Lohan arrested for drunken driving

  

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) –

Lindsay Lohan was arrested in the Los Angeles area early on Tuesday on suspicion of drunken driving and cocaine possession, just days after she completed a 45-day rehabilitation program, authorities said.

The 21-year-old star of “Mean Girls” — already facing a drunken-driving charge following a car crash in Beverly Hills two months ago — was pulled over in the coastal city of Santa Monica shortly after midnight.

Police said they had received a report of a car chase and that Lohan and two companions were in the pursuing vehicle. A police spokesman said he believed the people in the two cars knew each other.

Lohan was taken into custody after failing a field sobriety test. Police said she registered a blood-alcohol level of about 0.12, well above the California limit of 0.08.

Lohan was booked on suspicion of drunken driving, possession of cocaine, bringing a controlled substance into custody and driving on a suspended license.

She was released after posting a $25,000 bond, a police spokesman said.

Just last Friday, Lohan turned herself in to Beverly Hills police to face charges of drunken driving in connection with a May 26 car crash.

In that case, she lost control of her Mercedes-Benz sports car and drove into a hedge. She then left the scene. Police said at the time they also found a small amount of what they believed to be cocaine in the car.

The incident followed months of hard partying by the actress, who had been a regular at Hollywood nightspots and attending Alcoholics Anonymous programs for a year despite having turned 21 — the legal age for drinking in the United States — only this month.

Immediately after the crash in May, Lohan checked herself into a Malibu rehab center for the second time in a year. She left earlier this month and now wears an alcohol monitoring bracelet on a voluntary basis, her spokeswoman said.

Now that you have heared the story I can tell you why i am posting this article in my blog.

There were alot of very nast comments left under this  article in my Yahoo account and it really upset me. Not becuase lindsey is famouse or becuase she and i are nearly the same age but because she is  human and that people tend to forget that they pull the same shit.  I am 19 years old and can proudly say I have never done drugs and I  have never gotten behind the wheel while being intoxicated but I know a lot of people who have done both at the same time and they  are my age if not a year or two younger.  Lindsey should be repremanded for her behavior as should any person famous or not should be but it does not give the public the right to wish she would get in car accident and die or become homeless.
