Sambora Could Be Charged with Endangering Kid

3/26/2008 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Richie Sambora could be criminally charged with child endangerment.

Richie Sambora was busted for DUI with his 10-year-old daughter Ava in the car, along with another juvenile and another adult -- a woman. If Sambora was driving drunk, he could be charged with endangering the two kids.

Police sources tell us Sambora has not been charged with endangerment but the Laguna Beach P.D. is "actively investigating."

And, police sources say, after Sambora was busted, the cops called Heather Locklear, Ava's mom. We're told Heather authorized the woman in the car to drive her daughter home.

Ridiculous. He didn't hurt the kid. How gutless of you to sit behind your computer and judge, when you don't even know the facts yet. I'm sure Ritchie would rather die than hurt his baby.

If the woman was sober enough to drive ava home, why was she not driving when he got arrested. If that were my child I would have gone and gotten her myself. she must've been very scared. I guess heather did not want to get out of bed. And this other woman should be charged with child endangerment, too, especially if she was sober, and let him drive!!!!!!!!

They should do more then that. Strip his parental rights, if ya ask me. No one deserves to be a parent that will INTENTIONALLY endanger their own child's life. Not to mention other drivers. What a disgusting puke this vile "human" being is. *spits*

He should be losing all his parental rights at this point. He could have killed them all.

Are you freakin kidding me? Who cares if he didn't ACTUALLY hurt her!! He drove drunk and put her life in danger! No one here is judging him. You need to have you head looked at if you honestly defending this creep!

Heather probably knew he did this kind of thing. She doesn't care. All she is doing is worrying about which rock star she can marry next. And then try to kill herself when it doesn't work out.

Of course, it's horrible that a drunk driver would drive with THEIR kid in the car, but what about all those drunk driver who drive when I have MY kids in MY car!

Idiots!

WOW! Dumping Heather for Denise, driving around with a 10-year-old late at night (the child should have been in bed, and it looks like he should have too!), driving drunk. The rest of us would be in the slammer! Only in California!
