January's Crash Involved Alcohol, Bobby Flay; Jodie Denies Attacking Teen "Paparazzo"S

  • January Jones claims she crashed into three parked cars last night because paparazzi were chasing her, but witnesses say she was alone — and smelled of alcohol. Also, in a bizarre twist, January called Bobby Flay to the scene.
  • January had only met Bobby earlier that night while watching a basketball game at a hotel with a group of friends, but she decided to call him after the crash. Bobby confirms that he was at the scene and says he saw her drink a beer at the party but wasn't watching her closely. An owner of one of the cars says Bobby told January to leave the scene. When she returned 45 minutes later, she asked officers if they were going to give her a sobriety test, but they said there was no way to know if she'd be driving drunk since she had left the scene.
