The statement from the district attorney read: "An investigation conducted by the Ventura County Sheriff's Department revealed that on April 17, 2010, at approximately 4 am, a hit and run, in violation of California Vehicle Code section 20002, occurred on Lakeview Canyon Road in the city of Thousand Oaks, where a driver collided with a "No Parking" sign and left the scene without reporting the collision to law enforcement. Physical evidence established that the vehicle involved in the collision was a 2005 black BMW sedan registered to Richard and Heather Sambora of Westlake Village. Insufficient evidence exists to establish who the driver of the vehicle was at the time of the collision. As a result, no criminal charges will be filed."
Police in Santa Barbara arrested Locklear in 2008 for allegedly driving under the influence of prescription medication. She plead no contest to a reckless driving charge and was placed on three years probation.
