The source later saw Cohen, who was by herself around 1AM, at the Beach Bar in Seaside, located on the same street where she was hit. "I didn't know who she was at first," the source said, adding that she appeared drunk. "She was on the dance floor dancing and singing by herself. It was pretty weird. Then she came over to us and asked if we watched American Idol. She said she was the one who was paid to flip off the judges."

Sometime after leaving the bar, Cohen was struck and killed while crossing the street.
