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.
Adrienne said: "We've no regrets and would do the same again.
"My children have always been taught right from wrong. We were not being brave, it's what any right-thinking person would have done."
Police yesterday revealed half of the 240 London riot suspects who have appeared in court so far are under 18.
By 7am this morning, cops had arrested 1,051 in London while 591 had been charged. More than 1,600 have been arrested nationwide and 796 people have appeared in court charged in connection with the riots.
Chelsea, a talented athlete and singer, is among a group of Londoners picked to be ambassadors for the 2012 Olympics.
They are supposed to represent pride in our capital city and will officially welcome visitors.
Adrienne told of the horrifying moment she and Roger saw Chelsea flash on to their TV screens during Sunday night's appalling violence in Enfield, North London.
She said: "We were watching the riots. It was sickening. Then we saw her. To say we were shocked...
"Not only was it someone we knew, it was our daughter. She's studying A-levels, is a fine sportswoman and a great singer - a beautiful, creative and talented child.
"I love her. But look at what she's done. These riots have cost people their jobs and even lives. We are going through hell."

Awesome parents. Hopefully Chelsea will grow up and thank them some day.
If England is to be saved, it will be by folks like Adrienne and Roger Ives.
she should have been beaten, tazed and hospitalized....at the very least...
Don't be so sure.
The way she dresses in the photos and her smug pout speak volumes.
I’d hit it like a baseball bat at the Home Run Derby.
Don’t judge a book by its cover - its the way all young people dress these days. You have to give kudos to her parents and she should forfeit her Olympic ambassidorship and have to perform community service and pay a fine.
Don’t taze her, bro.
Isn’t Gary Coleman dead?
How long until she outs herself as a tranny?
What kind of stoopit parents name their kid after a suburb?
I’m mixed about this. It sounds like they tried to raise her right.
But calling the cops on your own daughter? That’s extreme.
