General Hospitals star Haley Pullos “arrested for drunk driving” after “hitting her car into oncoming traffic on the Los Angeles freeway.”
ACTRESS Haley Pullos has been arrested for drunk driving after allegedly causing a serious car crash in LA last month.
The 24-year-old is best known for her role as Molly Lansing-Davis on the daytime soap opera General Hospital.
Haley was arrested for drunk driving after she allegedly caused a horrific car crash on a Los Angeles freeway on April 29 TMZ.
In documents obtained by the newspaper, police say the soap opera star was traveling on a Pasadena freeway when she “swerved, went over the guardrail and into oncoming traffic.”
The TV star then collided head-on with another vehicle traveling in the opposite direction at about 60 mph.
Photos from the incident show both cars were damaged beyond repair, with shattered windshields and smashed engines.
After police arrived at the scene of the accident, they claimed that Haley was unable to exit her vehicle due to the extreme damage.
The firefighters were eventually able to get her out of the car and helped her into an ambulance.
But according to authorities, when a firefighter was examining her injuries, the actress “slapped” him, screaming, “That’s a freaking $400 shirt!”
When her car was later searched by police, cannabis edibles and miniature bottles of tequila were allegedly seized.

Haley was taken to hospital, where police said she showed “clear signs” that she was driving under the influence, including slurred speech, watery eyes and the smell of alcohol on her breath.
The TV personality then reportedly became aggressive and “fought” the hospital staff, which calmed her down.
Shortly thereafter, she was arrested for drunk driving while still in her care.
The driver of the other vehicle reportedly survived the accident but was taken to hospital with serious injuries.
Police told TMZ that Haley was also involved in a hit-and-run collision prior to her serious freeway crash, but no further details were released at the time.
Last week, the young star explained Soap Opera Digest that she would be taking a break from General Hospital while she recovered from “a car accident.”
She told the outlet: “Unfortunately, I was involved in a car accident and I’m fine, but I will need some time to recover. I’ll be back as soon as possible!”
