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."

I guess her neighbor likes her, or he/she wouldn't have waited for the drugs and alcohol to clear her system.

Get help Heather, Just because you are not 25 and beautiful anymore doesn't give you the right to go driving around while drunk and or on drugs. This is the real world and no one wants get hit by your drunken and or drugged up ass, no matter hoe "pretty" you USED to be.

You celebrities! You have enough money to hire a driver...take a cab...why don't you?!?! If you want to kill yourselves, have at it, but don't take innocent people with you. This time a sign - next time a person! Shameless!

I have lost respect for this woman over the past couple of years, first she is arrested and she is all doped up, then she lets her 12 year old daughter model in clothes fit for a prostitute, now a hit and run. What a shame. Looks like another celebrity kid (Ava) will be messed up.

I can't believe they are calling running up a curb and hitting a street sign "hit and run" .. that should be more like destruction of county property.. call it what it is!!!

Wow, I use to be a big fan of Heather. After the first DUI I was disappointed, but now I don't care what happens to her. As for Trish, I for one have never hit and damaged county/city property such as a street sign or anything else someone has to pay for to be fixed. Nor do I drive under the influence. The tax payers have to pay for that sign to be replaced. This woman makes more money then any of us writing on this site.
