Estella Warren Charged Over DUI Arrest

Estella WarrenActress/model Estella Warren is facing time behind bars after she was slapped with four misdemeanor charges following her DUI arrest last month.

The Planet Of The Apes star was detained in Los Angeles late on May 23 after reportedly slamming her Toyota Prius into three parked cars and allegedly driving away. She was held on suspicion of DUI, but allegedly resisted arrest and tried to kick one of the officers.

Warren was escorted to a local police station to be booked for the accusations, but managed to slip out of her handcuffs and run out of the building during proceedings.

Charges for DUI, hit-and-run driving, battery on a cop and resisting arrest were officially filed against Warren on Thursday. She faces up to two-and-a-half years in jail if convicted on all counts, reports TMZ.com.

Reports initially suggested she would face an extra charge for felony escape - but that count was not included because she ran from the police station before she was technically booked for any crime.

Warren is due in court to face the charges next week.
