  • Lori Harvey, the 22-year-old stepdaughter of Steve Harvey, was arrested on Sunday night.

  • Just prior to the incident, Lori posted on Instagram Stories about her day hanging out in Malibu, California.

On Sunday night, Lori Harvey was arrested for a hit and run and delaying a police investigation.

According to the Beverly Hills Police Department via E! News, the 22-year-old hit a parked car, prompting a single vehicle accident on the 200 block of Moreno Drive in Los Angeles around 9:48 p.m. on Sunday night. Authorities told the publication that the model, who is Steve Harvey's stepdaughter, attempted to leave the scene but was apprehended nearby. No injuries have been reported at this time.

An eyewitness told OK! that Lori had been texting while driving and ended up flipping her car. Police confirmed to the outlet that they don't believe she was intoxicated at the time but that she did, indeed, roll her vehicle at some point.

"She was arrested for the two charges and released on scene," police said to OK!. "Not booked. She identified herself properly and signed a written promise to appear in court.”

Prior to the accident and arrest, Lori shared several Instagram Stories on Sunday that showed her spending time in Malibu, California and dining at Nobu with fellow model Amaya Colonn.

Since the incident, Lori has remained silent on social media, as has Lori's mother, Marjorie Harvey, and her stepdad, Steve (aside from his usual inspirational quotes on Twitter).

Lori has been in the news lately for her alleged on-and-off relationship with 49-year-old rapper Sean "Diddy" Combs. Throughout the summer, the two were spotted hanging out in New York City, Nerano, Italy, and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Despite these outings, neither Diddy nor Lori have confirmed a relationship.

Earlier this month, Lori appeared at her parents' Sand and Soul Festival in Cancún, Mexico, where Marjorie celebrated her 55th birthday in style. Most recently, Lori has traveled to Howard University for the school's homecoming celebration.
