Heather Locklear

Arrested

for Hit-and-Run

4/21/2010 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

092908_heather_locklear_ex-1Heather 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. A court date has been set for May 17.

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.

UPDATE:  Locklear's lawyer, Blair Berk, tells TMZ, "Ms. Locklear was cited with a misdemeanor traffic ticket as she is the registered owner of the vehicle.  She was never taken into custody.  The matter is still being looked into as it is not yet clear who was driving the vehicle."

Now if I wuz a protestant Mel Gibson, THIS is the MILF I would be after! Not some stupid Russian golddigger. She doesn't look her best but she still looks pretty good....even in handcuffs! The cigarettes always ruin it.... As for the drugs, well, when the IQ is below 90, whaddya expect? Besides, anybody who lives, marries or just gets sexually involved with a "rockstar" has to be incredibly stupid. But when the little head is in control..........

This doesn't make sense. I thought hit and run required an injury accident. There is no reason to stick around if there are no other cars involved, especially at 4 a.m. What are you supposed to do, hang around and get mugged?

LOL, I was testing too...anyway....hmmmm let me guess, she beat it out of there real quick because she had nothing to hide. I hope they get her for a probation violation, this chick needs to lose her license, she is an addict and shouldn't be driving.

me not you    

I hardly call that "hit-and-run". TMZ in its' usual sensationalist mode intended readers to think she hit a PERSON.

No, hit and run does not require an injury. Any damage of property requires a report, and it is a hit and run.

Misdemeanor hit & run much better to deal with than a DUI. Hate to say it, but that's what I would have done too.

Who's to say she was behind the wheel. It doesn't say if she was or not and no proof she was.
What a crook.

Too bad she didn't run over and KILL Robert Pattinson. If she had done that, I would have been the first person to stand up and shake her hand. Oh well, there's always next time!
