Heather Locklear Arrested on Possible DUI
KTLA News ^ | September 28, 2008

Posted on 09/28/2008 5:31:47 PM PDT by BenLurkin

MONTECITO -- Actress Heather Locklear was arrested Saturday night on suspicion of DUI while driving in Montecito, police said this morning.

Locklear, no longer in custody, was arrested by the California Highway Patrol and booked around 8 p.m. Saturday, said Sgt. Alex Tipolt of the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department.

CHP spokesman, Tom Marshall, says the arresting officer noticed Locklear's car parked on a state highway and blocking a lane in Montecito, a wealthy community about 90 miles northwest of Los Angeles.

Locklear was believed to be under the influence of prescription medication, but he did not know what kind, Marshall said. He says Locklear was not under the influence of alcohol.

Locklear was released on her own recognizance, without having to post bail.

The 47-year-old actress is best known for television shows such as " Melrose Place" and "Spin City."

Her arrest could set up a bizarre custody battle given that Locklear and ex-husband Richie Sambora have both been busted on similar charges.

Sambora pleaded no contest to DUI back in March. His daughter Ava was in the car at the time he was popped. Locklear's children reportedly were not in the car when she was arrested.

In June, Locklear checked herself into an Arizona medical facility to fight anxiety and depression.

DUI??? From that photo, those eyes, tell me she is wired to the max. Probably crystal meth.

Wasn’t she just in rehab for pill and alcohol addiction?

Driving under the influence of what? A fugly stick? She used to be gorgeous. Now she looks, well, sort of haggard.

No...no meth. Her eyes don’t look wired to me...just like maybe she cried (before the mug shot—smeared eyeliner too—like she just knows this is going on the Smoking Gun). My guess, someone of her age and means, Rx pills...took a little too many—Xanax for anxiety? Along w/an antidepressant, a few white wines...and there ya go. But no meth...

Stop the presses! Beneath the mascara, celebs are frail idjits like the rest of us!



Just the same, you'd think someone of her "talents" could squeeze in one more perfect glamour shot at short notice.


By the way, Heather "schwing!" Locklear has basically the same chances of going to hell as the rest of us. Isn't fame great?

She’s a good person, a longtime supporter of Conservative causes. Yes, she’s drop-dead gorgeous.....but she also has heart. Leave her be and pray for her.

Looking at both 'big' photos, Heather has a great neck...that is why she is aging so well.

But the hair?!?!?! Don't ever razor cut, fine, over processed hair! Argggggghhh....

The people who take mug shots graduate to take DMV photos, I suspect.

Actually, it looks like her hair was tied back and let down. They would have taken any tie or band away from her when she was booked.

True...but she was booked and released on her own recog. (so I don't think the elastic band/scrunchie would have been an issue). From her 'good' photo, her ends look like a razor cut (to get that fine, wispy look) but not good if you don't work at it (as evidence by the booking photo). She still looks really good (at booking) but, I'll say it again...her hair is a mess in real life.

Heather, hon, you do the L'Oreal commercials...honest, blunt ends are your friends...

She looks great for her age, and her eyes aren’t even bloodshot. Guess she is just as vulnerable to human frailty as the rest of us, she just looks better doing it ;)

Mugshot photos will do that. They're below the standards for passports and Costco.

The lady’s been going through a rough patch lately. Hope she gets the help that she needs to pick herself back up.

This is going to be one of the classic mug shots. Still, the lady looks better here, me thinks, than in # 8.

Heather is a beautiful woman. Always has been. You just don’t see or hear scandalous things about her. Not until recently anyway re her divorce. It looks like she had been crying (hard) prior to this mugshot. She doesn’t look under the influence of anything.

This is really sad for her daughter who has already had to deal with her dad’s issues. Poor little Ava. My heart goes out to her.
BTW, Heather doesn’t look bad save for the smudged make-up and the hair. Hope she gets the helps she needs for her and her kids sake.

Under the influence of depression. She needs someone neutral to listen and listen and just let her know they care and she’s loved by the Lord.

I feel very sorry for Heather. She’s not a Hollywood bimbo; she’s a great mom from everything I’ve read. And if she was placed on some sort of medication when she was an inpatient, perhaps she’s in need of an adjustment.

I just love her and wish her only the best.

I wonder if Heather was always loopy and needy and substance-abusey, and we just never heard about it all these years.
