So … news about Lindsay Lohan has been pretty quiet in the last few weeks so you have prolly been thinking … she’s behaving herself. Well, yes, that is technically true (er, except for that arrest in NYC back in September). BUT, her past bad behavior is catching up with her (again). Remember that car accident back in June where she said she wasn’t the driver then it turned out that she was the driver and had only lied about not being the driver? Yeah, well, now prosecutors are going after her for that lie. IF she gets busted for the lie, it will trigger her probation from her jewelry theft conviction and it is likely — here we go again — that she will go back to jail. I mean. Yeah.
Lindsay Lohan will be charged with the crime of lying to police after her car accident in June on Pacific Coast Highway … TMZ has learned. We broke the story … Lohan told cops she was NOT behind the wheel of her Porsche when it slammed into the back of an 18-wheeler. Fact is she was — according to multiple witnesses. Law enforcement sources tell us … the case will be filed as a misdemeanor by the Santa Monica City Attorney … possibly this week. The charge could spell huge trouble for Lindsay, because she’s currently on probation for the jewelry heist. The criminal filing could trigger a probation violation, and Judge Stephanie Sautner — the jewelry judge — could send her to the slammer for a long, long time. And law enforcement sources tell us … cops found prescription pills in her purse after the crash. Witnesses tell us pills were also scattered in her trunk. Our sources say authorities were prepared to charge LiLo with drug crimes, but Lindsay’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, gave cops documentations from Lindsay’s doctor, saying the pills were properly prescribed. Authorities then backed off that charge. As for the charge of lying to cops, Lindsay almost dodged that bullet. You may recall, after the accident, Lindsay went to the hospital where she was interviewed by cops, and that’s when she told them she wasn’t behind the wheel. Her lawyer, Shawn Holley, made a mad dash for the hospital to muzzle her client, but she was a few minutes too late … Sources at the L.A. City Attorney’s Office tell TMZ … they were unaware the Santa Monica City Attorney was going to file criminal charges against Lindsay until they read our post this morning. They are “gathering information” but so far no decision has been made regarding a possible probation violation in Lindsay’s jewelry heist case.
I mean … we’ve all been here before, we know the drill. Will she actually go to jail? Who knows. She manages to avoid jail a lot … then again, she has been locked up so … we’ll see. It’s been far too long since we’ve had a Lindsay Going to Jail story so, I guess we now know that things are right in the world.
