Heather Locklear: Set Up, Ratted Out By Celeb Gossip Narc!

by at . Comments

In the strangest development ever, the woman who called 911 and got Heather Locklear arrested the other day is a former Us Weekly staffer who was under investigation by the FBI - and she's the one who tipped off the paparazzi!

Jill Ishkanian allegedly hacked into Us Weekly's computer system to locate celebs after she left the magazine, and was following Locklear in the Montecito area.

Ishkanian watched the actress go to a market. When Heather got into her car, Ishkanian called 911, even though the star's car wasn't even moving at the time.

To make matters worse, immediately after Ishkanian called 911, she called a paparazzi agency to give them a heads up that Heather was about to be popped!

Nevertheless, the California Highway Patrol says the motives of Jill Ishkanian are irrelevant to the DUI arrest and the case is in the hands of prosecutors.

One CHP official told TMZ they were unaware that Jill Ishkanian called the paparazzi immediately after she made the 911 call - but it has no bearing.

The decision on whether to prosecute Heather Locklear will be based on the results of the drug tests administered - those due in around three weeks.

The CHP says it has received calls from other people who tell the same basic story as Ishkanian, who also gave a written statement. A CHP spokesperson says "There's no reason to believe the witness is less than credible."
