Turns Out Amber Heard Was Arrested For Domestic Violence In 2009
The Amber Heard-Johnny Depp divorce saga just got even messier.
While the rest of the world was sleeping this morning, it was discoveredÂ thatÂ in 2009, Amber Heard was arrested and charged withÂ domestic violenceÂ after allegedly striking her then-partner in the arm at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
The alleged assault occurred after the couple got into a heated argument and TMZ reports that Amber was later arrested and booked for misdemeanor domestic violence, although the court ended up dismissing the case because neither woman lived in the state of Washington.
The judge did give Van Ree the option of refiling within the two-year statue of limitations, but clearly that didnâ€™tÂ end up happening. Â
Of course, the fact that Amber Heard was once arrested for domestic violence shouldnâ€™t mean that her own allegations of violenceÂ aboutÂ Johnny Depp should be discredited or taken any less seriously.Â
Itâ€™s just an interesting and unfortunate turn of events for a woman whoâ€™s already having a hard enough time making people take her allegations seriously.Â
