A 25-year-old adult-magazine model is facing multiple charges after injuring seven people, including two police officers, while driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, the police say.
Jakarta Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Rikwanto said that Novi Amalia, who was only wearing underwear and refused to follow the police orders to get dressed after the rampage, was driving a red Honda Jazz car recklessly on Jl. Sukarjo Wiryopranoto in Central Jakarta when she hit a cyclist and a street food vendor at 5.30 pm, last Thursday.

"She went on and hit two police officers identified as Adj. First Insp. Sugianto and Chief Brig. Yanto in Taman Sari, Central Jakarta," Rikwanto said. Media reports said that Sugianto tried to stop Novi's car after she hit a number of street vendors, but the car went on and hit him.
Rikwanto said that Novi continued to flee along Jl. Gajah Mada in Central Jakarta and hit a public minivan injuring the driver.
The reckless driving continued when she went on and hit a motorcyclist and another public minivan, Rikwanto added.
He said that all victims suffered minor injuries and were being treated at Husada Hospital in Central Jakarta.
"Novi has undertaken a urine test, and the results are positive for methamphetamine," Rikwanto said.
"She admitted to taking ecstasy and drank Chivas [a whisky brand] at her apartment in Penjaringan, North Jakarta, before driving the car," he added.
According to Rikwanto, the police have not yet charged the driver, who the spokesman said was in an unstable physical and mental condition and would have to undergo a psychological examination at the National Police Hospital in Kramat Jati, East Jakarta, beforehand.
"We cannot prepare a questioning dossier [BAP] yet, because she did not communicate properly when being questioned," he added.
The police said Novi would likely be charged with reckless driving and drug possession. If found guilty, the model could face up to 16 years imprisonment.
Rikwanto said that based on testimony from witnesses, Novi was on her way to Ancol in North Jakarta when she started to take off her clothes and threw them out of the car.
Novi was only wearing underwear when arrested, Rikwanto said. "She allegedly threw her wallet and cell phone out of the car as well while driving," he added.
"We could revoke her driver's license because a reckless driver shouldn't have a legal driver's license," he said.
Urban activists have voiced concerns over the increasing dangers of walking on Jakarta's sidewalks following a series of car accidents involving drunk drivers.
Last month, the Central Jakarta District Court sentenced a drunk driver, Afriyani - who ran over 13 pedestrians killing nine of them - to 15 years in prison.
Afriyani was under the influence of drugs and alcohol as she drove at high speed in Gambir, Central Jakarta, in January this year.
In September, the Jakarta Police arrested Jakarta resident, Ronald Utomo, 30, for driving under the influence of alcohol and hitting six motorcyclists on Jl. Gajah Mada in Central Jakarta.
