We've just spoken with Sgt. Jason Kravetz of the Laguna Beach Police Department - and he's got more details on Richie's arrest!
Sgt. Kravetz stated that, after being spotted weaving across several lanes on PCH last night, Sambora's black hummer was pulled over just before 11:00 PM last night with a female passenger. When the officer approached the vehicle, he smelled alcohol and, after several field sobriety tests, decided to give Richie a few tests.
Sambora reportedly turned down the breathalyzer, opting to have his blood tested at the station instead. The cops turned Richie's car over to his female passenger and arrested the rocker for driving under the in, where he was released around 4 AM this morning.
Sambora will have to appear in court on May 7th to face charges stemming from the incident. We'll have more on this story as it develops - stay tuned to us for the latest!
Poor Richie - he's gonna be hating the next couple of months!
