Heather Locklear Arrested for Hit-and-Run

Heather-locklear Heather Locklear was arrested for allegedly hitting a no-parking sign near her home early Saturday morning and failing to stop after the accident.  She was cited for misdemeanor hit-and-run after Ventura County Sheriffs examined debris left at the scene and traced it back to her car, sheriff's spokesman Ross Bonfiglio said.

"While Locklear was technically arrested, she was not handcuffed or taken to a station because it was just a misdemeanor charge," Bonfiglio says. "She was cooperative, but I can't give any information about any statements she made. She was cited and released. She signed a document stating she would make a court appearance."

Her attorney, Blair Berk, says Locklear may not have been at the wheel at the time.  "Ms. Locklear was cited with a misdemeanor traffic ticket as she is the registered owner of the vehicle. She was never taken into custody," Berk says. "The matter is still being looked into as it is not yet clear who was driving the vehicle."

"It appears she drove up on a curb and hit the sign," says Bonfiglio. "We don't have any hard evidence that alcohol was involved. We don't know if anyone was in the car with her at the time."

Her court date is set for May 17.  Heather is still on probation for reckless driving stemming from an arrest in September of 2008.  If she is found guilty this could be considered a violation of probation, which means she could get all her back time, up to 90 days in jail.

Funny, at the end of the new Melrose Place her character was taken to jail.  Life imitating art?  (Yes, I watched that show.  Yes, it was awful.)

Yeah. I saw this. It made me sad.

I read this headline last night and I was going to write about it and use "Heather Locklear Hit and Run Pauline" for the post title.

I ran it by Gabe and Laurie. It turns out that no one gets my obscure punk rock / pop culture jokes so I'm glad you handled it.

Sarah - I'll have that X song in my head all day now. And that's not a bad thing!

Sarah wins this thread. Although I will admit that my ... um ... nausea upon reading the headline was abated when I read she didn't hit any people.
