Hollywood actress, Lindsay Lohan was arrested Wednesday last week for Driving Under the Influence (DUI). The timing for this arrest is so unfortunate, as it coincides with the release of the poster for her upcoming movie Liz & Dick.
The 26 year old troubled star, was preparing to park her Porsche Cayenne at the Dream Hotel in Manhattan at 12.30am when she allegedly hit the knee of a Manhattan chef, Jose Rodriguez.

One of Lindsay’s passengers got out and checked her vehicle for damage, and then the group continued into the hotel to attend an event it was reported. The aggrieved Rodriguez told the New York Daily News that “people at the scene acted like I was nothing. It was like no one could touch her because she was rich and powerful.”
The man she allegedly knocked down has claimed she ‘slurred her words and smelled like alcohol’.
As Lindsay emerged from the venue at 2.30am, police were waiting for her and she was arrested on charges that she clipped a pedestrian with her car and did not stop.

Meanwhile, DJ Eddie Trunk saw the funny side, tweeting: “I see @lindsaylohan was arrested last night. She was standing next to me @Slash gig last night. I’m a bad influence.”
Lindsay is allegedly describing the incident as ‘really fishy’. And believes she is the victim of a ‘set up’ and plans to fight the claims.
Fortunately, she may have back-up in the guise of a surveillance video, which TMZ reports that it “shows the guy… is grossly exaggerating.”
Lindsay doesn’t have the best driving history. She has had a number of accidents in recent years. It is unfortunate that LiLo, always seem to allow her personal life overrule her professional one.
