Heather Locklear Arrested for Hit-and-Run

4/21/2010 10:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0421_heather_locklear_EXHeather Locklear was arrested for hit-and-run last Saturday ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ at around 4 AM, someone heard a crash near North Ranch Country Club in Westlake Village, CA.

The person who heard the crash didn't call the Ventura County Sheriff's Department until 7:48 PM that night.  Deputies went out to the area and found a knocked over "no parking" sign and obvious signs of a car that went up the curb, striking the sign.  

Deputies confirmed through investigation that the car in question was Locklear's black BMW.  The collision was very close to Locklear's home.

Deputies then went to Locklear's home, saw damage to the BMW that was consistent with the collision, and arrested her for hit-and-run.

The offense is a misdemeanor, so Locklear was not taken into custody -- just cited and released.  An official from the Ventura County Sheriff's Department tells TMZ a hit-and-run citation constitutes an "arrest."

Back in 2008, Locklear was arrested in Santa Barbara for allegedly driving under the influence of prescription medications.


She ended up pleading no contest to a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving and was placed on three years informal probation.  A Santa Barbara prosecutor tells us he's looking into the latest incident, which could be a probation violation.

You know it's easy for people to attack others. How many of us have committed things and got away with it? These people are human too they are just alot richer than the rest of us. Many of us should know loneliness, when you got money everyone is your friend, who can you trust. These people are victims too! She obviously could use a "GOOD FRIEND" to talk to. Hey before you all start bad mouthing someone, kindly take a good look in the mirror before you start attacking others. Heather just needs someone to talk to and answer some questions she may have. Take care Heather I will say a prayer for you.

Heather Locklear is so incredibly perfect...far's I'm concerned, she gets a pass on the jump the curb thing. She can do no wrong. I'd give her a pass on vehicular homocide. A glut of people on earth, very few as attractive as Ms Locklear. No contest.

hitting a sign does not constitute a "hit and run" , they just stuck it to her because of who she is!

Those Santa Barbara Cops are just the worse ---I spent a night in jail and they finally had to drop the charges because I wasn't legally drunk...I will NEVER go back there or to the whole state of California again, the most humiliating thing I've ever experienced so can only imagine what Heather must be going through.
