Troubled by substance abuse for some time now, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora was arrested on a DUI charge in Laguna Beach last night (March 25).

The 48-year-old New Jersey native was "pulled over about 10:52 p.m. Tuesday night after police said they spotted him weaving on the road," Laguna Beach Police Sgt. Jason Kravetz told press.

Breaking reports add that "Sambora was driving a Hummer and was with three unidentified women, one adult and two juveniles. He was given a blood alcohol test, and was released on his own recognizance at about 4 a.m."

Scheduled to appear in court on May 7th, Sambora has been in and out of rehab in the past - most recently staying at the Cirque Lodge during Lindsay Lohan's stint in the Orem, Utah facility this past September.
