Heather Locklear Adds "Hit and Run" to Her Arrest Record
And the hits just keep on coming for Heather Locklear. On the road, anyway.
The former Melrose Place actress, who was arrested in September 2008 on suspicion of driving under the influence, was arrested again for alleged hit-and-run on Saturday.
The accident took place at approximately 4 a.m. near the North Ranch Country Club in Westlake Village, California, which is close to Locklear's home, though the person who heard the crash didn't report it to authorities until 7:48 that night. When deputies fro, the Ventura County Sheriff's Department arrived at the scene they discovered a knocked-over "No Parking" sign as well as evidence that the car had jumped the curb.
A subsequent investigation indicated that it it was Locklear's black BMW that had been involved in the accident, at which point deputies went to Locklear's home, noticed damage consistent with the crash on her vehicle, and arrested her.
Locklear, who attended an Arizona rehab facility for reported "psychological issues," pleaded no contest to reckless driving in the 2008 arrest early last year. Though the district attorney dropped the DUI charge in exchange for the plea, Locklear was placed on three years' probation and must complete a DMV road and safety class.
