Dina Lohan Arrested for Drunk Driving in NY
The apple doesn’t fall far from the Lohan!
No sooner than child star trainwreck Lindsay wraps up her sixth stint in court-ordered rehab, her mother “enabler” mother Dina is facing a legal battle of her own. The elder Lohan, 50, was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated after being pulled over by New York State Police at approximately 11 p.m. on Thursday.
Cops first became suspicious when they spied Dina’s white BMW traveling westbound on the Northern State Parkway going more than 20 mph over the 55 mph speed limit. According to a police spokesperson:
“The operator of the vehicle, 50 year old Dina Lohan of Merrick, NY was found to be intoxicated. She was arrested on a charge of DWI and Aggravated DWI after a breath test revealed her blood alcohol concentration (BAC) to be .20 per cent, more than twice the legal limit.”
Dina claims she was injured during the course of the arrest and State Police called an ambulance to have her evaluated.
“When emergency personnel arrived and evaluated Lohan, there were no injuries and she recanted her claim.”
The mother of four was issued traffic tickets for the two DWI offenses and speeding and ultimately released to a sober third party. She is scheduled to appear in Nassau County 1st District Court on Sept. 24.
Interestingly enough, since facing her own battle with addiction Lindsay has reportedly been “begging” her mother to seek help for her alleged alcoholism.
“Lindsay has been worried sick about Dina lately. She knows Dina has been out drinking and she sees how much her own treatment helped her, so she has been begging her mother to go and get help.”
