Mother of actress Lindsay Lohan to serve 18 days in jail after pleading guilty to drunk driving

Dina Lohan, mother of famed actress Lindsay Lohan will be spending 18 days in jail after pleading guilty to a drunk driving charge on Tuesday September 28.

 

The former “Celebrity Big Brother” star pleaded guilty to one charge of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, as well as leaving the scene of an accident from an incident in Merrick, New York, in January 2020.

 

Dina was reportedly driving outside an Outback Steakhouse, when she allegedly struck another vehicle and left the scene. She was followed home by the driver of the other vehicle and when officers arrived the scene, she reportedly refused to submit to a blood-alcohol test. 

 

The felony complaint also claimed 59-year-old Dina had booze on her breath, bloodshot eyes and slurred speech when she was busted. Upon getting out of her vehicle, Dina was also “unsteady on her feet and fell to the ground on her face.” She was arrested for felony DWI because she had a prior incident.

 

Nassau County District Attorney’s Office told Page Six that Dina who will also be under a five year probation, will be officially sentenced on December 3. Dina’s attorney, Mark Jay Heller who confirmed the development said; 

 

“She’s very pleased to bring closure to this unfortunate situation.”

 

Dina who had earlier pleaded not guilty to the charges, was previously arrested in 2013 for driving 77 miles per hour with a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit. She pleaded guilty to a charge of driving while intoxicated and was ordered to complete 100 hours of community service.
