LOS ANGELES (AP) - October 1, 2008
Attorney Nicholas Tepper says Jill Ishkanian, who operates
Sunset Photo & News, acted heroically when she reported an erratic
driver Saturday. Ishkanian photographed Locklear's sobriety test,
then sold the pictures to TMZ for more than $27,000, Tepper said.
Tepper called the ensuing TMZ posts accusing Ishkanian of
alerting a paparazzo to Locklear's impending arrest "lies and
innuendo." A phone message for TMZ head Harvey Levin was not
immediately returned Wednesday evening.
The California Highway Patrol said Locklear showed "obvious
impairment," but alcohol has been ruled out.
