Within one year she has done two trips to rehab for treatment of achohol abuse, now this 21-year old Hollywood party girl, model and actress is upto her neck with legal troubles. While her supporters sympathise with her, others feel that she should go to jail to learn her lesson and come to back to sobriety through treatment.
Lindsay Lohan was arrested early on Tuesday in Santa Monica, California, and released on bail for investigation of misdemeanour driving under the influence and with a suspended license, and felony cocaine possession.
“I am innocent... did not do drugs they’re not mine. I was almost hit by my assistant Tarin’s mom I appreciate everyone giving me my privacy,” Lohan wrote in an e-mail to Access Hollywood host Billy Bush, the show reported on its web site on Tuesday night.
Lindsay Lohan has joined a long list of young Hollywood celebrities who have battled alchohol and substance abuse. Many have recoverd through rehab and are enjoying sucessful careers while others died young feeding a deadly addiction.
Lohan's second DUI(driving under influence) has comes about while awaiting a conviction for her first charge of drunk driving. Again she is charged with drunk driving and carrying cocaine in her pocket.
David Deitch, an addiction specialist for more than 40 years and director of Phoenix House, a national nonprofit provider of substance-abuse treatments, said the glitter and glamour of Hollywood could be partly to blame. “That life is all about the excitement, drama and peak performance followed by a letdown that gets medicated with entertainment and medication,” he said.
