Dina Lohan Pleads Guilty to DWI

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Drunk, Legal Issues,

Dina LohanLindsay Lohan's mother has been ordered to perform 100 hours of community service.

Dina Lohan pled guilty in court in Long Island, New York on Tuesday morning to Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and speeding last September. Along with her community service, Dina must attend a mandatory drinking and driving program, a victim impact panel, and pay the necessary fines and fees.

The 51 year old is also expected to have her license revoked and an interlock device will be installed in her car, according to gossip website TMZ.com. The Lindsay star was initially arrested for driving at "a speed of 77 mph in a 55mph zone" and police then discovered her blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit.

Shortly afterwards, her lawyer Mark Heller attempted to blame the paparazzi for the incident. "It is the professional opinion, as stated here by the evaluator, that the circumstances leading to Dina's arrest were largely impacted by ongoing daily stresses caused by you folks, the paparazzi, media attention and distorted tabloid character profiles," he said.

Chris PineChris Pine has pleaded guilty to drink driving.

The Star Trek actor was fined $93 and had his driver's license suspended for six months during a court hearing at the Ashburton district court in New Zealand today. Chris' lawyer, Marilyn Gilchrist, had applied for the star to be discharged without conviction after claiming he had already suffered emotionally and professionally because of the worldwide negative coverage of his crime. The judge, Joanna Maze, said she accepted Chris was "entirely remorseful" of his actions as he had pleaded guilty to the charge at the earliest opportunity and had complied with the police.

The 33-year-old star was stopped by officers in a "routine operation" in Methven, Canterbury, New Zealand, on March 1 and was arrested after tests revealed his blood-alcohol level was 0.11 per cent, which is over New Zealand's legal limit of 0.08 per cent.

Chris was in the country filming Z for Zachariah and had been out celebrating the end of the shoot, the night before he was arrested.
