Richie Off the Wagon -- Popped For DUI

3/26/2008 1:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Richie Sambora was arrested for DUI in Laguna Beach, Calif.

Law enforcement sources tell us the Bon Jovi guitarist was pulled over by the Laguna Beach PD just before 11:00 PM last night. Cops say they observed him driving erratically in a black Hummer and pulled him over. He failed numerous field sobriety tests and was detained for DUI.

At the station, a cooperative Sambora opted to take a blood test rather than blow into a breathalyzer. Laguna Beach PD tells TMZ there's no indication of drugs.

Sambora was released around 4:00 AM this morning.

In 2007, Richie had not one, but two stints in rehab.

A spokesperson for Bon Jovi had no comment.

It's rediculous that these rich bastards can't get a driver to drive their drunks asses. They are going to kill someone one day. Someone like my best friend, who was MURDERED by a drunk driver. Really gets under my skin.

Man.....he looks like ass on a cracker. Kids take note, learn to play an instrument besides the skin flute and you too can have some of the hottest chicks on the planet.
Oh, and good job there buddy driving your 90,000lb gayest truck on the planet around hammered. Seriously, does anyone think a hummer ( car ) is cool? I have been in the real military ones and they are cool, but the street version just makes you look like an idiot with a really tiny wang. Get a real truck.
