'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.

I was there when it happened, and there were NO paparazzi (harassing her or otherwise) when she left the scene, just a couple local residents trying to help her with her car. I don't know for a fact if she was drunk or not, but she was most definitely stumbling and out of it. She almost got hit by a car just walking across the street.

I have no clue who this woman is! She can't be that interesting to the paps.

Firstly, January Jones is a fine actress and person by all accounts. The media is hyping this and quickly dismissing her explanation. I am not one who usually takes in what 'famous' people use for excuses, but what she says is plausible, there was NO evidence of alcohol, and it was simply an unfortunate incident!

She hit three parked cars and there's "no evidence of alcohol"?!? Well, in my neck of the woods, hitting three parked cars would guarantee a breathalyzer test, a blood test, oh and a charge for leaving the scene of an accident.

Hope everyone/thing & January are ok. She was probably just scared & ran off. We all make mistakes & use poor judgement.

She was obviously drunk and/or on drugs. Sober people don't crash into parked cars unless perhaps they are having a seizure or heart attack which clearly she was not. She called Bobby because she was wasted and freaked out.

That's her best faking an orgasm actress face.
She was snorting a line off the dash & had to flush it.

If papparazzi were following her and that was why she left the scene-- why aren't there pictures of the accident scene? Wouldn't papparazzi have taken pics of that?

I don't care who she is, she looks like a $5.00 ho-bag just getting home from a night in the alley! Where did she get that dress, "Ho's For Less?"

In this case, if she left her license and then went home to call 911, that's legit. It's like pulling in to the nearest gas station instead of pulling over right away for an unmarked cop. You have to feel safe and if she was being swarmed, I can see why no charges are being pressed.



She was probably distracted by the rear view trying to shake a tail.
