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.

Someone that really needs help doesn't think of anyone else, even their family.

Anyone know who the woman in the car was? Is he cheating on Denise? I hate to say it but I hope he is. Denise is a horrible person and as bad a parent as Lynne Spears for whoring out her children on a reality show because she is a loser and can't make money on her own.

I wonder if it was Denise Richards and one of her children in the car? Can't see Heather giving her child over to "just anybody" to bring home....and what the hell is wrong with his face?????

Im totally disgusted and disappointed in him. How many interviews have we all seen where the ONLY thing important to him in his life is his child, and his wish to have more. Seems to me that whatever issues he is having are HIS issues and shame on him for putting all of those people in the car at risk and risking the lives of everyone he drove past that night before he got stopped. I make way less than he does and if i have money to get smashed keep some money to get your ass home in a cab. or dig deep into those rich pockets filled with your fans money and hire a car. God what is it with these totally rich idiots who drink and drive. Im not sure what goes through these peoples head but one thing is clear. They only care about themselves.

OK, the facts are his 10 year old daughter was in the car, he was drunk, there was another female adult and child in the car. Was this a visit he had with his daughter, if it was Heather should even be mentioned. Second Heather can't control that twit. Stop judging freaishly perfect people. Yes he should be charged and any body else would be.

Let's see how money and fame can buy Richie out of this mess....
Its one thing to drive drunk and endanger yourself and innocent people on the road. But to do it knowingly with children in the car? Shame on your Richie. Time to cancel the tour and get this guy some help!!!!!
Oh, and I just love how people who profess their love to this guy, can't even spell his name right!!!!!!!
