LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. — Following his arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence Tuesday night, Richie Sambora could also be facing child endangerment charges, Access Hollywood has learned.
A woman and two girls were passengers in the car, said Laguna Beach police Sgt. Jason Kravetz, who declined to release their names. But Celebrity Web site TMZ.com reports that a police source said Sambora’s 10-year-old daughter with ex-wife Heather Locklear, Ava, was in the car with him.
The 48-year-old Bon Jovi guitarist was given field sobriety tests and arrested without incident. He was booked at the Laguna Beach jail and released at 4 a.m., Kravetz said Wednesday.
“He was very cooperative with all the staff,” Kravetz said.
Sambora, who had two stints in rehab last year, was given notice to appear in court May 7 on one misdemeanor count of driving under the influence, Kravetz said.
Ken Sunshine, a spokesman for Bon Jovi, had no comment.
Sambora is a founding member of Bon Jovi. The band’s last album, “Lost Highway,” was released in 2007.
