Dina Lohan was arrested for (what else?) drunk driving in Long Island

A Lohan got arrested last night. And it wasn’t Lindsay! Shocking. Apparently, Dina Lohan was driving around Long Island with a .20 blood alcohol level. The legal limit is .08. So, yeah. She was blitzed. And of course she accused the cops of injuring her when she was arrested. BECAUSE SHE’S A LOHAN.

Dina Lohan was arrested for drunk driving in Long Island, NY last night … and cops say her blood alcohol level was more than TWICE the legal limit.

Lindsay Lohan’s 50-year-old mother was pulled over on the Northern State Parkway by New York State Police around 11 pm Thursday night … after she was allegedly going 77mph in a 55 in her white BMW.

During the stop, cops say she appeared intoxicated — and tested her blood alcohol level, which registered at .20 — more than twice the legal limit of .08.

According to officials, “Lohan made an allegation that she was injured during the course of the arrest” … but when medical personnel responded to the scene and determined she was fine, Dina “recanted her claim.”

Lohan was hauled to a nearby station where she was booked on two counts of driving while intoxicated and one count of speeding.

After posing for a squinty-eyed mug shot, Lohan was released to a sober 3rd party. So far, no word on WHO picked up Lohan from the station.

Lohan is due back in court later this month.

Dina’s been on a party tear this month — TMZ obtained a photo of Lohan partying like a drunken sailor at a giant party over Labor Day weekend.

People at the party tell us she was a mess that night — slurring her speech and zoning out.
Our Lohan sources tell us, Lindsay was NOT the person who picked Dina up from the station — in fact, we’re told Lindsay didn’t find out about the arrest until the story broke this morning.

[From TMZ]

What is there to really say about this mess? I guess now that Lindsay is “sober,” Dina is just drinking for two. “Give me Lindsay’s shot!” Dina slurred across the bar. “Misser Saudi prince will pay fer it.” And how does Dina still have a home in Long Island to drive home to, you know? I thought she was facing foreclosure. Maybe some of Lindsay’s Oprah money helped her out on that too. Anyway, yeah. Dina. Drunk. Disaster. Dr. Phil knew it.

    Please save that Mugshot and use it for everything Dina Lohan In perpetuity

      At first I thought it was Brandi Glanville.

    • Emily says:

      This lady is a piece of sh*t. I used to be really close friends with a girl who’s mom was exactly like Dina Lohan.. there’s a personality type… The woman who wants to be young forever and probably never should have had kids at all. Her mom was always trying to go out to bars and clubs with us, and their house was the house everyone could go get wasted at when we were underaged. Those kind of parents generally don’t raise well-balanced kids.

      My heart goes out to Lindsay Lohan, what chance did she really stand with parents like this?

      • Hakura says:

        @Emily – I agree, I’ve always felt sympathy for the Lohan kids, they really never even had a chance. Not even *1* half decent parent, then being complete fame whores on top of that. Dina is the sort of woman who is unsatisfied with her life, has regrets, & only judges her life’s ‘value’ by money & status, so then has depression over everything, & no doubt made it clear to her kids that she blamed *having them* as the reason she never got where she wanted in life.

        Likely a reason Lindsay got into showbiz in the first place, (amid tons of pressure from Dina, that is). Guilt for causing her mom’s sadness, wanting to make her happy’ whatever it took. Then when she became successful, Dina started living *through* Lindsay, as though she somehow even felt like she was Lindsay. The entitlement, Wanting all the status & perks, to be in pics on the red carpet, & show up uninvited to celeb events & auctions.

        Her kid’s only value to her (& that POS sperm donor she created them with) comes with a dollar sign in front of it. As far as I’m concerned, she & PMKris should be roomies in Hell.

    I don’t think any of us thought this would ever happen…

  3. Stefanie says:

    This whole family makes me embarrassed to say I’m from Long Island. I swear, we’re not all like this.

  4. Ninks says:

    I’m mostly surprised that this hasn’t happened a lot sooner. And many times.

  5. Obvious says:

    thank you for covering this. I about peed me pants form giggling in glee when I saw this on TMZ.

    She’s got a long way to go before she catches up to Linds, but this is a start!

  6. Fran says:

    Wasn’t Dina always drinking for two?

  7. neelyo says:

    ‘Leave her alone, she’s just a little girl – ‘ oh wait. Never mind.

  8. Mia 4S says:

    How completely not surprising!

    So will this be on the reality show?

  9. Fran says:

    Wasn’t Dina always drinking for two? With and without Lindsay.

  10. Jaded says:

    “Occifer…*HIC*…ai wuz given a date rape pill or sumthin’..ya, thassit!, a date rape drug…not drunk I tellya… *ZZZZZ*

  11. GMarchetti says:

    Thanks, Dina!

