MONTECITO, Calif. – Heather Locklear was arrested and held in Santa Barbara County on Saturday, Access Hollywood has confirmed. A spokesman for the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department told Access that the actress was arrested by the California Highway Patrol and released on Sunday.


According to The Associated Press, the actress, 47, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of a controlled substance in Montecito, a wealthy area of Santa Barbara that’s home to celebs including Oprah and Rob Lowe.


The former Melrose Place star was reportedly pulled over by a CHP officer on Saturday afternoon after she was witnessed “driving erratically” upon leaving a parking lot, a CHP spokesman told the AP.


Locklear was taken into custody, where she was reportedly tested for alcohol and drugs. She was reportedly booked at 7 p.m. on suspicion of driving under the influence of prescription medication.


According to People, two months ago, Locklear was released from an Arizona facility where she spent four weeks receiving treatment for anxiety and depression.


“Heather’s feeling really great,” a friend told the mag at the time. “And she looks beautiful, just radiant.”
