Arrested ... Chelsea Ives was 'spotted on TV'
A TEENAGE girl accused of wrecking a police car in the riots is a London Olympics ambassador.
Chelsea Ives, 18, was arrested after her parents allegedly saw her on TV during the mayhem in Enfield and called police.
Mum Adrienne, 43, said: "I have no regrets. I love my daughter but she was brought up to know right from wrong."
Chelsea is said to have hurled a rock through a shop window while rioting - then yelled excitedly to a friend: "This is the best day ever."
She was behind bars last night after parents Adrienne and Roger turned her in when they allegedly saw her on TV attacking a police car.

Horror on TV ... mum Adrienne
She denied violent disorder, burglary at Phones 4U and Vodafone stores and causing £5,000 of damage to a police car.
Prosecutor Becky Owens claimed Chelsea had shouted to a friend: "This is the best day ever!" - then hurled a rock at a shop window.
She was among a mob of about a dozen that attacked the squad car, the court was told.
Chelsea is said to have thrown a brick and plastic roadworks barriers at the vehicle.
She was allegedly pictured in a bright pink cardigan beside two hooded youths, one of whom was waving a chunk of wood at the car's shattered windscreen.
When the Tottenham riots started, Chelsea posted on Facebook saying the police were to blame - and it was the shopkeepers' fault if they were looted.
Chelsea, who has a brother of 16, was chosen two years ago to represent a local soccer-based charity for youngsters with communication skills.
