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.

HEATHER PROBABLY DIDN'T GO PICK UP AVA BECAUSE OF THE PAPSMEAR FRENZY IT WOULD HAVE CAUSED. THE CHILD WAS SCARED ENOUGH AS IT IS AND CERTAINLY DIDN'T NEED PAPS SCREAMING AND PUSHING AND SHOVING TO GET HER PIC WITH MOM. IT'S AMAZING HOW SOME OF YOU ARE BLAMING HEATHER WHEN SHE WASN'T EVEN THERE. AS FAR AS THE NON-DRINKERS...WELL CONGRATS TO YOU. I DI NOT KNOW THAT NOT DRINKING AT ALL MADE YOU BETTER AND SMARTER THAN EVERY ONE ELSE IN THE UNIVERSE. WOW.

To Mr./Ms Dax: I am better than someone who drives while drunk. Period. The way I see it, this is a dangerous practice and one that not only puts the drunk driver at risk, but everyone else. Try losing your mother, spouse, or child to the swervings of a drunk driver. Then come back to me and tell me how you feel.

In all divorce decrees in the state of CA, there is a clause that states neither parent is to drink in the presense of the child when under their care and they aren't to take the child places where alcohol is soley served.

"...time to get a haircut and a job." Wtf? Bon Jovi toured football stadiums last summer. Ritchie must earn $200,000 a night on the road. Jon Bon Jovi owns a football team and has a Boeing 727 for his own personal transportation.

Child endangerment?..... OK...... And all the self righteous people who aren't afraid that soon whatever unapproved practice they undertake will result in criminal charges. People forgot what freedom was a long time ago. Hang in there Ritchie you can be as dumb as you like and I'm all for it!!!
