Heather Locklear was charged in a hit and run accident last Saturday (April 17).
The 48-year-old actress reportedly crashed her BMW around 4 a.m. in Westlake Village, California near her home, according to TMZ.
The offense is a misdemeanor, and Heather was only cited and released instead of taken into custody.
In 2008, Heather was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of prescription drugs in Santa Barbara, Calif.
FYI: Heather‘s lawyer, Blair Berk, just released this statement, “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.”
