Los Angeles prosecutors have charged Canadian model and actress Estella Warren with four misdemeanors, including hit and run, stemming from a recent arrest.

The Planet of the Apes actress is also facing counts of drunken driving, resisting arrest and battery on a peace officer. She is due in court on June 17 for arraignment.

City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan says Warren refused a breathalyzer test when she was arrested early May 24  after crashing into three parked cars and then tussling with police.

Mateljan says the 32-year-old also was convicted of driving under the influence in 2007.

An email to Warren's manager was not immediately returned.

She starred opposite Mark Wahlberg in Tim Burton's 2001 version of Planet of the Apes.

Warren was born in Peterborough, Ont. She later moved to Toronto to train with the national synchronized swimming team and became a three-time Canadian national champion.
