Locklear Charged With DUI

Heather Locklear has been charged with driving under the influence of prescription drugs, following her September arrest in California.

The 47-year-old star was detained by police in Santa Barbara, California, after she was spotted "driving erratically" in a parking lot.

She was later booked on charges of driving under the influence (DUI) and being under the influence of a controlled substance, and kept in police custody overnight.

Her arrest came just two months after Locklear checked out of an Arizona rehab clinic, where she received treatment for anxiety and depression.

The star is due to be arraigned in Santa Barbara on 26 January, and faces up to six months in jail if convicted.
