Lindsay Lohan ARRESTED

By  | 

As an update to the reports out yesterday about Lindsay Lohan's car crash and suspected DUI, Lindsay Lohan has been arrested!

Preliminary reports had indicated that Lindsay Lohan was let go to receive medical attention, but reports now confirm that she was indeed arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence – and investigators have found cocaine in the car! Lindsay Lohan was confronted by police at the hospital early Saturday morning, where she was then arrested, but had to be released so she could stay longer in the hospital.

The crash appears to have been the result of speeding – the suspicion is now that drugs and alcohol played a part.

Officers at the scene found a "usable amount" of a drug tentatively identified as cocaine, McCann said. He declined to say where the drug was found other than to say Lohan was not carrying it…

McCann declined to comment on Lohan's blood-alcohol level. He said the case will be presented to the District Attorney's Office where the actress could face more charges, including felonies. Her tentative arraignment date is Aug. 24. [Source]

  • Svedka vodka, who had signed on to sponsor Lindsay Lohan's 21st birthday, have pulled out of the event [TMZ]
  • Lindsay Lohan's father again goes to the media to plead for his daughter's attention (don't we love it when her parents take the spotlight during crises?) – Michael Lohan, who claims to now speak with Lindsay on the phone, has turned to the media to deliver his personal message to her not to follow his footsteps: "But I hope and pray my daughter learns from my mistakes. I don't want her to end up where I did." [Entertainmentwise]
  • Lindsay Lohan got into a fight prior to the accident. "We're hearing that Lindsay was partying at Koi restauranteur Nick Hawk's party house (where he hosts late-night after-parties) last night and that a fight broke out there — between who, we're not sure. We hear that Lindsay left Hawk's Mt. Olympus (Hollywood Hills) house in a huff and her bodyguard Jaz was left to clean up the mess inside as Lindsay waited in the car.

    Then at 5 am, DJ Samantha Ronson left Lindsay's place, walking up Doheny to Sunset and Lindsay went after her. Lindsay caught up with Samantha as she was in the median of the four-lane Sunset Blvd. and she tried to talk to Sam — they were screaming, obviously arguing, and Lindsay was heard by our photographer saying, "You f*cking lesbian bitch.""
