Troubled star Lindsay Lohan has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving. 'The Georgia Rule' actress lost control of her Mercedes convertible at around 5:30 a.m. Saturday, hitting a curb and trees, and was taken to Century City Hospital where she was treated for minor injuries.
B After receiving a 911 call about the incident, Beverly Hills Police placed Lohan under arrest on suspicion of DUI after finding a small amount of a substance, thought to be cocaine, at the scene of the crash.
Lt. Mitch McCann of the Beverly Hills Police said it appeared as if Lohan was speeding when she lost control of the vehicle. He also added the drugs found were "not on (Lohan's) person," but declined to reveal where they had been discovered. Two people traveling in the car with the actress were not injured, and Lohan is not currently being held in custody.
The father of actress Lindsay Lohan has admitted he is worried his estranged daughter could be flying off the rails. Michael Lohan, who himself has spent time in prison for fraud and drink driving, says he hopes the 20-year-old does not make the same mistakes as he did in life.
The pair has not met for two years, but in an interview with a British newspaper Michael claims that he has been speaking with his daughter on the phone for the past two months. "In one of our conversations she told me, 'Daddy, I am just like you! I am you'. I'm the first to admit I've made mistakes in the past - whether it was from acting out, abusing cocaine and alcohol or listening to the wrong people," he added. "But I hope and pray my daughter learns from my mistakes. I don't want her to end up where I did."
Lindsay Lohan had her movie breakthrough in 2004's Mean Girls but has since become more well-known for her notorious partying on the Hollywood circuit. Her 47-year-old father, a former Wall Street trader, admits he "doesn't know what to believe" concerning the rumour mill surrounding his daughter.
"I want to look in her eyes and know the truth. I can help her in a lot of ways," he said
