Lindsay Lohan's Mother Arrested For Drunken Driving, Speeding

Dina Lohan, the mother of troubled actress Lindsay Lohan, was arrested and charged with drunken driving on Thursday night after she was stopped for speeding in New York, police said on Friday.

Lohan, 50, was traveling at more than 20 miles per hour (32 km per hour) over the speed limit on Long Island and a breath test showed that her alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit, police said.

"Lohan was issued traffic tickets for the two DWI offenses and speeding," police said in a statement, adding that she was released and is due to appear in court on Sept. 24.

Lindsay Lohan, 27, who shot to fame as a child actress and appeared in hits such as "Mean Girls," recently completed her sixth trip to rehab. She admitted in an interview with Oprah Winfrey last month that she was an addict but said she was working with a sober coach to stay clean.
