TMZ reports that the crash happened at around 4 AM near the North Ranch Country Club in Westlake Village, Calif., close to Locklear's home. When sheriff's deputies responded to the area later in the day, they found evidence that a car had run up over the curb and damaged a "No Parking" sign. Upon further investigation, deputies confirmed that the car involved in the alleged accident was the actress' BMW.
Locklear's attorney, Blair Berk, said, "Ms. Locklear was cited with a misdemeanor traffic ticket as she is the registered owner of the vehicle. She was never taken into custody. The matter is still being looked into, as it is not yet clear who was driving the vehicle."
In 2008, Locklear was arrested for DUI in Santa Barbara, Calif., after allegedly driving under the influence of prescription medications. In that case, she pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor count of reckless driving. She was sentenced to three years' probation. TMZ reports that the prosecutor in that case is now looking into this incident as a possible probation violation.
