Lindsay Lohan Arrested

Lindsay Lohan
I have no intention of relaying the latest and greatest "news" that is Lindsay Lohan's life (nor any celebutante) but it's a Sunday and this dirty liar deserves the bad press. We all know she appears to be an alcoholic and that she has drug problems of some sort, but you can add actual drug addiction to the alcoholism of our favorite little starlet, as she was arrested over the weekend on suspicion of DUI, and the LAPD found cocain in her car.

Somehow, I don't think Lohan is going to get a 23-day jail sentence for this one. I see now fewer than five articles in my news reader, all reporting the same boring and totally expected story.

Lohan, 20, and two other people were in her 2005 Mercedes SL-65 when it crashed on Sunset Boulevard around 5:30 a.m., Sgt. Mike Foxen said. It appeared Lohan was speeding, Lt. Mitch McCann said at an afternoon news conference.

Officers at the scene found a "usable amount" of a drug tentatively identified as cocaine, McCann said. He declined to say where the drug was found other than to say Lohan was not carrying it.

Cops don't screw around when it comes to drugs in the car, and not having it on you won't save your ass. In cases when there are multiple occupants and no one claims the drugs, everyone has been prosecuted and convicted of possession before, it's not unprecedented.

I think Lohan spent all of four minutes in rehab and it was clearly a dishonest attempt to kill all of the stories about her drunken escapades. Denial is a powerful thing all by itself, but when you're rich and nobody ever tells you no, it's probably going to end up killing you.

Or in Lohan's case, who is a moving disaster area, kill innocent bystanders on the road or pretty much anywhere nearby.

You'd think that lawmakers would issue stiffer penalties to keep people like this in line with societies values of obeying the law, yet instead you get the exact opposite.

That crash [a month earlier] was credited with prompting Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to sign a law that set steep financial penalties for paparazzi who commit assaults while trying to obtain celebrity photos.

Yes, because we all know what a terrible crime it is to take somebody's picture when they've got more money than God. Oh, the horror of it all.

You know I can't help but think if Lohan would sober up for five minutes, she'd come to the realization that her drinking, drug abuse, and constant partying are a huge reason why she gets harassed by photographs -- it sure as hell ain't because she's an A-list actress, I'll say that much.

Maybe if she really did go into rehab, they'd get bored with her average life style and just move on.
Per the AP, officers at the scene found a "usable amount" of a drug tentatively identified as cocaine, but declined to say where it was found other than to say Lohan was not carrying it. A photog for X-17, which first reported on the crash, says Lohan about an hour before the incident looked "completely wasted... like [she] had been partying all night, and she appeared to be in no condition to drive." (tvg)

Yeah, what was I thinking?
