Bon Jovi guitarist and Philadelphia Soul minority owner Richie Sambora was arrested by police in Laguna Beach, California late last night for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol, TMZ is reporting. The website says police say they observed him driving erratically in a black Hummer and pulled him over. He failed a field sobriety test and was detained, TMZ reports. Sambora, who was in rehab for alcoholism last year, recently purchased a luxury condo at the Residences at Two Liberty Place.

Meanwhile, TMZ now says Sambora could be criminally charged with child endangerment.as his 10-year-old daughter Ava (born to Sambora and ex-wife Heather Locklear) and another child were in the car, as was another adult.
