So, how was your weekend? Did you have fun getting ready for Memorial day? Maybe you went to a movie, or had a barbecue. If you were Lindsay Lohan, on the other hand, you did some cocaine, took a drive, crashed your car into a tree, fled the scene, then got booked by the cops on suspicion of DUI. So, you know, just another Friday night. Here are the details according to People.
Lindsay Lohan was arrested and cited for driving under the influence in Los Angeles in the wee hours of Saturday morning, say police, who also found a substance tentatively identified as "a usable amount of cocaine" in connection with the accident.
The 20-year-old actress was slightly injured when her 2005 Mercedes SL-65 convertible struck a curb and shrub on Sunset Boulevard. The car suffered "major damage," according to police.
Lohan and two other people were in the vehicle when it crashed around 5:30 a.m., Lt. Mitch McCann, media relations officer for Beverly Hills police department, said during a press conference Saturday. The star was hospitalized for minor upper chest injuries. The passengers were not hurt.
At the press conference McCann said: "A usable amount of an illegal narcotic tentatively identified as cocaine was recovered and booked." Police would not specify where the drugs were found.
"She was charged with a misdemeanor," said McCann. "There is a potential for additional charges."
Of course, none of this is really surprising, other than perhaps the fact that Lindsay once again made it out alive. I don't know what the running count is, but I think we're coming up on number nine pretty fast. Someone better tell Anna Nicole not to eat all the donuts.
