More Trouble for Heather Locklear

     Heather Locklear was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of a controlled substance in the upscale Santa Barbara area, authorities said on September 28, 2008. Locklear, 47, was pulled over by a California Highway Patrol officer on Saturday afternoon, September 27th, after a resident reported seeing the actress leaving a parking lot and “driving erratically,” CHP spokesman Tom Marshall said.

     The 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. She was believed to be alone in the car, Marshall said. In talking with her, the officer determined that she seemed to be under the influence of something, Marshall said.

     Locklear was taken to the police station where she was tested for alcohol and drugs. She was booked at 7:00 P.M. on suspicion of driving under the influence of prescription medication. She was later released from custody. Calls to Locklear’s publicists were not immediately returned. Locklear in June checked into a medical clinic to seek treatment for anxiety and depression. Last year, she got a divorce from Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora after 11 years of marriage.
