·1 min read

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — Dina Lohan, Lindsay Lohan's mother, pleaded guilty to drunken driving 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.

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 with the engine on, and observed her with the odor of alcohol on her breath, glassy eyes and slurred speech.

The officer said, at the time of the 2020 incident, that when Lohan got out of the car, she fell to the ground and accused the officer of pushing her, and claimed she had only had one glass of wine.

Lohan pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated and leaving the scene of an accident. She will be sentenced on Dec. 3.
