Dina Lohan Pleads Not Guilty of DWI
When you’re the go-to attorney for a family with legal needs like the Lohan clan’s, the least you can do is chauffeur your client away from her DWI arraignment in your own silver Rolls Royce.
After being stripped of her driver’s license and released without bail, Dina Lohan was led out of a Long Island courtroom and into the world-class wheels by her lawyer, Mark Heller. Lohan pleaded not guilty to speeding and drunken driving charges.
“Dina Lohan is painfully mindful of the gravity of her arrest for driving while intoxicated,” Heller told the Associated Press. “I am confident that the district attorney’s office and the judicial system will temper justice with mercy.”
Dina’s daughter, the oft-troubled Lindsay Lohan, was not in attendance for her mother’s court appearance. Dina was accompanied only by Heller and her mother, Ann Sullivan.
She’s due back in court Oct. 23.
One, Two, Maybe Three
Lohan was pulled over by police on Sept. 12 after allegedly driving 77 mph in a 55 mph zone in Long Island. When an officer asked if she had been drinking, Lohan copped to enjoying a glass of wine at a friend’s house.
Upon further questioning, the estimate changed to “two, well maybe three glasses” of pinot grigio, according to police reports.
Officers instructed Lohan in the “one leg test” to assess her driving impairment, but after standing on one leg for about five seconds, she put her leg down and asked officers if she was done.
Police say Lohan’s blood-alcohol content was .20, two-and-a-half times the legal limit of .08.
I Think That Hurt, Maybe
There was a bit of confusion over whether Lohan was injured due to being “roughed up” by the arresting officers, as she alleged after arriving at a police station. Lohan complained of a headache from having bumped her head and wrist pain after an officer closed her handcuffs too tightly.
But after some time, Lohan changed her mind, dismissing EMTs and telling them, “I don’t need you guys anymore, I don’t want any medical attention.”
She even decided the handcuffs weren’t so bad, after all, telling police, “Initially he handcuffed me pretty tight, but that’s ok. It was protocol.”
According to police reports, Lohan mentioned that Oprah interviewed her at her house three days earlier. She also told officers, “I’m not crazy. These questions are stupid.”
