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.
Put some more eyeshadow on and not guilty
Her hair is just breaking my heart.
Wasn’t she just in rehab for pill and alcohol addiction?
I’m going out on a limb here but
Honestly, I think it just looks like she’s been crying
Alert!!! Alert!!! Someone call Greta...blonde in distress, I say again...blonde in distress!!
Get a trowel some make up and possibly a not guilty
Driving under the influence of what? A fugly stick? She used to be gorgeous. Now she looks, well, sort of haggard.
I would *blank* in a heartbeat.
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...
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.
But the hair?!?!?! Don't ever razor cut, fine, over processed hair! Argggggghhh....
Absolutely 100% not guilty!
