Heather Locklear Cleared in Alleged Hit-and-Run!

5/26/2010 7:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Heather Locklear has been cleared in the crime of the century!  She won't be prosecuted for allegedly mowing down a "no parking" sign.

TMZ broke the story  -- that someone hit a "no parking" sign near Heather's home in Westlake Village, CA -- then fled.

The cops investigated but could not place Heather behind the wheel of the BMW in question.

Cops then sent the case to the D.A. for further investigation.  Cops investigated again and sent it back.

Now, the Ventura County D.A. has officially rejected the case.  The D.A. cites "insufficient evidence ... to establish who the driver of the vehicle was ..."

We want to know -- how many tax dollars were spent investigating this?  Ridiculous.

UPDATE: The Santa Barbara D.A. says this will not be a violation of her probation.

Yea your tax dollars may have been spent on something that seems trivial, but face it, that is exactly what police and detectives are paid to do. If someone drove a 5,000 pound vehicle into someone else's property (sign) and destroyed it, they could just as well drove a 5,000 pound vehicle into your mother.

I'm more concerned seeing that picture of her smoking a cigarette. Hope she's stopped since then.

This is serious business...it's not wasting tax payers money.



Mark my words, something like this will happen to her again. Hopefully she won't kill someone WHEN it does happen.

The Police obviously do have it out for Heather. Why else would they waste so much of time and taxpayers money on this???
The D.A. sent it back and instead of accepting the lack of evidence chose to keep after her.
My brick mailbox is damaged but I know it is not worthy of making a federal case of it.

Hey Numb Nuts,



A pane of glass in your window is worth only a couple of bucks. But I'm sure you and the police would take it seriously if there was a bullet hole in it.

TMZ didn't just "break" the story, TMZ effectively forced the investigation by the Sheriff's department that perpetuated a non-story and literally tattle-tailed on poor Heather.



Any other bad driver would have gotten away and the sign would have been fixed lile all the other broken signs and roads in town.



But what is truly malevolent is TMZ ratting out the very celebrities they celebrate and make money from. Shame on you.

Heather my dear you can only drive drunk for so long before you kill someone. This time it was an innocent road sign, next time it might be a person walking down the street. The cops need to stop giving you special treatment. Time for you to get some help.

The police could be using their time more wisely going after illegals who are sending CA into the toilet!
