Former child star Tami Erin, well-known for playing “Pippi Longstocking” in the 80’s, was recently arrested in Los Angeles after causing a string of car crashes while intoxicated.

According to reports, Tami was arrested on December 14 after crashing into three cars in three separate locations. Erin, 39, was caught by police after trying to flee the crash sites.
