Actress Lindsay Lohan was arrested on July 24 at Santa Monica for alleged drink driving and possession of cocaine, just days after she checked out of rehab. However, Lohan, who is already facing a DUI charge in Beverly Hills, is out of custody and is receiving medical attention. The 'Mean Girls' star has also been charged for driving on a suspended license, reports the BBC.
Santa Monica police spokesman Lt. Alex Padilla said that a small amount of cocaine has been recovered from the actress.
Lohan's attorney Blair Berk said that she had a 'relapse', but insisted that the star was 'safe', and receiving treatment. "Throughout this period, I have received timely and accurate reports from the testing companies. Unfortunately, late [Monday] I was informed that Lindsay had relapsed. The bracelet has now been removed. She is safe, out of custody and presently receiving medical care," Berk said.
Lohan's mother Dina Lohan said that the family was doing everything to help the actress, and insisted that she wouldn't give up on her daughter. "We are doing everything in our power in support of Lindsay and I won't give up - this is my daughter and we love her," she told the Insider.
The 21-year-old was arrested in the end of May on suspicion of DUI and following her arrest, she checked into rehab for the second time. In the middle of this month, Lohan completed treatment at Promises rehab in Malibu. The starlet also wore alcohol tags for monitoring alcohol consumption levels.
