According to People.com Lindsay Lohan was released from house arrest Wednesday and wasted no time hitting the party circuit in Hollywood, including the Lexington Social House, to celebrate her freedom. Wednesday night was her first time out since her 35 day home confinement began for pleading to a misdemeanor charge of theft.
Lindsay Lohan, an American actress, pop singer and model, is best known for her popular movie roles in Mean Girls, Freaky Friday and the Parent Trap. She as had runs with the law since 2007 when her movie career was derailed with two DUI arrests and three visits to an alcohol rehabilitation facility. Since then she has been arrested and charged with theft and served time under house arrest.
According to People Magazine, onlookers report she seemed to be “in a good mood” and “happy to be free and celebrating with her friends”. Her friends included Lyndsy Fonseca and Emile Hirsch, all of which enjoyed cocktails together.
Lohan’s probation does not preclude her from consuming alcohol, although she will remain on probation for her DUI cases. She does not have to take alcohol or random drug tests anymore, and she will have her next progress review on July 21.
Hopefully Lindsey Lohan’s illegal DUI activities are behind her and she has learned from her past mistakes. If she is arrested in California for her third DUI she could face very serious DUI charges including the following:
• Jail or prison time
• Felony DUI
• Heavy DUI fines
• Suspension of a driver’s license
• Installation of an ignition interlock device
• Alcohol and drug education classes
It is illegal in California to drive with a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or higher. It is also illegal for a person who is addicted to the use of any drug to drive a vehicle. Drivers of commercial vehicle are also not allowed to operate a motorized vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.04% or higher.
What Can a DUI Lawyer do for you?
DUI lawyers know how to negotiate with the District Attorney and may be able to get your DUI charges reduced. They also may be able to help you move on with your life after the DUI arrest or clear your driving record.
If historical behavior is any indication of future behavior, we will probably see Lohan back in the news. Hopefully, she does not injure or kill someone in a DUI accident.
Driving under the influence is a problem which lawmakers and powerful lobbying groups have been fighting for many years. Increased DUI penalties have made it a very serious crime. Whether you have been injured by a drunk driver or you have been charged with a California DUI, DUI lawyers can help. Do not let a DUI ruin your life….or your movie career.
