CHP to Heather: You Oughta Be in Pictures

9/29/2008 3:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Heather LocklearTake a look at the CHP officer on the right, taking a picture of Heather Locklear on his cell phone just before she gets cuffed.

It's not a CHP cellphone -- the Department tells TMZ it's owned by the officer. So, you ask, why is the officer taking pictures of Heather Locklear on his personal cell phone? Officials in the Santa Barbara CHP office say he was documenting the scene with video and photos -- partly for evidence and partly to protect the officers in case Heather claims some sort of impropriety.

The officials say the video and photos are being turned over to the D.A.'s office as evidence and nothing was improper about the officer using his cell phone to document the arrest. But we spoke with several others at CHP who say officers shouldn't be using their personal cellphones, especially when a celeb is the suspect.

Cops lie all the time...especially in California. CHP constantly tramples on people's rights. Heather appears to be the latest casualty in the California Police State.

The chp that pulled my over ( SPEEDING 405) bullied me ( 40/f/bln/west la) taunted me asked why I was shaking, as I was looking for my license!!!!! I can only imagine them sporting wood in finding just a "BIG CELEB" catch... those backslapping goodold boyz... OH YEAH, ALL THAT CRIME IN MONTECITO...Any other resident in that city they would have driven the rich bastard/bitch home. The cell phone IS BULCRAP and its no better than the UCLA employees looking into patient files. You ever wonder how those "booking" procedure photos get out to the media....We are supposed to trust the badge ...This should not be taken lightly!!! Can we see his badge number?????

The CHP was sued in Southern California because gruesome CHP photos of a girl killed in a wreck (her head was cut off) were distributed by CHP employees. They ended up on the web and ultimately emailed to the family of the dead girl.

MY HUSBAND WAS A COP, AND THEY DO NOT USE THEIR PERSONAL CELL PHONES TO TAKES PICTURES OF ANY BUST OF ANY KIND. THEY ARE WAY OUT OF LINE, AND NOW WE KNOW HOW THE CELEBRATIES MUG SHOTS GETOUT. THEY SHOULD BE FIRED. WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO TRUST THE POLICE, BUT THEY ARE AS BAD AS THE CRIMINALS, IF NOT WORSE. THE CRIMINAL YOU EXPECT IT FROM, BUT THE POLICE NO WAY. FIRE THEIR BUTTS. CALIFORNIA SUCKS, I WOULD NEVER EVEN VISIT THE PLACE, YET ALONE LIVE THERE.
