Punk’d star Lindsay Lohan can’t seem to stay out of trouble, tell the truth, or keep her lies straight. And with the help of her trusty assistant, Lohan’s lies are coming back to bite her in the rear end!
According to TMZ, the Liz & Dick actress and her assistant, Gavin were in an auto accident back in June. The wreck happened on the Pacific Coast Highway when a brand new 2012 Porsche Lohan had rented slammed into the back of an 18-wheeler. When officers from the Santa Monica Police Department responded to the scene, Lindsay swore the truck driver had caused the accident when he changed lanes without signaling. But of course, the truck driver tells a different story, saying Lohan just plowed into the back of his truck.
Lohan and her assistant were transported to the hospital and Lindsay told police officers that she was not the one driving the car. But when officers interviewed Lohan’s assistant at the hospital, he called Lindsay out and told police officers that she lied. He said Lohan was in fact the one behind the wheel and he was a passenger.
The drive of the 18-wheeler and other witnesses to the accident corroborate Gavin’s claims that Lindsay was driving and he was in the passenger’s seat. The police believe Gavin and the witnesses and Lohan is facing charges for providing false statements to police officers. If found guilty, Lohan would be hit with obstruction of justice charges and because she is on probation for jewelry theft, she could end up getting a more severe punishment that may include jail time.
But that’s not the only charge Lohan may be facing. Police officers found pills in her purse and in the trunk of the car. The pills were allegedly covered by prescription but according to Business Insider, if Lindsay is hit with an obstruction of justice charge, the police may end up taking a closer look at the pills. If the pills are not covered by prescription, Lohan could also face drug related charges. If the Santa Monica City Attorney puts those two charges together, Lohan could go up the river for a while.
What do you think of Lohan’s latest drama? Do you think Lohan will get out of the charges? Or do you think she is headed for some jail time? Post a comment and tell us what you think.
