California cops took samples of Anne Heche’s blood because they believe she may have been intoxicated during her near-deadly high-speed car crash, according to a report Monday.

The LAPD had already confirmed to The Post on Sunday that the investigation “absolutely” would be looking into whether the troubled actress was under the influence during Friday’s fiery crash.

Sources told TMZ Monday that officers successfully got a warrant to draw blood from the 53-year-old actress, who remains hospitalized after suffering severe burns in the crash that destroyed a house in Mar Vista.

The report did not detail exactly when the warrant was obtained or the blood test taken. However, it said that the results could take several weeks to come through.

The outlet said that — at the very least — the LAPD plans to refer the case for possible hit-and-run charges. The LAPD confirmed to The Post early Monday that it is investigating a possible “misdemeanor hit and run” by Heche from before the fiery crash.

TMZ had earlier shared video of her crashing into a garage door, driving off with tires screeching when an onlooker told her to get out of the car.

Images at the scene also appeared to show the red cap of a bottle of booze in the car at the time, TMZ said.

Hours earlier, the actress had posted an alarming podcast in which she said she’d been downing vodka and wine after being “rocked” by a “very bad day.” A rep later insisted to TMZ, however, that the since-deleted episode was recorded Monday, four days before the crash.

After driving away from the garage crash, Heche was seemingly caught in several videos racing her blue Mini Clubman at terrifying high speeds before crashing into a house, sparking a huge blaze that took nearly 60 firefighters more than an hour to tackle.

The woman living in the house, Lynne Mishele, “was extremely fortunate” to survive, a neighbor said — while Heche herself is also “lucky to be alive,” a source close to her told CNN.

“She has severe burns and has a long recovery ahead,” the source said.
“Her team and her family are still trying to process what led up to the crash.”
