As y'all know, former Melrose Place
star Heather Locklear
in Santa Barbara back in September for suspicion of driving under the influence.
Well, her lawyer got the DUI charge ousted
Locklear instead pled no contest to reckless driving, a misdemeanor.
She'll be placed on three years informal probation, pay a $700 fine, and she must attend a 12-hour drug education course.
Lucky break, Heather!
