Lindsay Lohan To Be Charged With Making False Statements To Police

November 07, 2012 04:00 PM by Donna W. Martin

More legal troubles plague Punk’d star, Lindsay Lohan. And this time, she may receive a jail sentence. Lohan faces criminal charges for giving false statements to the police following a car accident she had back in June on the Pacific Coast Highway.

According to TMZ, following the car crash in June, Lohan told police officers that she wasn’t the one driving the vehicle. However, there were multiple witnesses at the scene of the accident that said Lohan was in fact the one behind the wheel. And now the Santa Monica City Attorney is gathering information to file criminal charges against Lohan.

Giving false statements to the police carries an obstruction of justice charge. An obstruction of justice charge may not hold that much weight under other circumstances, but in Lohan’s case, she is on probation for jewelry theft and could be hit with a more severe punishment as a result.

In addition, police officers on the scene found pills in Lohan’s purse and scattered throughout the trunk of her car. These pills were allegedly covered by prescription but according to Business Insider, a new charge for obstruction of justice could very well cause the police to take a much closer look at the pills. And if the pills are not covered by prescription, a whole other can of worms will be opened and drug related charges would surely ensue.

What do you think of Lohan’s latest run in with law enforcement? Do you think Lohan will just get a slap on the wrist for giving the police false statements? Or do you think she is headed for a jail sentence this time around? And what about those pills? Do you think they are covered by a legitimate prescription or could it be she’s using? We know you have an opinion and we’d love to hear it, so post a comment, and tell us all about it.

    First of all who really cares about Lindsay Lohan. The whole family are abunch of pigs who would do anything to get heir names in the news, Now, This is why the local government has no money. They take these people in show business to court. They get a high profile attorney and the judges lets them off. Then they laugh their way out of the courtroom and do it all over again.

    Another slap on the wrist or not even that. Pretty soon she’ll be another 007 – License to kill.

    Good God, just lock the bitch up! I am so infernally tired of reading about her and her “misfortunes.” Half the U.S. populace would cry for her advantages. Stop offering her work so she just evaporates!

    Lindsay, it would be cool if you got your #!%# together, you might have something great to give like Robert Downey Jr. Quit lying to the cops, in fact get out of California, get educated and do something with yourself. You got the looks, get educated,and then you will be dangerous! Quit being stupid

    Like some said before, Lohan in a train wreck in progress. Hopefully, she will get older and uglier and fall out of view before she does herself in for good.

    Lindsay is beautiful, talented, …..and about
    4 sandwiches short of a full picnic basket. It is time for the studios, the fans, Hollywood, California, and anyone else interested in her to simply….CUT HER LOOSE! She does not want to be normal, and probably never will. What a shame that such talent is wasted!

    You must admit that she looks sexy in that photo above. I don’t think that I could resist her, and I don’t think I would want to. I would love to party with her, and sex her up real good. Everyone should leave her alone and cut her some slack.
    I always feel bad for someone who gets jammed up on some BS DUI and now they want to throw her in jail every time she’s caught spiting on the sidewalk. As the story said, this (lying to cops about who was driving) would likely not be an issue, had it not been for the previous things. It seems her troubles go back to the night her housekeeper called the police on her, resulting in her first DUI – a BS-DUI in my opinion. Everyone should imagine for a minute what her public image would be like now, had that not happened. It would likely be totally different.
    In reality Ms. Lohan is no different from most artists who are hot and successful. She wants to party and live it up. I can’t blame her for doing exactly what so many before her have done. Name any great artist… usually you’ll find they’ve used alcohol and drugs. Think about it – the Beatles, the Stones, the Who, the Doors, Aerosmith, Prince, Hendrix, Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, Danny Partridge, Cindy Brady, and even “Wha-chue talkin ’bout” Willis – they all partied. It would be harder to come up with names of artists who didn’t party.
    The thing that is most unfair about the war on partying, is some people are perhaps lucky and get away with it, while some, such as Robert Downey Jr., and perhaps now Ms. Lohan, get on a run of bad luck and get caught all the time. One of the saddest truths about the war on partying is that the most harm and hurt that results from partying, is the harm and hurt that is dished out by the criminal justice system.
    Lindsay, take some good advice – you need to stop driving for a while. Driving is where you are vulnerable. Driving seems to be the only place you are vulnerable, and know this, there are people in this town who would like to see you fail. It helps normal people justify their mediocrity when people like you loose it all. Find a private place to drive if you need to blow off steam in a car. If you end up killing someone in that car of yours, or even if you are in an accident that is not your fault and you’re sober, if they find anything in your blood, even from a few days back, they will try to put you away for a long, long time. I don’t know you, but I don’t want to see that happen to you, or anyone for that matter. Let me tell you this though, you are right on the edge – you may not know it or believe it, but you are just one tiny mistake away from a total catastropy. I heard a story of a guy in L.A. who already had a DUI or two. He was driving home from a friends wedding. On the way home there was a guy on a motorcycle who had stopped in the middle of the freeway and turned off all the lights on his motorcycle – he had a suicide note in his pocket. The guy driving from the wedding had drank a few drinks, but he was not what any experienced drunk would call wasted. He ran into the back of the guy in the motorcycle and that guy (with the suicide note) died. They charged the guy driving from the wedding with vehicular homicide due to his prior DUI’s. He was facing like 25 to life in prison and they scared him into taking a deal for 5 to 7 years in prison – a bad choice I think, but he was afraid to take the chance of going before a jury.
    Ms. Lohan’s troubles all relate to driving. Well, there was that thing with the necklace I guess, but she would have easily gotten out of that had she not had the prior other issues at the time.
    I think that Ms. Lohan perhaps needs a party guru, someone who can show her how to party (in private) and not get busted. Someone who knows the rules of evidence and who knows what to say to the Police should the need arise… someone who can provide a layer of shielding, if you will, between her and the law. A person in her position should be able to party and live whatever life they choose, and not be burdened by intrusions of law enforcement. She should never mix it up with the Police at all, but it will require her to not drive – it’s that simple. She should hire a full time driver. There are lots of people in this town who would gladly drive her around for $100 a day, for $1000 a week she could find someone to be her full time driver, and drive her around 24/7. I would probably do it for free, if she let me party with her too, and if she threw me a piece of that sexy little tail of hers from time to time.

