Dina Lohan, the mother of actress Lindsay Lohan, was arrested on January 12, 2020 after an alleged drunken hit-and-run collision. Reportedly, the accident happened on Long Island after the “Celebrity Big Brother” star finished dinner at Outback SteakHouse. According to police, the 57-year-old crashed her 2020 Mercedes-Benz into another vehicle and fled the scene.
Lohan was followed to her home by the other driver who had called 911 following the incident. Nassau County police claim that when approached, Lohan had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, and alcohol on her breath. The report mentions that when Lohan exited her vehicle, she was unable to walk and fell to the ground. Lohan, however, claims that she was pushed to the ground by the officer.
This is not Lohan’s first instance with the law. In 2014, she was charged with a felony DUI after driving drunk on Long Island’s Northern State Parkway. Lohan was charged with four violations, including leaving the scene of an accident and driving without a license.

If there are no injuries involved, the crime is considered a misdemeanor. However, if someone is injured the fine can reach up to $10,000 and may result in a sentence of four years.
