LiLo’s mom pleads guilty

Dina Lohan has pleaded guilty to Driving While Intoxicated.

The 50-year-old mother of troubled actress Lindsay Lohan was arrested for drunk driving in September 2013 in Long Island, NY. Dina's blood alcohol level registered at .20, more than twice the state's legal limit of .08.

Dina must reportedly complete 100 hours of community service and attend mandatory programs on drinking and driving, as well as special seminars, and pay any outstanding fines, reports TMZ.

Dina's driving license is expected to be revoked and she will have a special interlock device installed in her car.

This incident is the latest controversy amongst the Lohan family. Dina has been at odds with ex-husband Michael Lohan for years and the two do not shy away from making their business public. Accusations of drug use, child support issues and abuse have dominated headlines with the once-happy couple.

However, Dina is not the only member of the Lohan family with a drinking problem.

Lindsay has been in rehab multiple times and has admitted her problems mostly stem from alcohol. Since leaving a court-ordered program last year she was been followed by cameras for a reality show on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network, and during one episode she admitted slipping after her release.

"I had a glass of wine, and that was it. But it was that I just had so much guilt, and it's OK to admit it, it's really scary. It took me a bit to finally be like, why am I holding this in?" Lindsay said.
