Lori Harvey has had a forgettable week that included a scary car accident, according to reports.

The step-daughter of media mogul Steve Harvey was reportedly arrested in suburban Los Angeles on Sunday when she flipped her car during an accident and then walked away.

According to E! and OK Weekly, Lori Harvey was arrested by the Beverly Hills Police Department after witnesses said she was texting and driving and accidentally hit a parked Prius and flipped her Mercedes G-Wagon onto its side.

Witnesses flagged down officers who pulled up on the scene and pointed to Harvey’s location as she was walking away, E! states it was told by the BHPD. She was cited for misdemeanor hit and run and delaying a police investigation.

Harvey was officially arrested on the site, according to E! and Us Weekly. However, the socialite was given a citation to appear in court and released instead of being officially handcuffed then stuffed into the back of the cruiser before being hauled to the Beverly Hills Police Department for booking and bail.

Just this past week, it was reported by rolling out that Harvey and Diddy stopped following each other on Instagram in the immediate aftermath of Diddy being spotted out hugged up on another woman in Beverly Hills. Harvey, at that same time, was on the opposite side of the continent attending the Howard University homecoming in Washington.

Harvey has not responded to repeated inquiries for comment about the accident nor her relationship status with Diddy.
