'Pippi Longstocking' Busted in Triple Hit and Run Seems Tami Erin is not having the greatest time lately By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted Dec 15, 2013 3:26 PM CST 11 comments Comments Tami Erin (Wikimedia Commons) (Newser) – Things seem to have gone downhill for Tami Erin since she played Pippi Longstocking in the '80s: The actress was arrested yesterday for felony hit and run ... while allegedly driving drunk, TMZ reports. Erin is accused of hitting three cars in LA—in three separate incidents, not all at the same time—and leaving the scenes. A source says she was "totally out of control ... just out of it." At least one person had to go to the hospital, according to law enforcement sources. Erin last appeared on TMZ because her sex tape was being marketed with images of her as a 14-year-old Pippi.
