Richie Sambora arrested on suspicion of DUI

LAGUNA BEACH, CA The 48-year-old guitarist was arrested just before 11 p.m. Tuesday after an officer noticed his black Hummer weaving in traffic lanes, said Laguna Beach police Sgt. Jason Kravetz.

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.
