In the early morning hours of April 6, 2013, Warren and fellow actress Jaime Pressly were involved in an incident at the Hollywood nightclub Bootsy Bellows, when Pressly accused Warren of stealing a purse belonging to Pressly's assistant. The purse had gone missing from a house party attended by the three women. Using a "find my iPhone" app, Pressly and her assistant tracked the purse to the nightclub, where they found Warren. According to Pressly's account, Warren claimed the purse as her own, even though some items belonging to Pressly's assistant were found inside the purse. Drug paraphernalia was also found inside the purse, and the police were called. The investigation is ongoing.
