Heather Locklear -- Surveillance Video

4/21/2010 5:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0421_heather_locklear_EX_2_GettyLaw enforcement sources tell TMZ Heather Locklear's swanky neighborhood security system is what led deputies to her doorstep last Saturday ... which then led to her arrest for hit-and-run ... but there may be a big problem fingering Heather as the driver.

Sources say police checked the surveillance footage from the guard shack at her Westlake Village neighborhood sometime after her alleged crash ... and saw footage of Heather driving her black BMW into the complex ... and the BMW had damage in the right wheel well area consistent with the accident scene.

But here's the hole in the case.  The video was recorded many hours after the accident ... so even if there's clear proof Heather's car was in the accident at 4 AM Saturday, there is no smoking gun placing her behind the wheel at that time.

Cops also collected debris from the crash scene -- which matched up with Locklear's damaged ride ... but still, there's no clear proof Heather was the driver.

As we first reported, Locklear was arrested Saturday night for misdemeanor hit-and-run.

WOW really since when is this a serious crime...Its only big because she is a celebrity and people love nothing but to see them get arrested..I believe there are more serious crimes that the cops should be focusing on..Best part is reading the comments of people who think she needs to pay for her horrible crime..

I don't see anywhere where it says she damaged the sign or whatever it was that she hit. If she only damaged her own car, and there was no other property damage, I can see reason to stick around. Police usually come when there is bodily injury; they don't even like to come out if you damaged another car -- they simply expect the respective drivers to exchange i.d.'s and insurance info, as far as i know.



Maybe she was under the influence and wanted to go home and let it wear off before the police came. But even if she was not under the influence, it's pretty stupid for a woman alone to get out of her car late at night and wait for police unless there's damage she needs to pay for, and even then she could leave a note attached to whatever she damaged (if she can't immediately identify the owner) and offer to pay for the damage. I don't know if that's legally sound, but it seems better to me than running away. And by the time the police find the note and go to her house, alcohol, if present, might no longer be in her system to the extent necessary for prosecution. Leaving a note (if other property was damaged) would have shown a better attitude.



However, a friend of mine was killed by a hit and run driver who ran her car off the road. Then he hid for a day or two until the booze apparently was out of his system. He still faced criminal charges of some type, probably vehicle manslaughter, but DUI charges could not be added.



If Heather was under the influence, maybe she figured that misdemeanor hit and run with only property damage was less serious than an other DUI arrest.

I don't know but I get the feeling some celebrity preferential treatment is in play here as it was during her DUI arrest and court dates. The court will enable this woman into the grave.
