The model-actress Estella Warren was charged yesterday with DUI, hit-and-run driving, battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest stemming from her alleged drunk-driving adventure last month
TMZ said that in May, Warren was picked up by Los Angeles police on suspicion of driving under the influence, but managed to slip out of her handcuffs. She ran out the back of the police station.
“She was really hammered,” a law enforcement source told the celebrity website.
The “Planet of the Apes” actress was described by LAPD officials as highly uncooperative, belligerent and allegedly hit one officer in the face after she was detained.
Yesterday, the Los Angeles City Attorney formally charged Warren with DUI, hit-and-run driving, battery on a police officer and resisting arrest – offences which could yield two and a half years of jail time if she is convicted.
Warren, who’s out on $100,000 bail is scheduled to be arraigned June 17.
