Lindsay Lohan Arrested Again for Drunk Driving

Only a week after finishing a 45 day stint in rehab, Linsday Lohan was arrested and charged with California DUI and possession of cocaine.

The 21-year old actress was questioned by Santa Monica Police shortly after 2:00 am Tuesday morning when the passengers of a black Cadillac Escalade reported being chased by a white Denali SUV. Police located the two vehicles in the Santa Monica Civic Center parking lot, just a block from the police station.

Lohan was behind the wheel of the Denali, and she purportedly failed a field sobriety test and was taken into custody. Her blood alcohol content registered around .12 percent. The legal limit in California is .08. During a pre-booking search, cocaine was found in her pants pocket. As it turns out, the people in the Escalade knew Lohan but did not realize it was her following them.

Lohan already faces a drunk driving charge for a Memorial Day weekend accident. She has been wearing an alcohol detection ankle bracelet since leaving Promises treatment center.

Lohan was booked on two misdemeanors, driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license, and two felony charges, drug possession and transport of a narcotic. Bail was set at $25,000 and she remained in custody at dawn.
