Prosecutors have decided not to charge Heather Locklear with felony domestic violence after her dramatic arrest in southern California two weeks ago, multiple sources told the Daily News on Monday.

One source said the “Melrose Place” actress won’t face any domestic violence charges at all  only misdemeanors involving allegations she kicked and shoved sheriff’s deputies responding to a call at her Thousand Oaks residence Feb. 25.

A lawyer is expected to appear on Locklear’s behalf at her first court hearing in Ventura County Superior Court Tuesday morning.

Locklear, 56, was booked on suspicion of felony domestic violence and three counts of misdemeanor battery on emergency personnel last month.

A Ventura County Sheriff spokesman said she turned “combative” and resisted arrest when deputies responded to a domestic violence call from her house and found her boyfriend had sustained a visible “traumatic” injury.

“She was immediately uncooperative. She started pushing and kicking when the deputies determined probable cause for the domestic battery and they were attempting to arrest her,” Capt. Garo Kuredjian told The News.

The deputies did not observe any injuries on Locklear, but the “Dynasty” star claimed she was hurt and visited a hospital before her booking at Ventura County jail a little after 1 a.m. the next day, authorities said.

She was released several hours later after posting $20,000 bail.

Police did not identify the boyfriend, but Locklear has been dating former high school sweetheart Chris Heisser, 56, for months.

Heisser was popped for DUI shortly after Locklear’s arrest as he piloted a Mercedes southbound on the 101 Freeway in Ventura County, a California Highway Patrol spokesman told The News.

“He was driving at an unusually slow speed for that time of the evening,” CHP Officer Marco Marin said.

“Mr. Heisser provided a breath sample that came back .19% blood alcohol.”

Heisser was arrested at 12:43 a.m. and booked for misdemeanor DUI. He was cited and released shortly after 8 a.m. with a court date set for late April.

Locklear’s lead defense lawyer Blair Berk declined to comment when reached by The News.

The “T. J. Hooker” actress was previously arrested in 2008 on suspicion of driving under the influence. She pleaded to a lesser charge of reckless driving and was sentenced to probation.

Locklear was one of the biggest TV stars of the 1980s and early ’90s and twice married famous rock musicians.

She was hitched to Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee from 1986 to 1993 and Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora from 1994 to 2007.

Her engagement to fellow “Melrose Place” star Jack Wagner fell apart in 2011. The couple had a post-breakup battle in December 2011 that generated a police report but no criminal charges.
