Sambora was given field sobriety tests and arrested without incident. He was booked at the Laguna Beach jail and released at 4 a.m., Kravetz said Wednesday.
"He was very cooperative with all the staff," Kravetz said. A woman and two girls were passengers in the car, said Kravetz, who declined to release their names.
Sambora was given notice to appear in court May 7 on one misdemeanor count of driving under the influence, Kravetz said.
The Associated Press was attempting to reach a publicist for Sambora for comment.
Sambora is a founding member of Bon Jovi. The band's last album, "Lost Highway," was released in 2007.
