Earlier this morning we learned the not so shocking news that Lindsay Lohan was arrested, sigh, again in NYC, NY after she allegedly got into a fist fight with a woman in a nightclub in the wee hours this morning. As you may recall, Lindsay was most recently arrested back in September after she allegedly ran over a pedestrian … but she managed to avoid prosecution in that case. It remains to be seen if she will get off on this bust but we do know that she will be charged with assault in NYC. BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! According to TMZ, Lindsay will also be charged with 3 more crimes here in LA in the wake of that car accident she lied about back in June. That would make 4 criminal charges, on 2 different coasts, all on the same day. Only Lindsay Lohan could pull off a feat like that.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the Santa Monica City Attorney will charge Lindsay TODAY with 3 CRIMES in connection with her car accident last June on Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica. After ramming her Porsche into a big rig, she lied to cops, telling them she was the passenger in the car when in fact she was the driver. Lindsay will be charged with:
– giving false information to a peace officer … punishable by up to 6 months in jail.
– obstructing or resisting a police officer in the performance of his duty … punishable by 1 year in jail.
– reckless driving … punishable by 90 days in jail.
As we first reported, when Lindsay is arraigned in L.A. — probably next week — the judge will revoke her probation in the jewelry heist case and set a hearing to determine if she will go to jail for a long period of time. One of the conditions of probation is that Lindsay must obey all laws. Speaking of which … her arrest this morning in NYC for assault (crime #4) could end up triggering a second reason to revoke her probation.
My head is actually spinning at the epicness of all of this trainwreckness. I mean, Lindsay has messed up before but damn, she’s truly outdone herself this time. I find it very hard to believe that the ruling judge in her probation case will let her off the hook but, then again, Lindsay does have an uncanny ability to avoid serious punishment so … we shall see. As I’ve been saying all along, for years now, until someone holds Lindsay accountable for her actions in a serious way (ie. seriously serious and long-lasting punishment) she will continue to spiral downward until she dies. It’s really as simple as that. It’s possible that Lohan may continue to avoid punishment and could continue to survive but the odds are not in her favor for a happy ending if she continues on her current path. The girl is a mess. AN ABSOLUTE MESS. If she doesn’t come to terms with the fact that her time is running out, then I do fear that we will one day wake up to very sad and tragic news. Sigh.
