LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. – Laguna Beach police are recommending that Bon Jovi's Richie Sambora be charged with child endangerment after he was pulled over for drunken driving with his daughter in the car.
“We did ask for a misdemeanor child endangerment charge to be filed against him,” Sgt. Jason Kravitz told E! News. “We also recommended they charge him with misdemeanor DUI.”
Kravitz says it is up to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office to make the ultimate decision on what charges Sambora will face.
The Bon Jovi guitarist was arrested March 25 after Laguna Beach police noticed his car was weaving in traffic. Ava, Sambora's 10-year-old daughter with ex-wife Heather Locklear, was in the car along with another unidentified juvenile girl. A woman, believed to be the rocker's girlfriend, was also along for the ride.
Sambora is on tour with Bon Jovi. He is scheduled to appear in court for his arraignment May 7.
