Back in September, we reported that Heather Locklear had been arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs. Locklear has now been officially charged with one count of driving under the influence of drugs, due to prescription medication in her system that Santa Barbara DDA says “could have impaired her ability to safely drive a motor vehicle.”
No alcohol or illegal substances were found in samples taken from her at the time of her arrest.
Comedian Dom Irrera, who played Tony the Limo Driver in The Big Lebowski, has plead no contest to charges of driving under the influence. Irrera was pulled over late in September in North Hollywood on suspicion of drunk driving.
Irrera has been sentenced to three years probation, charged with $1700 in fines and must attend alcohol education classes.
No word if Irrera was drinking White Russians or oat sodas the night of his arrest. He probably should have just stuck to a good sarsaparilla.
Heather Locklear was arrested on suspicion of DUI Saturday night after local resident called cops when they saw her “driving erratically” as she left a parking lot.
California Highway Patrol found Locklear pulled over on the side of the road, blocking a lane, and determined that she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs and arrested her on the spot. No one at this time has come forward filing DUI injury charges due to her driving.
Locklear was tested and came out clean for alcohol. Drug tests are still being conducted. Locklear was later released without having to post bail.
