“Planet of the Apes” Actress Assults Cops


The Associated Press report that actress Estella Warren allegedly crashed her car into several vehicles and later assaulted a Los Angeles police officer before trying to escape custody.

Officer Sarah Faden said Tuesday that Warren, famed for her roles in “Planet of the Apes” and “Kangaroo Jack,” crashed into three separate cars parked in the city’s Wilshire area. A resident heard the crashes and pursued Warren and forced her to stop.

Faden says when police arrived, Warren was arrested on suspicion of DUI. She then allegedly assaulted an officer so was re-arrested for felony battery.

At the police station, Warren allegedly slipped out her handcuffs then ran out of a holding area before being recaptured.
