It looks like Heather Locklear is in trouble again.

The actress was arrested for allegedly hitting a no-parking sign on a public street early Saturday morning near her gated-community home in Ventura County, Calif., and left without notifying anyone, police say.

The actress, who was driving a black 2005 BMW, was cited for misdemeanor hit-and-run after Ventura County Sheriffs examined debris left at the scene and traced it back to her car, sheriff’s spokesman Ross Bonfiglio tells PEOPLE.


“While Locklear was technically arrested, she was not handcuffed or taken to a station because it was just a misdemeanor charge,” Bonfiglio says. “She was cooperative, but I can’t give any information about any statements she made. She was cited and released. She signed a document stating she would make a court appearance.”

Her attorney, Blair Berk, says Locklear may not have been at the wheel at the time.

“Ms. Locklear was cited with a misdemeanor traffic ticket as she is the registered owner of the vehicle. She was never taken into custody,” Berk says. “The matter is still being looked into as it is not yet clear who was driving the vehicle.”