    We needed some Lohan fun…

  12. MAC says:

    I do not like the snarky comments and this being taken as a joke. Being an alcoholic is one sad thing. Having an alcoholic mother can be heartbreaking and a nightmare. I am going to pray for all of them

    • bluhare says:

      I don’t think anyone else likes it either, MAC.

      That being said, watching this is karma for someone who’s enabled one daughter, appeared drunk on TV (and denied it), then claimed to not have any substance issues. So, yeah, I’m right there with everyone else. And I’m an alcoholic too.

    • Stefanie says:

      If this woman was down and out and actually self aware, I’d agree with you. But this woman has every outlet to seek help and treatment and she is so far in denial she preaches to others about her false sobriety. Her daughter is exactly like her, an entitled little twat who thinks she knows better than everyone else and instead of using the money they had for good or the wellbeing of their family, they put it up their nose. Alcoholism is a terrible thing, but this woman has had every opportunity to seek GOOD help and she didn’t. This is not some charity case where someone can’t afford rehab or no one knows about their problem. This is a woman who lives vicariously through her daughter at her daughter’s expense and wants to be 25 again and doesn’t care who it hurts.

    • Alexis says:

      I don’t think Dina is an alchohlic, actually. I’ve never heard that before.

    • Skins says:

      C’mon man, this is celebitchy

    • HappyMom says:

      She’s pathetic-agreed. However, I have little sympathy for someone like her who has pimped her children out from a young age. She is a horrible person and terrible mother-and that has nothing to do with her being an alcoholic.

    • Lucky says:

      I don’t know of the two are mutually exclusive- alcoholism is sad, my heart actually does hurt a little for her family, and she is an entitled woman acting in irresponsible and dangerous ways that needs to face the consequences. We all want the world to feel fair (even though it isn’t) and watching a family like this seemingly squander all the money and opportunity afforded to them and not face consequences ruffles people’s feathers.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      You’re a good person, MAC.

      Dina Lohan is not a good person. That’s the majority of the reason why people are cracking jokes.

      You’re right that it’s not kind, but it’s hard to feel empathy for the Lohans when they have such a long track record of lies, theft, violence, and, yes, addiction.

    • deanna says:


      I so agree with you… it is tragic. I feel so badly that people lack empathy for others and are so quick to judge. A local priest just was arrested for DUI in my neighborhood and it was pled down to wet reckless do to his powerful connections- My point is that we must forgive people and give them chances to correct their behavior and not be so unkind. She did not hurt anyone, and will be forced to 9 month DUI school. Hopefully she’ll work on herself and break her addictions. Tragic.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        She didn’t hurt anyone THIS time. Next time, the innocent population might not be so lucky. Driving 77 on the Northern Parkway whilst twice the legal limit is asking for an accident. It’s a dark and somewhat narrow highway the closer you get to Hauppauge (which is where it ends) and the other end turns into the Grand Central Parkway once you hit Queens, which is no bed of roses either.

    • Emily C. says:

      My father is an alcoholic. I know what it is to have an alcoholic parent.

      I do not know what it is to have an asshole parent or a parent who pimped me out. Dina Lohan is an absolutely terrible person. Take away the booze and she’d still be an absolutely terrible person. It is a serious disservice to alcoholics to claim that the reason Dina is an asshole is that she’s an alcoholic. She’s an asshole because she chooses to be.

    • nicegirl says:

      I really love that you are going to pray for them. Just had to say it.

  13. Kcaia says:

    It can be funny, but its sad at the same time. But there just is no excuse for drunk driving or any situation where innocent people are put in danger. If you keep spiraling down, eventually you’ll crash on the bottom, and when you crash, someone’s gonna get hurt.

  14. lulu1 says:

    They should just keep a Lohan Room in the Rehab centre! I’m sure there’s lots more on the way…has Ali started taking drugs yet? How about the boys?

    Tick tock tick tock

  15. Relli says:


    I love how when even the Senior Lohans cant keep them out of the spotlight for long. Its like they feel the force of other train wrecks stealing their thunder and title for the most dysfunctional family ever and so they so SOMETHING to get the attention back on them.

  16. pantalones en fuego says:

    50?!?! If you told me she was 60 or 65 I wouldn’t bat an eye. This is what hard living does to you kids.

  17. logan says:

    And this is what Michael Lohan has to say about the situation…3…2….1

  18. janie says:

    So sad and pathetic… I’m grateful this wasn’t Lindsay and hopefully she’ll steer clear of this mess. Dina is still her Mom, enough said.

