Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan’s mother seems to be headed in the same direction. The reality TV star pleaded guilty to a DUI, several years after an earlier DUI. After leaving the scene of an accident where she rear-ended another car, she fled to her home where law enforcement accosted her, reportedly observing her fall on her face. She is expected to be sentenced to 18 days in jail and five years probation. She will also be required to participate in a victim impact panel and take part in an alcohol program.

Second DUI as well as driving on a suspended license and hit and run for Lindsay Lohan’s mom
HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) — Dina Lohan, actor Lindsay Lohan‘s mother, pleaded guilty to drunken driving on Tuesday and is expected to be sentenced to 18 days in jail and five years’ probation for rear-ending another car on Long Island and leaving the scene.
Dina Lohan, 59, was driving with a suspended license on Jan. 11, 2020, when she crashed into another car near Merrick Mall, prosecutors in Nassau County said.
The driver called police and followed Lohan to her home when she didn’t stop, authorities said. According to court documents, the police officer who responded found Lohan in the driver’s seat of her Mercedes, glassy-eyed and smelling of alcohol.
Lohan pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated and leaving the scene of an accident. She will be sentenced on Dec. 3.
Lohan starred in the reality TV show “Living Lohan,” which appeared on E! between May and July of 2008.
She was convicted of aggravated drunken driving in 2014 following an earlier arrest in Nassau and ordered to perform community service and participate in an anti-drunken driving program.
A message seeking comment was left with Lohan’s attorney.
