January Jones hits three cars, flees scene, calls Bobby Flay

Mad Men actress January Jones crashed her Range Rover into three parked cars last night, a collision she says was contributed to by paparazzi tailing her.

Oddly, Jones called celebrity chef Bobby Flay, who she had met once before last night, to accompany her at the scene of the crash. Flay, who commented today on the incident toTMZ, seemed bemused:

We spoke with Flay, who tells us he was watching the basketball game last night at The London West Hollywood Hotel with a group of people that included Jones. Flay says he saw her drink a beer but wasn’t really watching her alcohol intake. Flay says he had only met Jones once before, and last night she asked for his number because she wanted to redo her kitchen and give his number to her designer. Flay obliged, and says he doesn’t know why Jones chose to call him after the crash, but nonetheless he drove over to help her. He says he did not argue but just wanted to make sure she was ok.

Although Jones blamed pursuing paparazzi for “blinding” her prior to the crash, witnesses say that there were no photographers at the scene- a claim backed up by a lack of photos of the crash. What’s more, witnesses claim Jones smelled “like a brewery” and was clearly intoxicated at the time of the accident. Police reportedly did not administer field sobriety tests because the actress was absent from the scene for nearly an hour- TMZ claims that cops confirmed there is no way to charge someone who leaves the scene of suspected DUI with drinking and driving charges, as they could conceivably go home and have a drink in the interim.
