Lindsay Lohan, the Mean Girls actress who has multiple trips to rehab under her belt at the age of 27, is struggling to regain her footing after completing her most recent 3-month stint in rehab. While Lindsay begins to make more sober appearances — she recently supported her younger model sis at New York Fashion Week — her 50-year-old mom has taken over the wild child reins.
Dina Lohan, mother of four, was arrested and charged with a DWI late last night in New York when she was caught doing “77 mph in a 55 mph zone,” notes ABC news, according to a police press release. Dina took a breathalyzer test, which revealed that her blood alcohol concentration was .2 percent, which is more than double the legal limit of .08 percent.
Dina was taken to a nearby police station to be processed and emergency personnel examined her after she reported to police that she had sustained an injury while being arrested. She later retracted her allegation when she was cleared of any injuries.
She was later released to a “sober third party” and is due to appear in court in late September.
Children learn by example, no? So Dina’s reckless driving is exactly what Lindsay doesn’t need as she makes her way back into the limelight to clear her name and begin to rebuild her character and career. Fox News has already been quick to jump on the obvious headline of “Like Mother, Like Daughter,” and we feel for Lindsay.
Don’t worry, LeLo, we’ve been with you since your Parent Trap days, and we’ll be with you through thick and thin to the end. Hang in there, and just to be safe, look into hiring a chauffeur for a while.
