Heather Locklear Arrested for DUI

Heather Locklear

Actress Heather Locklear, 47, was arrested Saturday evening on suspicion of driving under the influence in Santa Barbara County, Calif.
"Around 4:30 p.m., a female witness saw Heather Locklear driving erratically while leaving a parking lot in Montecito," California Highway Patrol spokesman Tom Marshall told People Magazine.  "The witness said Locklear was revving her engine loudly, and backed over a pair of sunglasses several times."
Apparently, the witness then saw Locklear stopped on a nearby highway, exiting her vehicle.
"The witness called 911 because she was concerned for Locklear’s safety," Marshall said.  "When a CHP officer arrived, Locklear was found seated inside her vehicle, which was partially blocking the roadway."
Reportedly, Locklear appeared "disoriented and impaired," and was taken to a local CHP station where she was given drug and alcohol tests, Marshall said.  Locklear was cooperative.
"Alcohol was ruled out as a factor, but based on the officer’s observations, we believe Locklear was under the influence of prescription medication," Marshall said.
Locklear was arrested on suspicion of DUI and being under the influence of a controlled substance.  She was booked at a local jail around 7 p.m., and released hours later.
It was not mentioned what kind of car Locklear was driving.
