Before this deal was offered, the prosecution also offered a plea deal requiring Lohan to go to rehab. It would be her sixth stint to rehab if the plea deal goes through. Again, she is refusing to admit any sort of wrongdoing in the car accident case.
Last June the troubled starlet was involved in a car accident where she rear-ended a dump truck in Los Angeles. Her statement to authorities clearly says that her assistant was driving and not the “Liz and Dick” biopic star. Now, police believe they have evidence to prove she’s lying.
This year, Lohan was charged of hitting a pedestrian and now is under scrutiny for an assault of a New York psychic. The evidence that shows she lied to the police is a violation of her probation following the necklace theft conviction. While no drugs or alcohol are tied to the accident, lying to the police is a certain violation.
The current charges as a result of the car accident are now reckless driving, lying to police officers and obstructing an investigation. All charges are misdemeanors in California, but they add to a long list of legal problems for the 26 year-old actress.
The young actress was apparently visiting some late night hot spots in the Big Apple when the accident occurred. She was driving her Porsche and clipped a chef that was on break in an alley. She then drove on believing there was no problem. Lohan stuck to her guns that the charges were bogus and she seems to have been right.
Lohan was served with a notice to appear at the desk scheduled for tomorrow, October 23. However, today the prosecution said that it no longer intended to pursue charges against Lohan and she no longer was required to uphold the date.
According to sources, the chef had alleged Lohan smelled of alcohol and was slurring her speech badly. The surveillance video of the area captured the accident and basically cleared Lohan of any wrong-doing in the incident. Considering she’s still on probation for the theft of a diamond necklace in California, Lohan got a big break.
