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.

maybe he needs to tell his family just how sorry he is , one running around with your wife best friend. hurt the wife and child
that stood beside you thru the tough times. he needs to get on his needs and say just how sorry he is, maybe he just
can't live with what he has done to his family and friends

i don't feel sorry for him he is nothing but a drunk. needs to learn how to cope with problems in your life
we all have to do that. just another case that too much money

OMG - I totally thought that was a picture of Mickey Rourke!!!!!!!

What the he!! has happened to Richie? I guess this is what happens when you screw around on your beautiful wife and beautiful daughter. Was it worth it Rich? You lost your family. And apparently, your class as well.

He's obviously done a lot of picking at his face. If he is not tweaking now, he certainly has in the past. I'm so sick of these guys. Grow up and act like an adult!

To much Botox and Cemical peels. Looks like he saw Precilla Presley's Plastic Surgeon. Where is his eyebrows?

Okay, serious question here. Was he really driving around looking like that? Most of these celebs busted for DUI have the fugliest photos on the planet. Do they drive around with bed head and no make up all the time? Or do they take the photo after a few hours of arrest?

Yuck! How did somebody as cute as Heather Locklear get mixed up with this loser? I feel sorry for their poor daughter - she is adorable. I hope she grows up normal.

Bon Jovi have mostly sucky songs and his vocals are whiny and he's always singing at the top of his range. Not a good singer or songwriter. Karma, baby, it's a bitch.

That's a really bad wig that is slightly askew on his head. This is what a celebrity looks like after the pounds of makeup are sandblasted off their face.

Standards are badly needed.    

Richie's too old for this crap. He certainly has the money to call a cab or a limo if he needs to get the gal or himself home.
A Hummer is an eye-catcher to begin with, but a weaving hummer is a red flag for a $60,000.00 a year cop.
