Heather's legal problems mainly concerned driving. She was pulled over on suspicion of DUI in September 2008, after she was seen driving erratically. The authorities had been tipped off about her driving by a former reporter and editor of "Us Weekly", Jill Ishkanian, who saw Locklear outside of market in Montecito, California.
Heather was pulled over but a blood test to take the no alcohol or illegal narcotics. However, the Santa Barbara County DA's office stated it believed prescription medicine she was using for her anxiety and depression impaired her ability to drive safely.
So in January 2009 Heather pleaded no contest to reckless driving and the DA dismissed the DUI charges. She was also set is to three years of informal probation, a DMV driver safety class and was fined $700.
In April 2010 she was arrested on suspicion of hit-and-run, when a no parking sign was smashed at 4 AM and vehicle debris was found. No criminal charges were found file because of insufficient evidence.
There was another incident in March, 2008 involving a 911 call was made by someone who claimed to be her doctor and said Heather was trying to commit suicide. No other action followed because she appeared to be fine when authorities arrived.
And in June, 2008, she checked into an Arizona medical facility for psychological issues, including anxiety and depression. Heather returned home after four weeks of treatment there.
Years later in January 2012 Locklear's sister called 911 saying Heather was in danger after taking prescription drugs and alcohol. Emergency personnel were sent out and Heather was taken to a hospital in Thousand Oaks, California and was reported to be out of danger the next day.
