Lohan Defends Herself
Actress Lindsay Lohan who was arrested on Tuesday morning for drunk driving and drug possession just days after leaving rehab and turning over a new leaf, defended herself on Tuesday evening in an email to Billy Bush of Access Hollywood.
"I am innocent... did not do drugs they're not mine. I was almost hit by my assistant Tarin's mom I appreciate everyone giving me my privacy," Lohan said in the message.
Lohan was pulled over by police after she was reported for driving erratically through the streets of Santa Monica, California, pursuing a car being driven by the mother of an assistant, who quit on Monday.
Police have confirmed the former assistant's mother was the person who reported Lohan, calling authorities on her cell phone. Police found the two women in a heated argument at a parking lot before arresting Lohan.
Lohan had been celebrating a friend's birthday in Venice, California when she found out about her assistant resignation which apparently upset her. She was charged with a DUI and then police reportedly found cocaine in her pockets when she was booked.
Lohan had worn an alcohol-monitoring ankle bracelet since her July 13 release from rehab and was tested daily to support her sobriety, her attorney Blair Berk said. She said Lohan had relapsed and was receiving medical care at an undisclosed location.
Can the truly talented actress pull herself together and leave her trainwreck partying ways behind? Here are several images of "Mean Girls" star in the days leading to the widely reported arrest. Lohan posed for the paparazzi drinking Coke, Red Bull and a vitamin mineral water.
