In 1972, the divorce was finalized.


She was arrested and charged with theft of services in July 1985 after refusing to pay a $4,906 bill from a Long Island hotel and spa where she had been in 1984. She denied the allegations and pleaded not guilty. After reportedly slapping and pulling the hair of a staffer at Manhattan’s US Passport Agency office on July 8, 1985, she was arrested and charged with interfering with a government agent’s responsibilities and disturbing the peace. Heatherton was arrested for assault on August 30, 1986, in Hillcrest, Rockland County, New York, after stabbing her former lover and ex-manager Jerry Fisher in the hand with a steak knife during an altercation.

Heatherton informed police who she was after being arrested, but they didn’t believe her. She then surrendered her handbag to one of the cops to verify her identification. The officer discovered a foil package containing less than a gram of cocaine while searching Heatherton’s handbag. Heatherton was charged with misdemeanor narcotics possession and assault. A judge concluded in October 1987 that the search was unlawful because Heatherton was not informed that she had the right to decline a purse search. Heatherton’s assault case was eventually withdrawn by Jerry Fisher.
