Heather has a history of substance abuse and was arrested for a DUI in 2008. Ultimately, the DUI charge was dropped but two years later she was arrested again for a hit-and-run accident.
Last year, the veteran actress opened up about her past struggles and claimed to be feeling better than ever. "I am feeling great and am taking steps to enrich and better my life," she told Entertainment Tonight. "Currently, I am working on tying up some loose ends regarding certain issues, so I can hit 2017 full steam ahead."
Heather was previously married to rocker Tommy Lee and Bon Jovi musician Richie Sambora, with whom she shares 20-year-old daughter Ava Sambora.
Heather is now reportedly dating Chris Heisser, 56, who according to TMZ has been arrested for DUI just hours after his actress girlfriend was arrested.
