Alleged driver who intentionally smashed into parked car at Hollywood taco truck turns herself in

HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The alleged driver who was captured on video ramming into a parked car at a Hollywood taco stand has turned herself into authorities.

Amber Rose Darbinyan turned herself into the Los Angeles Police Department Hollywood station on Thursday. She was awaiting bail.

Video captured on the night of Aug. 24 by bystanders shows a woman knocking a plate of food out of another person's hand. She then gets into a Mercedes and starts violently backing into a parked car, over and over, near the corner of Western and Lexington avenues.

New video released on Wednesday shows the driver of the Mercedes having some type of argument with a group of people as they crowd around her.

Jose Romero, the attorney representing the alleged driver, Amber Darbinyan, says people outside of the taco truck targeted his client because of her social media personality.

The alleged driver who was captured on video ramming into a parked car at a Hollywood taco stand has turned herself into authorities.


"She has had a history of public interaction with people attacking her verbally just because they think that she is that person on TV or on the internet being the quote unquote bad girl," Romero said.

No charges have been filed in the case but Darbinyan's attorney does think she may face a vandalism or battery charge. Darbinyan is expected to remain in jail until at least next Tuesday. She has a no-bail warrant out of San Bernardino regarding a case in which she was involved in a pursuit with authorities in 2018, according to officials.
