Mum of troubled actress charged for drink-driving


Lindsay Lohan’s mum has been ordered to perform 100 hours of community service for a drink-driving charge.

Dina Lohan pleaded guilty in New York to the charge of driving while under the influence of alcohol.

During her court appearance yesterday, the star’s mum also pleaded guilty to speeding.

Police said 50-year-old Dina was driving 77mph in a 55mph zone when she was arrested on September 12th in Oyster Bay.

They said her blood alcohol level was more than double the legal limit.

The mum of the troubled actress is expected to be sentenced on June 3rd to a conditional discharge and 100 hours of community service.

Dina’s lawyer Mark Heller blamed the paparazzi for the incident.

He said, “It is the professional opinion, as stated here by the evaluator, that the circumstances leading to Dina’s arrest were largely impacted by ongoing daily stresses caused by you folks, the paparazzi, media attention and distorted tabloid character profiles.”

27-year-old Lindsay had reportedly predicted in the past that her mum would be arrested for a drink-driving offence.
