Crappy ratings are no longer Melrose Place vixen Heather Locklear's biggest problems. The sultry soap star is facing up to 90 days in the clink. Locklear, who did a stint in rehab not so long ago, may have violated her probation when she hit a no parking sign at around 4 a.m. and fled the scene. We're guessing she probably wasn't out getting milk at that time. Police say that Locklear's BMW went over the curb and struck the sign. However, the person who heard the incident didn't file a report with officials until the following evening. Having nothing better to do with their time, police interviewed the guard at Locklear's complex and confirmed he saw a black Beamer with right wheel damage. Video footage shows Locklear coming back into the complex hours after the accident. And part of Heather's car was found at the scene of the "crime," the crime being that Locklear failed to report the thing that went bump in the night. Despite the fact that nobody was injured in the crash but the sign, Locklear was issued a ticket for misdemeanor crime. Ross Bonfiglio of the Ventura County Sherriff's Department says, "We didn't take her into physical custody. She still held an answer and has to appear in court to answer to the charges. Because of the nature of crime, it happened 16 hours after the actual crime and it's a low level misdemeanor we went with the site and release option. She wasn't handcuffed, thrown in the back of a police car and has no mug shot, but it's still technically an arrest." The problem is that Locklear is still on probation for reckless driving in 2008. But if the DA plans on going after Locklear, they'll first have to prove that Amanda Woodward was indeed behind the wheel of the car when the accident occurred, which is going to be difficult with no witnesses. The district attorney who tried Locklear the first time around says, "I have left a message with the investigating agency. I need to confirm that the person involved was indeed Heather Locklear. Once that determination is made the appropriate action will be taken."
