Was it two cars or four? Wait, now it's three. And was that alcohol on her breath? Did she really flee the scene, or was she merely doing the responsible thing and returning home to phone the police?
And what about Bobby Flay? What in God's good name was he doing there?
Here's the latest from TMZ:
As we first reported Jones was driving home last night when her car struck 3 parked vehicles. She left her license with a witness, walked a short distance to her home, called 911 and eventually returned to the scene. Jones told cops paparazzi were following her and that's why she crashed. Cops did not administer a field sobriety test -- we were told because there was no evidence of alcohol.
But now we're getting a more involved story. A woman who owns one of the cars that was hit tells TMZ ... she heard the crash, looked over her balcony and saw Jones. She says around 10 minutes after the crash, Food Network star Bobby Flay showed up in a separate car, began talking with her and telling her to leave the scene, which she did.
We spoke with Flay, who tells us he was watching the basketball game last night at The London West Hollywood Hotel with a group of people that included Jones. Flay says he saw her drink a beer but wasn't really watching her alcohol intake. Flay says he had only met Jones once before, and last night she asked for his number because she wanted to redo her kitchen and give his number to her designer. Flay obliged, and says he doesn't know why Jones chose to call him after the crash, but nonetheless he drove over to help her. He says he did not argue but just wanted to make sure she was ok.

Who cares about the hit-and-run, the more pressing question is this: Why is Bobby Flay January Jones' go-to man during her damsel-in-distress moment? And of lesser importance, since when was he into home redesign? Seems like a front, doesn't it?
After all Bobby Flay is a supposedly happily married man of five years. But then again, maybe it's all true what he says, that he doesn't know why she chose to call him. That they had only met twice. If you were his wife, would you believe it?
