Dina Lohan, a Merrick resident and mother of Lindsay Lohan, was arrested Thursday after police said she was driving drunk while speeding on the Northern State Parkway.
According to New York State Police, at about 11 p.m., officers observed a white BMW heading westbound on the Northern State Parkway at 77 miles per hour. Lohan, 50, was pulled over just west of Rt. 135 in Syosset, where she was found to be intoxicated, cops said.
She was arrested and charged with DWI and aggravated DWI after a breath test revealed her BAC to be .20, more than twice the legal limit.
After being taken in by police for processing, Lohan alleged that she was injured during the arrest. Emergency personnel were called, but when they arrived, Lohan did not have any injuries and she allegedly recanted her claim.
She was issued traffic tickets for the two DWI offenses and speeding. She was later released to a sober third party, police said, and she's due to appear at First District Court on Sept. 24 at 9 a.m.