    About the only way she can come out ahead in this world is to just finally put her into a controled . minimum security for 9-12 months with constant obsevation & one on one counciling . If she4 fails that , she will probably neverlive a normal life . Like most in her Hollywood ” to much , too young , with no parental control ” she has had tyoo many chances so far without any consequences that are meaningful . You can threaten only so many times before these young people depend on the routine slap on the wrist that they always seem to get.Until there`s a judge with the balls to get tough with these cases , there is NO answer . !!!

    The most she’ll be charged with is contempt for lying about being behind the wheel and the most that carries is a 21 day sentence, which she won’t get since she has the money for the type of attorney who gets this stuff swept under the rug. If it was a regular person like me, I’d be in jail with a probation hold (since when you’re on probation and get a new charge, you are SUPPOSED to sit in jail with NO BOND until you go before the judge and your probation officer to determine whether you will get your probation revoked or not). She shouldn’t be allowed to be on the pills anyway legal or not since she was in rehab for Rx drug abuse as well as cocaine! She’ll buy her way out of this just like she has everything else, while the regular people of the world who do the same thing would’ve been on their 4th felony by now and facing life in prison as a habitual offender. That’s how the wonderful legal system works in our country and why people like Lindsay would have to commit capital murder before they’d actually go to prison. Even that isn’t a guarentee that she’d go to prison…look at O.J. He finally went to jail when he ran out of money…and it surely wasn’t for murder!

    She’ll never go to jail until the money runs out.

    Garbage. Instead of actually trying to use her talent (what is left of it), she takes the easy road of plastic surgery, playboy, theft, etc. She doesn’t even seem to realize she’s hit rock bottom and then some. When she is on the cover of any mag, lately, it’s a joke. Knock your brain back into the real world girl!!!

    I am soo sick of this media smut and the Kar”trash”ians. They need to give Lohan more than 90 minutes in jail and 10 minutes of community service. She is obviously not taking this punishment charade seriously.

    Its kind of funny that 2 hollywood young ladies are in the same boat at this time. Lohan & Amanda Bynes. They should be treated like anyone else that would be in her cituation. She needs to serve some jail time for here crimes. This just might straighten up her little Imature ass…

    yep she’s got the money to pay off them.she will be one of the ones you read about when she kills someone or her self.hollywood and money = death when you cant handle yourself.

    She should serve some time. the average person would be put under the jailhouse for a while for doin that on probation. Ans hell yeah shes on pills. i been thinking she was usuing pills anyway, because she always looks like she’s high. It was only a matter of time before everyone found out. Even if they are prescribed to her, she’s still a stupid addict. She needs to learn a lesson.

    If she were just another person on the street she would have been locked up at her first offense. Lets worry about the terrible thing that has happened to the good people of Sandy and try to help them. She doesn’t even deserve anything except time in jail. May God watch over and help the victims of Sandy.

    She won’t serve any time for this at all. Move along, people. Nothing to see here.

    Put her ass in jail in general population for a good long time. Don’t give her any more special treatment or hour long sentences.
