Tami Erin — the actress who played Pippi Longstocking — was arrested Saturday afternoon for felony hit and run and drunk driving … TMZ has learned.
Erin was driving in L.A. when she allegedly hit 3 cars and took off. Law enforcement sources say at least one person was taken to the hospital.
And get this … Erin didn’t hit them all at once — we’re told she hit the first car then drove off … then hit another car and drove off … and then she hit the last.
When cops found her they did a field sobriety test and then arrested her for both the felony hit and run and DUI. One source says she was “totally out of control … just out of it.”
Erin refused to submit a blood alcohol test … and her bail was set at $100K.
As TMZ first reported … Erin’s latest screen credit is a gnarly sex tape.
