Uh oh! Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi) got a little tanked before driving his tank yesterday. Apparently the 45-year-old guitarist was spotted weaving his Hummer in and out of traffic lanes before failing a sobriety test in Laguna Beach. Even more interesting is that Sambora had two minors in the car and could be charged with child endangerment as a result.
