LOS ANGELES (AP) -- An attorney for the woman whose 911 call led to Heather Locklear's arrest says she also snapped paparazzi photos, but alerted authorities for safety's sake.

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.
