While Amber Heard has dropped some vicious claims of abuse at the hands of her estranged husband Johnny Depp, it turns out that she was once arrested herself for domestic violence.

With her allegations facing plenty of scrutiny, Heard released graphic photos last week of injuries from the alleged abuse and said, “I truly feared for my life.”

Something the actress may know a thing or two about.

In 2009, the actress was arrested and charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic violence against her then-girlfriend, artist and photographer Tasya van Ree, according to TMZ.

The celebrity news and gossip website reported:

According to law enforcement sources and documents, Amber and Tasya van Ree got in an argument on September 14, 2009 at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Amber allegedly grabbed and struck Tasya in the arm, which upset Tasya and triggered the arrest.

Amber was arrested and booked for misdemeanor domestic violence. Her mug shot was taken and she appeared in court the following day.


TMZ obtained audio of Heard’s 2009 court hearing, where the state’s attorney decided not to pursue the case. The judge warned Heard that there was a two-year statute of limitation on the charge and that the prosecutor could refile during that time, if they choose.
