Heather Locklear charged with California DUI - drugs

California DUI criminal defense lawyers at and California DUI criminal defense attorneys at report that Heather Locklear has been charged with a misdemeanor California DUI - driving under the influence in connection with her arrest in September.

Heather Locklear has been charged with driving under the influence of presciption medications stemming from her September arrest.

Santa Barbara District Attorney's office filed the complaint Monday, alleging that Locklear was driving under the influence of drugs, "to wit: prescription medications," Sept. 27, the day she was arrested.

That was when a celebrity news reporter called 911 to report that Locklear appeared to be driving drunk, and then took photographs of the actress' California DUI arrest.

Jill Ishkanian, a former reporter and editor at Us Weekly magazine, called police the night of Sept. 27, saying Locklear appeared intoxicated, after what Ishkanian's lawyer, Nick Tepper, described as a chance encounter with Locklear in a Montecito, Calif., market. He denied that Ishkanian was following Locklear or that she set up the star to be arrested and photographed.
