In a nice "Whew!" moment, TMZ reports that Heather Locklear’s DUI case has been dismissed, and she’s pled no contest to reckless driving instead, a lesser offense that will probably only lead to probation and a $700 fine.


The Melrose Place star was arrested in September after a witness saw her driving erratically and called the police. Cops thought she might have been operating her vehicle under theinfluence of prescription drugs, which showed up in her blood tests later.


The lucky actress was represented by popular celebrity lawyer Blair Berk in court this morning, but Heather herself was not to be found in the courtroom. Berk has also fought the DUI battle for celebs like Mel Gibson, Kiefer Sutherland and even Heather’s ex, Richie Sambora.
