Locklear Formally Charged with DUI


"Extra" has learned that Heather Locklear will be charged with the misdemeanor of driving under the influence of prescription drugs.

The Santa Barbara District Attorney's Office has just filed a misdemeanor charge against Heather. The former "Melrose Place" star was arrested in September on suspicion of a DUI. In the CHP report obtained by "Extra," it says that officers suspected Locklear was under the influence of a controlled substance -- but alcohol was ruled out.

Heather's arraignment date has been set for January 26, 2009.
