Photos of Locklear Arrest

9/29/2008 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained photos of Heather Locklear's DUI arrest on Saturday near Santa Barbara. The actress looks somewhat dazed as she's taken into custody. But after taking a closer look, she could have an interesting defense.
Launch photos
A resident called authorities after allegedly seeing Locklear driving "erratically" in a parking lot. But the CHP didn't see her driving -- she had pulled over on her own accord before they got there. There are reports she was arrested for driving under the influence of prescription medication -- but we're told the tests are still being analyzed. As we posted yesterday, no alcohol was involved.

The bottom line -- Locklear has a lawyer with a Ty Cobb batting average, Blair Berk. Especially given that deputies apparently didn't see her driving, look for a plea bargain and very possibly a reduced charge -- e.g., reckless driving.

By the way, check out the huge rock on her finger. She was apparently staying at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito with Jack Wagner.

The woman clearly has a problem and she is hurting.

If it's true that Heather has been doing drugs for years, then she apparently has gone from recreational use to heavy use and the facade is crumbling.

If she has to do that sh*t, she needs to stay the hell off the road.

Wrestler Kurt Angle had a similar situation. Cops did not actually see him driving, someone reported it. He got out of the DUI charge

Hey No 30, I heartily agree with you. WHY is it that rich drug addicts like Fat Ole Britney Spears feel the need to get behind the wheel when they are high and/or drunk?? Are they lacking somehow at home or what?? Like Brit couldn't send out Alli or Sam for her wheelbarrow of Taco Bell food?? Heather should know better, wow. Almost 50 and out driving drunk.
If she is pregnant they should charge her with child endangerment. THe rest of us get charged with child abuse/child endangerment if we give birth to a baby who is born with FAS or drug addicted. They better treat Heather just like they do any woman.

I feel so sorry for Ava. Now is the time she needs her parents to be SOBER and Momma and Daddy are drunks and drug addicts. Maybe Denise Richards can adopt her? She is a hateful witch, but at least she doesn't drive her children around drunk, or drive drunk herself.

They didn't see her driving?!?! So...if you didn't see the person committing the murder -or any other crime- you can't prosecute them?

I wish Richie Zambora had not done this to Heather.

His cheating set in motion a terrible series of events which is destroying this poor woman.

To have the rug pulled out from under you this late in life is just awful.

Not saying that I think Heather was a totally perfect person, no one is.

But she oes not deserve what happened to her, and no amount of money can assuage this much heartache.

Heather has the look of a mortally wounded soul, my prayers are with her.

to commenter # 5 - don't you KNOW that the LAPD is one of the most corrupt Police Depts in the country? they've been being paid off and bribed for decades by the press - look at Hollywood film history if you don't believe me. you KNOW one of those cops dropped a dime on Heather, there's NO WAY they just HAPPENED to be there when this went down

She's a troubled woman, unable to deal with the aging process. Don't get me wrong, I like Heather, but this is a perfect example of what happens to beautiful people when they lose their looks. They have nothing to fall back on. They've never had to develop a personality or anything interesting about themselves because they have always relied on their looks. I wish her well.

Stupid A-Hole cops, these jerks think they do no wrong and their above the law and could treat people like dirt. Its always nice to hear when a cops karma comes back to them & they get Offed. A who's the bigger Jealous Jerk who called them in the first place, hang that person out to dry...Go Heather.

YOU CAN TELL BY THOSE PICTURES THAT SHE'S MESSED UP ON SOMETHING AND SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN DRIVING. WHY DO PEOPLE WHO HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO HIRE A DRIVER OR TAKE A CAB DRIVE IMPAIRED. THEY THINK THEY'RE ABOVE THE LAW.
