The Melrose Place actress was apparently ARRESTED on Saturday night around 4am after the mess drove her BMW onto a curb and over a No Parking sign in Westlake Village, CA!
She then proceeded to do the intelligent thing…and tried to flee the scene!
Authorities somehow linked her to everything, and upon arrival at her house saw that her vehicle’s damage matched that of the accident! Locklear was charged with a misdemeanor, cited, and then released.
What was she doing up driving around that late at night?? She’s lucky it was a parking sign and not a person!
We know that having your only bit of relevancy on the chopping block for cancellation must suck, but c’mon!
According to The Telegraph newspaper in England, a 40-year-old man was pulled over by the police as he drove a modified electric Barbie car â€” maximum speed, 4 miles an hour â€” on a street near his home in Clacton-on-Sea, England.
Paul Hutton, a former Royal Air Force aeronautical engineer who is studying electrical engineering, later admitted in court that he had been drinking. â€œI was very surprised to get done for drink-driving, but I was a twit to say the least,â€ he said.
He had added larger wheels to the toy car, which is designed for toddlers to scoot around the living room. â€œIâ€™m in the third year of my electrical engineering course, and it was a little project I was doing with my son, who is doing a car mechanics course,â€ he said. â€œWhen it was done, I couldnâ€™t resist the temptation to take it out.â€
The Sun reports that Mr. Hutton said he was driving it to a friendâ€™s house when he was pulled over. The police administered a breathalyzer test, which showed him to be over the legal limit.
â€œIâ€™m not unhappy with my punishment, just a little bit surprised,â€ he said.
Because Mr. Hutton had been previously cited for drunken driving within the past 10 years, his license was revoked for three years, and he was ordered to pay $130 in court fees.
â€œThis is most unusual,â€ said Magistrate Neil Munson. â€œI have never seen the like of it in 15 years on the bench.â€
While it was not clear exactly which model Mr. Hutton was driving, Fisher Price builds a Barbie Jeep that runs off a rechargeable 12-volt battery and retails for $250.
â€œThe vehicle is not even capable of doing the speed of a mobility scooter,â€ said Mr. Munson, â€œand could be outrun by a pedestrian.â€
