Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora has been arrested in Laguna Beach for alleged DUI -- drinking and driving.

Richie Sambora mugshot - arrested for DUISambora, who hasn't been regularly seen in public with any women since breaking up with fiery Denise Richards, has found himself in a whole new mess o' trouble for an alcohol-related crime while rehab is fresh in his review mirror. Talk about livin' on a prayer.

Details are still emerging, but Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora was stopped for driving erratically on a Laguna roadway and late Tuesday night -- and when officials smelled booze, he took a breathalyzer test and promptly found himself in jail.

Curiousity is certainly piqued because reports have Sambora arrested in his black Hummer with a woman and two girls. It's been confirmed that one of the girls in the car with Richie was his 10-year-old daughter, Ava Elizabeth Sambora.

Ava's mom is Richie's ex Heather Locklear -- who no doubt has attorneys drawing up papers right now to withhold custody of the girl from her DUI dad.

Oh yeah -- this story is just beginning...
