Lindsay's mom arrested for drunk driving

16 September 2013, 11:03

New York - Lindsay Lohan's mother is facing a drunken driving charge in New York state following a traffic stop.

State police say Dina Lohan was stopped on a highway on Thursday night for speeding about 40km east of New York City.

Police had a blood alcohol concentration at more than twice the legal limit in New York.

Lohan, 50, was booked, issued tickets and then released. She's due in court on 24 September.

Her lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, issued a statement on Friday saying Lohan "appreciates the grave seriousness" of the situation.

But he says that since she has no prior record, Lohan would likely be treated "with even-handed fairness" by the courts.

Police called an ambulance and had medics examine Lohan after she complained that she'd been hurt during the arrest. No injuries were found and Lohan subsequently recanted the claim, police said.
