What's the best way to get people interested in a bottomed-out acting career? You could study with masters of your craft, do some cerebral theater roles and- haha, just kidding! This is L.A. If you want attention, drunk-drive into multiple parked cars, flee the scene, get arrested, and then kick the cops and escape from the police station! That's what Estella Warren, "star" of yesteryear megahits got up to last night.
Last night the increasingly irrelevant actress of Tim Burton's Planet Of The Apes and Kangaroo Jack, set a new precedent.
According to TMZ,
The crazy incident occurred Monday night just before midnight. Cops say Warren was driving in L.A.when she struck 3 parked cars in her Toyota Prius. Warren drove away but cops spotted her and placed her under arrest for driving under the influence, though not before she resisted and kicked an officer.
Warren was taken to the police station in handcuffs, and during the booking process she managed to get out of her handcuffs and then run out the back door! Warren was quickly recaptured.
Wow. Paz De La Huerta, you are officially off the hook as my go-to "celebrity mess." [GO HERE and HERE to get up to speed on Paz De La Huerta's rapsheet of shitshows!] Estella, you've raised the bar. While so many of your peers (and I mean that strictly in terms of your listed profession) would settle for a simple DUI, or perhaps a belligerent drunken encounter, you've really brought it home. And with a daring escape from a police station? My hat is off to you. You are now officially the Handcuff Princess of West Hollywood. Lindsay and Paris, the next time you get arrested it had better be for shooting an AK-47 into the air while throwing flaming liquor bottles into a preschool, or frankly, it's not moving the needle.
Come to think of it, Chris Nolan's been pretty tight-lipped about the cast and plot of the new Batman movie. Are we sure Estella isn't the new Batman? After all, not just anyone can slip a pair of cuffs and fight their way out of the Wilshire Police Station. LAPD, I know you're embarrassed by this incident, but every minute that Estella sits in her cell, awaiting trial "on DUI, assault and felony escape charges," The Scarecrow is free to poison our water supply without obstruction. Free Estella!!!
