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.

Heather Locklear needs to spend some real time behind bars. If this was a normal everyday person who had been in as much trouble as she has been they would be in jail. She is simply getting away with it because she is famous. What's going to happen when she hits and kills someone instead of running over a mailbox? Stop giving her special treatment.

She looks drunk and bloated. It wouldn't be the first time she was caught in the act.

Don`t understand why with her money she doesn`t hire a driver when she wants to get smoked.
