Rock star Richie Sambora was arrested on suspicion of DUI in Laguna Beach, Calif., after being pulled over for reportedly driving erratically at approximately 10:52 p.m. Tuesday night. Richie, 48, was driving a Hummer and was with three unidentified females — one adult and two juveniles — at the time of his arrest. Internet reports claim that Richie's 10-year-old daughter, Ava, was one of the passengers. The Laguna Beach Police Department alleges that he failed sobriety tests and was detained. He was also given a blood test before being released at 4 a.m. Wednesday morning.
Richie is no stranger to alcohol problems: In June 2007 he entered a treatment facility telling Today, “I was just drinking too much and I needed to get my life together.” Richie is scheduled to appear in court on May 7 in Newport Beach, Calif., for the charges.
