Heather Locklear, Hollywood starlet of Melrose Place, has been charged with a misdemeanor hit and run accident. According to police reports, Ms. Locklear ran into a parking sign around 4am in the morning and left the scene without calling authorities.
A neighborhood resident called police several hours later reporting they heard a car crash in the early morning. Locklear’s BMW was spotted on surveillance video with front end damage to the car. Her attorney has confirmed that the car is registered to Locklear but has declined to comment whether or not she was driving.
Locklear, who has had her own battle with addiction, was arrested in 2008 for driving under the influence. She is currently serving a three-year probation term after she pleaded no contest to reckless driving. The DUI charge was ultimately dropped.
Since her divorce from Richie Sambora, she has been romantically linked to her former Melrose Place co-star, Jack Wagner. A couple of weeks ago, it was rumored the couple had split. Wagner who has been a sober soldier for a long period of time, has not only been Locklear’s lover but best friend as well. Locklear’s rep denies the two have split but it appears it may be on the rocks.
For Locklear’s poor driving skills, someone needs to take her car keys away and call a car service. Stay home Heather!
