Drunken media obsession Lohan busted with coke



Tbdlohan072507 It's enough to make you believe there's no magic in the world: Lindsay Lohan, who slogged through two stints in rehab and was even voluntarily wearing an alcohol-monitoring ankle bracelet, has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and cocaine possession early Tuesday, the AP reports. And her sobriety officially ends at two weeks. A new record!

Lindsay, who is already facing DUI charges in Beverly HIlls for a Memorial Day weekend accident, was busted by police in the parking lot of Santa Monica's Civic Center after they got a call about a white Denali chasing a black Escalade, Sgt. Shane Talbot said. And who says the SUV was dead?

Apparently the three people in the Escalade knew Lohan and her two passengers, but were unaware she was chasing them. Sounds like another case of normal L.A. driving gone wrong.

A breath test turned up a result of about .13 percent, plenty more than the .08 legal limit in California. LiLo was booked on two misdemeanor charges of DUI and driving on a suspended license (we know how that one goes) and two charges of cocaine possession -- found in her pants pockets -- and transporting a narcotic.

This is amid reports from X17 that Lohan is trying to sell photos directly to the paparazzi or $30,000 or more, making LiLo sound more desperate by the minute. TMZ says she’s gone back to rehab, but is eschewing Promises this time around. The site also reports she faces up to six years in prison if they really throw the book at her.

We're betting TriStar is really rethinking the media blitz for I Know Who Killed Me right about now.
