug shot was taken and she appeared in court the following day.
TMZ has obtained audio of the court hearing, where the prosecutor declined to move forward with the case — we’re told because the women both lived in California. The judge told Amber she was not off the hook … prosecutors could reconsider and refile within the 2-year statute of limitations.
Amber thanks the judge and leaves the courtroom.
We reached out to Amber’s lawyer … so far no word back.
