Heather Locklear's DUI charge was dismissed Friday after Locklear pleaded no contest to reckless driving in a Santa Barbara courtroom. Reckless driving is a lesser offense than DUI in California.
Locklear had originally been charged with misdemeanor driving under the influence of prescription drugs in September. Locklear was reportedly stopped by police after she was seen "driving erratically" in a parking lot.
According to MSNBC, as a result of the plea, Locklear must pay a $700 fine, attend a 12-hour drug education program and be placed on three years probation.
