While still serving a 3-year probation sentence for a 2008 reckless driving and DUI charge, Heather Locklear has been arrested in connection with a hit-and-run car crash near her L.A. home.
The incident happened after a BMW owned by Locklear mowed down a no parking sign near the 48 year old former Melrose Place star’s home in a posh gated community in Westlake Village, California at about 4am. Saturday morning. The vehicle then left the scene of the crash, but Police have gathered derbis tying the incident to Locklear’s black BMW.
TMZ has reported that security cameras on the property filmed a black BMW in the complex with damage and upon arriving at Locklears home, confirmed that it was her vehicle.
Locklear was arrested for hit-and-run but was not taken into custody since the charges are a misdemeanor. However, even though the vehicle was registered to her, a police investigation is underway to determine if she was the driver of the vehicle at the time of the crash.
Heather Locklear is scheduled to appear in court on May 17.
