Estella Warren is facing four misdemeanor charges for her May 23 arrest. The former Victoria's Secret model has been charged with DUI, hit-and-run, battery on a police officer and resisting arrest. The Los Angeles City Attorney's Office filed the charges on Thursday, June 9, more than a week after it was unraveled that she won't be charged with felony escape because of technicality.

The "Planet of the Apes" actress is scheduled for arraignment for the four misdemeanors on June 17, but she is not required to attend the hearing. If she is convicted on all charges, the 32-year-old faces up to two and a half years in jail.

Estella got herself in a trouble with the law on late May 23. She was arrested under suspicion of DUI after allegedly hitting three parked cars and driving away. When the police got to her, she resisted arrest and even kicked an officer. During the booking process in a police station, she managed to get out of her handcuffs and escape through a back door, but police was quick to recapture her.

The model, who has also appeared on "Kangaroo Jack" and "The Cooler", was released on May 24 with a $100,000 bail. Nearly a week later, it was reported that police won't pursue felony escape charge against her because she had not yet been booked at the time she slipped out of her handcuffs and attempted to flee a Los Angeles police station.
