After being popped for drunk driving this week in Laguna Beach, it looks as if Richie Sambora could be criminally charged with child endangerment as well.

The Bon Jovi guitarist was arrested for DUI with his 10-year-old daughter Ava in the car, along with another juvenile and another adult – a woman.

This doesn’t bode well for the 48-year-old rocker.

If Sambora is proven to have been drunk at the time he was pulled over (11 p.m. Tuesday), he could be charged with endangering the kids.

Police sources say Richie Sambora has not been charged with endangerment but the Laguna Beach P.D. is “actively investigating” the case.

On another note, police sources report that, after Sambora was busted, the cops called Heather Locklear, Ava’s mother and Richie’s former wife.

Heather authorized the woman in the car to drive her daughter home.
