LiLo mom arrested for DUI
Lindsay Lohan’s mother Dina was pulled over and taken into police custody for drunk driving.
The 50-year-old mother of Lindsay Lohan was allegedly twice the legal limit when behind the wheel in Long Island, New York on Thursday night.
Police pulled her over in her white BMW on the Northern State Parkway at around 11 pm Thursday night because she was allegedly moving at 77mph in an area which has a limit of 55mph.
Law enforcement are said to have tested her blood alcohol level and it registered at .20 which is more than double the legal limit of .08.
"Lohan made an allegation that she was injured during the course of the arrest," officials told TMZ.
However the matriarch "recanted her claim" when medical experts responded to the scene and decided she was OK.
Dina was eventually booked at a nearby station on two counts of driving while intoxicated and one count of speeding.
A sober person is believed to have collected her from the station and it reportedly was not her eldest daughter Lindsay.
TMZ writes that the 27-year-old troubled star did not learn about the incident until the story broke online the following morning.
Dina is expected back in court to explain herself later this month.
She has been blamed by a number of sources for being a bad influence on her daughter as she battles her own addictions.
TMZ found a photograph of her seemingly drunk while celebrating America’s Labor Day weekend recently.
Eyewitnesses told the publication she was “slurring her speech and zoning out” that night.
Dina, who split from Michael Lohan in 2007, is also mother to Lindsay’s younger sister Ali as well as brothers Cody and Michael Jr.
