Estella Warren Charged with DUI, Hit-and-Run & Battery

The actress/model is charged with misdemeanors after arrest for a drunken car crash, kicking a cop and fleeing police custody

Well, this is certainly not model behavior.

Estella Warren was formally charged Thursday for a May 23 incident in which she allegedly crashed her Toyota Prius into three cars in Los Angeles, and then fled the scene of the accident. The Planet of the Apes star was eventually tracked down by cops, when she failed a sobriety test, resisted arrest, and was finally taken into custody.

But the drama didn't even end there! While at the police station, Warren attempted to make a run for it, but was caught by police before getting very far.

On Thursday, she was charged with four misdemeanors: DUI, hit-and-run driving, battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest. The Planet of the Apes did avoid being charged with a count of escape, which is a felony, because she hadn't formally been arrested at the time she made a run for it.

Warren posted $100,000 bail, and still faces up to two-and-a-half years in prison, should she be convicted on all charges.
