Lindsay LohanÃÂ is in hot water (again), this time for lying to the police.
She was in an accident back in June, when her Porsche slammed into the back of an 18-wheeler on Pacific Coast Highway. Immediately following the crash, Lindsay told police she wasn’t behind the wheel. Turns out – she was, and she lied about it. Here’s more from TMZ:
Law enforcement sources tell us … the case will be filed as a misdemeanor by the Santa Monica City Attorney … possibly this week.
The charge could spell huge trouble for Lindsay, because she’s currently on probation for the jewelry heist.ÃÂ The criminal filing could trigger a probation violation, andÃÂ Judge Stephanie SautnerÃÂ — the jewelry judge — could send her to the slammer for a long, long time.
And law enforcement sources tell us … cops found prescription pills in her purse after the crash.ÃÂ Witnesses tell us pills were also scattered in her trunk.ÃÂ Our sources say authorities were prepared to charge LiLo with drug crimes, but Lindsay’s lawyer,ÃÂ Shawn Holley, gave cops documentations from Lindsay’s doctor, saying the pills were properly prescribed.ÃÂ Authorities then backed off that charge.
As for the charge of lying to cops, Lindsay almost dodged that bullet.ÃÂ You may recall, after the accident, Lindsay went to the hospital where she was interviewed by cops, and that’s when she told them she wasn’t behind the wheel.ÃÂ Her lawyer, Shawn Holley, made a mad dash for the hospital to muzzle her client (see video), but she was a few minutes too late.
Will ANYTHING happen? No, probably not. Lindsay has nine lives, I swear.
