Whilst Lindsay is busy trying to remain sober, her mother is busy getting wrecked and driving around New York whilst still drunk
Dina Lohan was taken in by cops late on Thursday (12 Sept.) night after they pulled her over for speeding on the Northern State Parkway going through Long Island, NY. According to TMZ, Momma Lohan was going at 77 in a 55 mph zone and was pulled over by a New York State Police cruiser at around 11 pm on Thursday night.
Dina was more than twice over the legal limit
Upon closer inspection, the arresting officer noticed a distinct smell of booze coming from the white BMW and requested that Dina get out of the vehicle almost immediately as she clearly looked intoxicated. The officer then tested her blood-alcohol levels and found that it was at a staggering .20, more than twice the legal limit of .08.
Whilst still at the scene, Dina allegedly complained that she was injured by the officer who took her in, however after she was checked by paramedics, who found no damage on her, she retracted her statement. She was then taken down to the local station where she posed for a very drunk mug shoot, and was eventually picked up from the station by an unknown, sober third party. In case you were wondering, it wasn't Lindsay. Dina is due back in court to hear her charges later this month.
Her arrest caps off what has apparently been a booze-soaked summer for Dina, who was spotted at a Labor Day party in New York last week where onlookers say she seemed exceptionally drunk. We'll keep you updated on this story as it develops.
Once again, Dina hasn't set a good example for her daughter
For once it is Lindsay who is leading by example
