    The new year is bringing a clean slate for Heather Locklear.

    E! News has confirmed that Santa Barbara prosecutors have dismissed a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence after the actress pleaded no contest to a lesser charge stemming from her Sept. 27 arrest.

    The plea, for misdeameanor reckless driving, was entered by attorney Blair Berk.

    Locklear was fined $700 fine, placed on informal probation for three years and ordered to attend a 12-hour drug-education program, according to the Santa Barbara District Attorney.

    The once and possibly future Melrose Place star was charged with DUI on Nov. 17 after a somewhat lengthy investigation into her roadside arrest.
