Estella Warren arrested This post has been corrected. See the note at the bottom for details.

Actress Estella Warren was arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of felony drunk driving after allegedly crashing her Toyota Prius into parked cars and attempting to escape authorities.

The "Planet of the Apes" and "Kangaroo Jack" actress was arrested around 11 p.m. Monday near her home in the 600 block of Harper Avenue in West Los Angeles, LA Now reported. Warren, a former Victoria's Secret model and Maxim's hottest woman of 2000, showed signs of intoxication.

When she was detained, she wiggled out of her handcuffs, kicked the officer and tried to run out of the police station, TMZ reported. As a result, Warren will likely face escape charges in addition to assault, hit and run and DUI charges.

"She was uncooperative and demanding," the rep added.

The actress was booked at 3:10 a.m. and released at 2:35 p.m. after posting bail at $100,000, according to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department website. The site also indicated that the actress was born in 1970, making her 40, not 32 as other reports have indicated. 

She is set to appear in court June 14.

For the Record, 7:59 p.m. May 24: An earlier version of this post said a representative for the L.A. County Sheriff's Department told People that "Warren hit three parked cars in what was considered three separate collisions." The Sheriff’s Department has since told The Times that the People report was in error, and the quote has been removed.
