Heather Locklear Arrested!

Heather Locklear was arrested Saturday night on suspicion of drunk driving in Montecito, police said Sunday morning.

The 47-year-old actress was reportedly released on Sunday, but only a few details of the charges were released.

Locklear
was arrested by the California Highway Patrol and booked around 8 p.m., the LA Times reported Sgt. Alex Tipolt of the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department as revealing.

Back in June, the former Melrose Place star checked herself into a psychological treatment facility in Arizona.

Heather has been dealing with anxiety and depression. She requested an in-depth evaluation of her medication and entered into a medical facility for proper diagnosis and treatment,” Locklear’s rep, Cece Yorke, said in June.

    Stop grasping for straws. If she wasn’t intoxicated, they would not have pulled her over and arrested her.

    I don’t see why you all are so shocked. Heather is not saint.

  • nicole

    Oops forgot – TMZ and People both says it was DWI.

  • rayanne

    I feel sad for the trouble in her life. She seems like a nice positive person. I hope she works out her problems.

    You need to know the truth before you spout off.
    It is well known that HEATHER IS A REPUBLICAN.

    I’m surprised but not. When someone goes to Rehab it is usually substance abuse. I know they like to say it is for other reasons. But the truth comes out in the end. When people suffer from deep depression they sometimes turn to drugs. Whether it be alcohol or something else. She had a problem, now it is out there for everyone to see. I hope she gets the help she needs. This may be her rock bottom. Remember the outcry when Richie was driving drunk with his daughter… I hope she remembers that and realize how sad this could have been. I have sympathy for anyone trying to get clean and get healthy; but I think more of the innocent people who could be killed because of their carelessness. Too many people die on the roads. She needs to get help before she kills herself or someone else.

    Heather Locklear is a Republican. Lean something before you open upir ignorant mouth.

  • Dieter

    No if you have a beer or two or one or two glasses of champagne you are not intoxicated in the meaing of the law. You can have 0.8 promilles and drive saftey. I think she was under that threshold !!!

    She’s one of you,
    she is not one of us.

    The real problem : beautiful and successful actresses who have a big ego and fragile mental have a difficult time with the aging process , the rise of other younger hot stars as they are relegated in the latest rows of celebrity and are not IT anymore.

    Sad but true. Hollywood is Egowood and it’s tough when you were the IT girl for so long to let your crown for younger girls.

    Heather is a a graduate in psychology. She should try to find another interest, maybe in psychology related matter for the second part of her life.

    Good luck to her ! She is one of my favorite TV actresses.

    What the hell are you talking about. Were you there? Did you give her a breathalizer test?
    They don’t arrest anyone who is NOT legally drunk.

    Who are you mama or publicist? Because you are sure as hell trying to spin this. The woman was drunk driving, and it is illegal, thats the story.

  • James

    lol..I cut abd pasted off the last part of another posters comment into my post.

  • Dieter

    Woman just don´t do drinking and driving because there body is too tiny to drive while intoxicated. Whatever: WHERE WAS JACK WAGNER? HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR HEATHER AND I SERIOUSLY HATE THIS DICK FOR LETTING THIS HAPPEN IF IT IS REALLY TRUE WHAT I STILL DO NOT THINK !!!!

  • let’s be honest here

    She has had a problem for years dealing with getting older in celeb land. It is most diffcult for many to deal with. She was always the blond cute girl, and she is that no more.

    No surprise here.

  • jimmy

    Has she had any work recently? Often when movie people stop getting movie jobs they go to pieces since they have no other life interests. And what others say about the aging process applies too. If you got your jobs solely due to your looks aging is hell.

  • sylcar

    Typical old, washed out hag dealing with her mental instabilities and boredom with prescription drugs, the drug of choice for has-been celebrities.

  • Tinaverse

    I agree with the others that she is probably depressed about aging in Hollywood because her whole identity was based on her looks. She still looks great, but Hollywood is cruel to again women. She still has alot to offer the world if she can get sober. I agree with XX#21 that she should find some other interests. She would be a great spokesperson for a cause that she believes in. Also, I hope that she pulls herself together for her daughter’s sake. She is still pretty young and needs her parents. She won’t be able to do anything unless she quits the substance abuse because she will not be able to think straight or rationally and also addicts tend to think only of themselves. I will keep Heather in my prayers … I’ve always been a fan of hers and this is a really sad story.

    wow.. what a dummy.
    no common sense?

    Heather is still a beautiful woman,you who slander her would faint at her knocking at your door for a date,true she does have mental issues but that goes for most of this world,heather is 1 if not the nicest celebrities in hollywood and thats admirable considering its the latter day sodom

  • raven

    She sure looks better in the pic above than she did in her mug shot, but then who looks good in a mug shot? I’m sure her PR people are hard at work to spin this. She drove under the influence. That’s just stupid, especially when she can afford a driver. Depressed, stressed or whatever, who isn’t stressed?
