Lohan's Mom Arrested on Drunken Driving Charge


Lindsay Lohan's mother is facing a drunken driving charge in New York state following a traffic stop.

State police say Dina Lohan was stopped on a highway Thursday night for speeding about 25 miles (40 kilometers) east of New York City.

Police had a blood alcohol concentration at more than twice the legal limit in New York.

Lohan, 50, was booked, issued tickets and then released. She's due in court Sept. 24.

Her lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, issued a statement Friday saying Lohan "appreciates the grave seriousness" of the situation.

But he says that since she has no prior record, Lohan would likely be treated "with even-handed fairness" by the courts.

Police called an ambulance and had medics examine Lohan after she complained that she'd been hurt during the arrest. No injuries were found and Lohan subsequently recanted the claim, police said.

Who are these people that they command such attention by the media. Why waste press time presenting us with their antics. I am sure there are more deserving stories good & bad that we do not need to be bored by the Lohans.