  19. break says:

    There should be mandatory jail time for drunk driving – even on the first offense.

  20. Mabs says:

    Her face in the third pic should be gif’d…it’s an indelible reality. lol

  21. Kiddo says:

    Why are there 2 counts of drunk driving in one event? Just curious. Does it have to do with blood percentage?

  22. Lflips says:

    Why are people finding joy or humor in this situation? It isn’t funny, it’s sad. I pity this woman and her family; I can’t imagine what it must be like to be such a complete mess.

  23. phaksi says:

    The rancid apple doesnt fall far from the tree

  24. Meggin says:

    Oh geez. We are all so shocked… not. As someone who is originally from Long Island, this family is an embarrassment!!

  25. dorothy says:

    I’ve always thought of her as just an old barfly.

  26. eliza says:

    Low life drunks like this are why innocent people die every day on our streets and major highways. This woman is a pathetic loser and it is too bad she will get a slap on the wrist and drive again in several months.

  27. RachelDunn says:

    like mother, like daughter.

  28. Shelly says:

    Even Lindsay didn’t look THIS blitzed in her mugshots!

  29. ZAK says:

    I don’t pity Dina Lohan because she went out partying and drinking with her young daughter eventhough she knew he daughter was an addict. Also she pimped her daughter out to the entertainment industry just to get riches and fame. She is a terrible, terrible selfish mother who only cares about herself.

  30. Ag says:

    “ON” Long Island, people! “On”. Not “In”. :) (There are many towns ON Long Island, fyi.)

  31. Her indoors says:

    I pity the people who were on the road at the same time as this woman having their lives endangered due to her selfish, entitled behaviour.

  32. Saffron says:

    The whole family is completely dysfunctional which is why I think it will be almost impossible for Lindsay to turn things around. Wouldn’t be surprised if the whole family were afflicted with borderline personality disorder.

  33. Jaded says:

    She will never EVER accept responsibility for her actions. She drove drunk (undoubtedly not the first time), and put others lives at risk. Then she tried to drunk-lie her way out of it by saying she got injured by the arresting officer. Puhleeze.

    She’s got narcissistic personality disorder, and is possibly a borderline sociopath because she just does not understand the consequences of whoring out her kids for fame and fortune any way she can. She’s ridden on Lindsay’s coat-tails, gleefully spent her money, and enabled her addictions by treating her like a drinking buddy. In my book that doesn’t deserve pity, it deserves the all the moral outrage and castigation she’s getting on this site.

  34. n m says:

    Too bad she didn’t crash into a fiery inferno with her loser exhusband along with her. It would be like Lindsay winning the lottery.

  35. Barbara says:

    May I say that this morning I heard an interview with Michael re her DUI, he did not trash her like Dina would have done to him. He just wants her to get help.

  36. umyeah says:

    she’s a delusional bitch who is endangering everyone around her by driving drunk. I don’t care if she goes and wraps her car around a tree, but when you are messing with innocent people’s lives, that is a whole ‘nother matter. Celebrities don’t get real consequences, so she probably won’t even take this dui, or any other future dui’s, seriously.

  37. shannon says:

    It’s very obvious why Lindsay is such a mess. She never had a chance. I believe she’s finally opened her eyes and pushed Dina away, which explains the lack of a well-crafted, preemptive PR statement. Dina does not currently have access to Lindsay’s team.

  38. Falula says:

    Oh my word, the official statement from Dina’s “people” is out and it’s priceless.

    She’s a parent, TRAPPED!

    You can’t make this sh*t up.

  39. DailyNightly says:

    I’m sure Lindsay can recommend a nice rehab facility.

    • MegG says:

      Sorry I don’t feel sympathy for them at all. How many chances does it take? My dad was hit by a drunk driver in his early 20s. Almost died. Had to have surgery and still has the physical and emotional scars today. His parents pleaded for the state to get the jaws of life. Which is how we have them now.

  40. nicegirl says:

    I sure hope Lindsay can keep her head clear throughout all of this crud. It is hard to deal with difficult parents.

    Best wishes to the Lohan kids.

  41. Jayna says:

    She’s one of those middle-aged women who can’t face aging and their life so their dependence on alcohol and prescription pills probably already there intensifies.

  42. rudy says:

    Dina Lohan is a greedy, abusive, self-centered, personality disordered mess. She is also an alcoholic.

    Dina CHOOSES to do nothing about her addiction. This is why Lindsey’s rehab place barred her entry.
    Dina takes no responsibility for any of her actions.
    Save your pity and prayers for those who do.

  43. Str8Shooter says:

    Good Lord! Had to do a double take on that 2nd pic…she looks like that painting The Scream!!!
