FARMINGDALE, N.Y. -- Lindsay Lohan's mother is facing an aggravated drunken driving charge in New York following a traffic stop on Long Island.
State police say Dina Lohan, 50, was stopped on the Northern State Parkway in Nassau County at 11 p.m. Thursday after troopers clocked her driving a BMW at 77 mph (124 km/h) in a 55-mph (88 km/h) zone.
She took a breath test that pegged her blood-alcohol level at 0.20 per cent, police said. That's more than twice New York's legal limit of 0.08 per cent.
Lohan was brought to a state police barracks in Farmingdale, issued tickets for driving while intoxicated and speeding then released to a "sober third party," state police said in a news release. She is due in court Sept. 24.
Police called an ambulance and had medics examine Lohan after she complained she had been hurt during the arrest. No injuries were found and Lohan subsequently recanted the claim, police said.
Phone calls and emails seeking comment from a lawyer and publicist who have represented Lohan in the past weren't immediately returned.
The traffic stop happened about 40 kilometres east of New York City and about 15 kilometres from Lohan's home in Merrick.
