Actress Heather Locklear was charged with driving under the influence of prescription drugs Monday. The 47-year-old actress was arrested back in September in Montecito when California Highway Patrol found her car parked on a highway, causing traffic.
A toxicology test showed that although Locklear had no illegal drugs or alcohol, there was prescription medication in her system. Lee Carter, senior deputy district attorney for Santa Barbara County, California said Locklear was charged with a misdemeanor.
Locklear is expected to be arraigned on January 26.
