Heather Locklear, one of the stars of TV shows as "T.J. Hooker", "Dynasty", "Melrose Place" and "Spin City", has been charged with driving under the influence of a controlled substance in a suburb of Santa Barbara, California. Ms. Locklear was stopped on September 28, 2008 by a California Highway Patrol officer after she was reported driving erratically as she exited a parking lot. The officer then observed Locklear's car parked on a state highway and blocking traffic. When she was questioned, the officer made the determination that Locklear was "under the influence of something." She was transported to the local police station in Montecito, California, tested for alcohol and drugs, and charged with driving under the influence of prescription medication.
Later that day, Ms. Locklear was released from custody. Her arraignment date was not immediately announced.
