Richie Sambora Busted For DUI

Welp, it looks like those recent stints in rehab didn't really take. TMZ is reporting that Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora was arrested for drunk driving in The Real OC of Laguna Beach, CA late last night ... here is his lovely mugshot:

TMZ has learned Richie Sambora was arrested for DUI in Laguna Beach, Calif. Law enforcement sources tell us the Bon Jovi guitarist was pulled over by the Laguna Beach PD just before 11:00 PM last night. Cops say they observed him driving erratically in a black Hummer and pulled him over. He failed numerous field sobriety tests and was detained for DUI. At the station Sambora opted to take a blood test rather than blow into a breathalyzer. Laguna Beach PD tells TMZ there's no indication of drugs. There was a female passenger in the car at the time of the arrest, but, we're told, "she's not a celebrity." Sambora was released around 4:00 AM this morning.

Paging Dr. Drew and his Celebrity Rehab. There is NO excuse for endangering the lives of others by getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle while intoxicated. Maybe a stint in the pokey will help finally sober Richie Sambora up. [Source]
