In a statement issued after the DWI arrest, Dina Lohan says she feels like 'a 'Parent Trapped' with the entire world watching her in a fishbowl with murky water due to no fault of her own.'
It's another trouble for the Lohans. While Lindsay Lohan managed to lay low since her release from rehab in late July this year, her mom Dina Lohan couldn't do the same. She was arrested late Thursday, September 12 in Long Island, New York for drunk driving.
Dina was pulled over at 11 P.M. by the state troopers for allegedly going 77 mph in a 55-mph zone on the Northern State Parkway in Oyster Bay town. The 50-year-old mother was speeding in a white BMW westbound on the Northern near Route 135 when the incident happened.
Police administered a blood alcohol test, which she failed for having a blood-alcohol level of 0.2 percent, more than double the legal limit of 0.08 percent. She was then booked at a local station and was charged with driving while intoxicated, aggravated DWI, and speeding.
During her processing at the State Police barracks in Farmingdale, Dina "made an allegation that she was injured during the course of the arrest." Ambulance was called to evaluate the mother of four, but paramedics found no injuries and then she recanted her claim.
She was "released to a sober third party" after issued citations. She faces arraignment in First District Court in Hempstead on September 24.
Lindsay, wearing a black cutout t-shirt with no bra and jeans combo, was spotted coming over to her mother's house in Long Island after the arrest. The "Machete" star reportedly arrived in a black Porsche with her sister, Ali Lohan, and a male companion.
Dina's lawyer Mark Heller issued a statement to Entertainment Tonight, "Dina Lohan is a good person. Her life has been dedicated to her four children. She has worked hard her entire life and she has been a 'Parent Trapped' with the entire world watching her in a fishbowl with murky water due to no fault of her own."
"She appreciates the grave seriousness of this matter and is mindful that the Nassau County District Attorney considers these types of cases a top priority. But as an attorney with 45 years of experience, I am confident that as a first time offender, with absolutely no prior record, that the Judicial System will treat Dina Lohan with even-handed fairness."
