Heard and van Ree considered themselves a married couple, with Heard even changing her last name.

Heard was arrested and booked for a misdemeanor, and the Rum Diary star was told to appear in court the next day. At her court appearance, the prosecutor declined to press charges since both parties lived outside the state.
