'Mad Men' Star

Leaves Scene

After 4-Car Wreck

6/11/2010 9:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0611-jones-getty3-exc-credit"Mad Men" star January Jones allegedly slammed into three parked cars and left the scene.  

LAPD tells TMZ January was driving a Range Rover around 9 PM last night when she allegedly lost control, hit the other cars and caused some major damage.  We're told a witness reported the accident to police and claimed that January fled on foot after saying, "I can't deal with this commotion." 

Police tell us that while officers were on scene investigating January returned and claimed she fled because paparazzi were trailing her.

January was not cited or arrested, but her car was impounded and police have launched an investigation.  Police say no alcohol or drugs were involved.

As for why paps might have been trying so hard to get a shot of Jones -- photos of her doing a "walk of shame" were all over the Internet yesterday, showing her arriving home in a taxi in the same dress she wore to an event the night before (Below).

UPDATE:  Police tell TMZ Jones told them she was at The London West Hollywood Hotel watching the Lakers lose and then drove home.  She says several paparazzi started following her and she lost control of her car and struck 3 parked vehicles.  Jones says the photogs were harassing her so she left her license and walked a half a block to her home and called 911.  The dispatcher told Jones cops had just arrived on scene so she returned.  We're told there will not be a hit-and-run investigation.

And cops say they did not administer a field sobriety test because there was no evidence of alcohol.

Celebrities get away with too much. If you or I had done this, we'd be off to jail. It's sickening...

She was in a mad rush to get home and have her carpet cleaned by her maid. It just couldn't wait any longer. You know when you take your xanax and realize your carpet needs a cleaning, nothing can stop you from proceeding to all the action.

No **** TMZ, you had them up on this very site. I love how this site tries to put itself above the paparazzi when that is all really what TMZ is.



Even on the show, they like to point out when photogs are doing shady stuff, "that isn't one of our guys".



TMZ=S*** Paparazzi

When did Bobby Flay divorce Stephanie March? I think you missed the boat on this one - the answer is: HE DIDN'T! He's not married to January Jones.

Too Funny, it's like most of you didn't even read what the police told TMZ. For all those saying she should be in jail. NOONE would go to jail in this situation. She hit a few parked and UNOCCUPIED cars, its not like she injured or killed someone and just flat out left the scene.

You mean bambi ran? Strange, didn’t anyone over there in Tinseltown give bambi elocution lessons on how to handle the press, surely there must be a course or a school Lilo or a myriad of celebs could suggest bambi look into? After all what’s the point of being a tabloid star if you don’t enjoy appearing in the tabloids?
