Lindsay Lohan’s DUI Feature Story

Lindsay Lohan’s DUI Lindsay Lohan’s DUI 27-May-2007 Written by: Jackson Reeves Lindsay Lohan charged with DUI after police find cocaine in her crashed car. Lindsay Lohan, whose movie Georgia Rule premiered May 11, crashed her 2005 Mercedes SL-65 on a curb on Sunset Boulevard, in Beverly Hills, CA at 5:30 a.m. on May 26. Police investigators found what appeared to be cocaine at the scene of the accident. Lt. Mitch McCann stated that Lohan was not in immediate possession of the illegal drug, and that Lohan was released to hospital custody for treatment of minor injuries from the crash. However, police still charged Lohan with the misdemeanor of driving under the influence, since the crash seemed to have resulted from speeding, possibly caused by a cocaine-induced, hyperactive state. The 20-year-old actress and pop singer will need to appear in court to answer the DUI citation, as reported by the website X17 Inc. Earlier this year, Morgan Creek Productions CEO James G. Robinson admonished Lohan, in a now well-publicized memo, for “discourteous, irresponsible, and unprofessional” conduct – probably resulting from the same source as her DUI: her notorious partying lifestyle – during filming of Georgia Rule. Lohan admitted to dabbling with drugs after achieving star status with 2004’s Mean Girls, but she denied ever using cocaine, Vanity Fair reported in its January 2006 issue. The Catholic-raised Lohan cited her estranged father, Michael Lohan’s abuse of cocaine and resultant jail time as her prime reason for her anti-cocaine resolve. However, after exiting rehab for alcohol abuse in early May, Lohan returned to drinking, and grainy pictures surfaced soon-thereafter (and later…a movie version that currently circulates the web!), depicting Lohan snorting a line of cocaine off of a toilet in Teddy’s nightclub in L.A., reported the News of the World. On the day before her car accident, Lohan stated that she was growing more mature and that her notorious partying lifestyle, which aligned her with the likes of Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, was just a character-type that she is dramaturgically trying on for size. She said, “I’m just a girl, but I’m growing up; I’m learning,” as support for her developing maturity and an insistence that she had changed, reported Unfortunately, Lohan makes no signs of slowing down in spite of her DUI, with regards at least to alcohol. She has already publicly proclaimed that she will spend her 21st birthday – the first time that she will legally be allowed to drink alcohol – drinking vodka at her Svedka sponsored bash on July 2, as reported by Us Weekly.
