Dina Lohan pleads not guilty to her DWI charge, leaves court in a Rolls Royce

A couple of weeks ago, Dina Lohan was arrested for a DWI. She was driving around Long Island, blitzed out of her skull, and when the police arrested her, she drunkenly claimed that the cops had injured her – a claim she later recanted after some EMTs were like “seriously, the only thing wrong with this bitch is that she’s drunk as hell.” Anyway, yesterday was Dina’s first appearance in court to be formally charged with the DWI. Dina pled not guilty (because of course she did) and she was released without bail, although she did have to surrender her driver’s license. Guess who her lawyer was? Mark Heller, the little gnome who was so terrible that he made Lindsay seem nervous about something other than the bag of coke she stashed in her vadge.

Lindsay Lohan’s mother, Dina Lohan, appeared in court on Tuesday, Sept. 24, to face charges of driving while intoxicated stemming from her arrest earlier this month. Clad in a demure, printed black dress, the 51-year-old pleaded not guilty to the charges against her at Nassau County District Court in Long Island, N.Y. She was accompanied by her attorney, Mark Heller.

Lohan isn’t off the hook just yet, though. Per TMZ, she was released without bail but forced to surrender her driver’s license. She left the court as a passenger in a silver Rolls-Royce.

As previously reported, Lohan was arrested for going 77 mph in a 55 mph zone on the Northern State Parkway in Oyster Bay at around 11 p.m. on Sept. 12. She was issued traffic tickets for speeding and arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. A breath test revealed her blood alcohol concentration to be .20 percent, which is more than twice the legal limit.

“Dina Lohan is a good person,” her lawyer told Entertainment Tonight after the arrest. “Her life has been dedicated to her four children. She has worked hard her entire life and she has been a ‘Parent Trapped’ with the entire world watching her in a fishbowl with murky water due to no fault of her own.”

He added: “She appreciates the grave seriousness of this matter and is mindful that the Nassau County District Attorney considers these types of cases a top priority. But as an attorney with 45 years of experience, I am confident that as a first time offender, with absolutely no prior record, the Judicial System will treat Dina Lohan with even-handed fairness.”

“She left the court as a passenger in a silver Rolls-Royce.” That about sums it up. Dina hasn’t had a real job in decades, she pimps out her daughters and takes a 15% cut of everything, she’s constantly drunk, she lies about everything, and her broke ass can’t afford to make the payments on her Long Island mansion, so she’s facing foreclosure. So of course she left the courthouse in a Rolls Royce! Good Lord.

    Sigh. Caught red-handed and pleading not guilty. 0.20 is an awful lot of “Listerine”.

    • NerdMomma says:

      Haha exactly. How else could one possibly plead not guilty??

      • lovegossip says:

        I think even the most guilty looking person always pleads not guilty. That is some legal thing, even when it is obvious. Then they make a deal with the DA and plead guilty next court appearance, at least that’s the way it always seems to go from an innocent persons perspective. Lol 😉

      • xvala says:

        Agree with the other commenter. This is plea bargaining, plain and simple.

  2. lucy2 says:

    So pleading not guilty DOESN’T let you off the hook? Thanks for the legal lesson, Us Weekly.

    That 2nd to last photo says it all, doesn’t it?

    The “attorney” (and I use that word lightly) and his auburn hair and day-glo “tan” (as it were) complements the orange and white wall behind him quite fetchingly. He’s also doing a great job of holding his (drunk?) client upright. Kudos to Captain Sweet Tater!

    As to Lindsey’s sweet potato face and neck and piglet-pink *cough* “gams” in her perp walk shot here, well, I’m without words.

    This woman never fails to surprise me!

  5. MrsBPitt says:

    Can’t you just see it, one day, mother and daughter sharing the same cell! Ahh, quality time together!

  6. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    Well based on that second picture, I think we know how that idiot lawyer is getting paid.

    I had to say it–I wouldn’t be surprised, like mother, like daughter.

    • doofus says:

      ew…I thought the same thing.

      just like the RH of insert-city-name-here, this woman thinks she is entitled to live the good life with no money for the good life. the APPEARANCE of wealth is all that matters. God forbid they actually have to live within their means. They’d rather lose their house, apply for bankruptcy, etc…than just live on a budget.

    I like how the troll lawyer made his statement about Dina into a promo for himself. Bad behavior really attracts bad behavior sometimes, doesn’t it?

  8. mojoman says:

    I foresee a hook-up between sweet tater lawyer and Dina (free legal fees for her, free publicity for him) *GAG*

  9. Christin says:

    I think the statement about how hard she’s worked, things are no fault of hers, etc., is just delusional. She supposedly hasn’t paid her mortgage, yet she’s able to pay for a lawyer, partying, maintaining her looks and a fancy ride.

  10. janie says:

    Oh my… The home is in foreclosure & you come & leave court in a Rolls Royce? What’s wrong with this picture?!

  11. lovegossip says:

    Ok. I hate myself for thinking this, let alone saying it out loud…..but…I almost (almost) feel sorry for Lyndsay and can almost (almost) understand why she is the way she is. I can’t stand her and know she is a little twit, but maybe (maybe) this is what was needed to get her on the right path. Maybe????

  12. Nicolette says:

    She left court in a Rolls Royce, because of course. Did they roll out a red carpet and throw rose petals at her feet too? Not much shocks me with this family anymore.

  13. v says:

    That lawyer looks like Valentino

  14. Bess says:

    The photo of the orange garden gnome and Dina embracing is vomit inducing.

    I just hope this DWI thing ends up costing Dina a lot of money (which she doesn’t have) in fines, court costs, etc. and inconvenience (losing her license, being on probation, etc.).

  15. Madriani's Girl says:

    Aside from the obvious “who’d want her?” question, one has to wonder why you never EVER hear about her dating anyone. Does she use call boys or something?

  16. Rant says:

    Not guilty? What, did “the black kid” do it? Now I see why it took so long for her offspring to own up to her issues.

  17. Shelly says:

    Seriously, what kind of a-hole goes to court in a Rolls? If you were born into massive wealth or are a billionaire, I could see it, but none of these things applies to her.
