Lindsay Lohan's mother was pulled over after allegedly driving 77 mph in a 55 mph zone
It never seems to end with the Lohans.
Dina, 50, was pulled over by state Troopers in Long Island, N.Y., for allegedly going 77 mph in a 55 mph zone at 11 p.m. on Thursday, then was found to have a blood-alcohol level of 0.2 percent, more than double the legal limit of 0.08 percent,
Lohan’s lawyer later released a statement to Entertainment Tonight that includes a pun on one of her daughter’s biggest movies:
“Dina Lohan is a good person. Her life has been dedicated to her four children. She has worked hard her entire life and she has been a ‘Parent Trapped’ with the entire world watching her in a fishbowl with murky water due to no fault of her own.
“She appreciates the grave seriousness of this matter and is mindful that the Nassau County District Attorney considers these types of cases a top priority. But as an attorney with 45 years of experience, I am confident that as a first time offender, with absolutely no prior record, that the Judicial System will treat Dina Lohan with even-handed fairness.”
She was arrested on charges of speeding and driving while intoxicated, then at the police station “made an allegation that she was injured during the course of the arrest,” according to a New York State Police statement.
“State Police called an ambulance to have Lohan evaluated,” the police statement says. “When emergency personnel arrived and evaluated Lohan, there were no injuries and she recanted her claim.”
She was issued citations. An arraignment was set for Sept. 24.
