'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.

hot snot    

she's quite mediocre looking at best. Not stunning or pretty...just plain. I guess its nice to have actresses that aren't always the kind that make others feel ugly. i have never seen her act, never watched anything she has been in. I hope her acting makes up for her looks

Now if any of us peasants had done the exact thing, we would still be behind bars... But alas, she is a blonde, celeb and there will be nothing charged against her, and damages will be swept away. Enough to make you puke, I say!

Can anyone tell me how is that a motorist can crash-into THREE PARKED CARS, walk-away from the scene, and not be immediately cited, and arrested?

I'm new, in town.

SHE LEFT HER LICENSE there and walked a half a block home to call 911 and told the cops she would meet them back there and when they got there she came back. THAT IS NOT HIT AND RUN PEOPLE. She was on the phone with the police

Hello, this is January Jones from We are Marshall, Dirty Dancing 2, Love Actually, Anger Management and more importantly MULTI award winning show Mad Men. She is a great actress. Watch some Mad Men and see.

She just isn't the typical coked up sleeping around driving drunk hollywood slut like most are. Even though apparently she got some after the award show the other night.

And some that are commenting on her looks. PLEASE...she would wipe the floor on the looks department with anyone on this board. I don't see any of you on the covers of GQ, Maxim, Vanity Fair etc etc.

If anyone of us poor sods had done the same thing, we'd be carted off and thrown in the slammer. There might not have been signs of alcohol but what about prescription drugs?

Heres what normal citizens do when they are being harassed by people THEY CALL THE POLICE! NOT CRASH THEIR CAR, FLEE THE SCENE AND THEN CRAWL BACK WITH SOME PATHETIC EXCUSE UR BEING CHASED BY PAPARAZZI! WHERE ARE UR PHONE RECORDS DO***ENTING THIS ACCUSATION?? ITs absurd someone is allowed to use such a pathetic excuse, every person in america has a cell phone if someone is harassing u than do***ent it, call 911. Dont flee the scene with such a pathetic excuse. I dont believe it and to not come back home until the wee morning hours seems like someone who was out partying not too concerned about their smashed up range rover. Please prosecute this LOSER!
