Actress Heather Locklear in hit-and-run incident

Thursday April 22, 2010

Melrose Place actress Heather Locklear has been arrested for an alleged hit-and-run incident, US reports have said.

The 48-year-old was involved in a crash in Westlake California where a 'No Parking' sign had been knocked down.

Police were called to the scene by a neighbour in the area, who heard a crash at approximately 4am.

According to US reports, an investigation by officers found debris at the scene and found the car involved had been the actress' black BMW.

"Ms. Locklear was cited with a misdemeanor traffic ticket as she is the registered owner of the vehicle," Heather's lawyer says.

"She was never taken into custody. The matter is still being looked into as it is not yet clear who was driving the vehicle."

Heather is due to appear in court on May 17.
