Estella Warren

ESCAPES Escape Charge

5/29/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Model, actress, escape artist Estella Warren will NOT be charged for slipping out of her handcuffs and attempting to flee when she was arrested for DUI Monday night thanks to a MAJOR technicality ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... officials will not go forward with the felony escape charge against Warren because she hadn't actually been booked into the system when she made a break for it ... therefore she technically didn't commit felony escape.

As TMZ first reported, Warren was arrested Monday night after she allegedly hit a few parked cars with her Prius, left the scene, got arrested for DUI, kicked a police officer, and then bolted from the police station.

Warren is still facing charges for assault, hit and run and DUI.

Why bother charging celebrities for any charges. It's a total waste of time. 2 sets of laws apply.

Pathetic, how the Cops are still treating Hollywood People like Babies. Would they do this for everyone?

Anyway then how about RESISTING ARREST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wasn't she trying to escape!

And Notice how the Police where very quiet about this very dangerous night, but they have a press conference for anything involving LOhan or Aguilera.

John is right. That's similar to what I was going to say. Celebrities get to live by different rules than the rest of us. Plus, she's able to pay for a really good lawyer. If we tried what she did, at best we'd get tazered and get a beatdown.

Good news for Canada. She and people like her is the future for their little country up north.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Their little country up north is bigger than the United States, (though their population and economic size is 1/10th that of the USA).

Canada: 3,854,082 square miles
United States: 3,717,727 square miles

Canada is an ally of the USA so what's your beef with Canada?

Meh    

It's not special treatment; it's paying for a good lawyer. If you weren't poor, you could do the same thing vs taking some hack free public defender. You get what you pay for. Here's a tip: Top 10 grads from top tier law schools generally aren't full-time public defenders. The last in the class from third tier toilets...yeah, they are.

LOL! It's got to be great to be white. If she were hispanic, asian or black, not only would she be charged with that crime, she would have worn an ass kicking once they caught her again, that is, if they hadn't just killed her and gotten everything over with on the spot. In the USA if you are white you are innocent unproven guilty. Any other color, you are GUILTY and may God help you if you are NOT PROVEN INNOCENT.

Well good thing i'm white and don't have to care because we get away everything. Must suck to be you thought, too bad so sad... whatever. It's not a real problem if it doesn't affect white people.
