Lindsay Lohan Faces 4 Charges Today On Both Coasts
It was just a few weeks ago that Lindsay Lohan told "Good Morning America," "I'm in a great place." But that was then, this is now.Today Lohan has the distinction of facing 4 charges on both coasts on the same day, TMZ reports. That would be bad for anyone, but it's especially bad for Lohan who is still on probation for her past transgressions.
The latest incident that has brought her more legal scrutiny happened early this morning in New York. After going to a Bieber concert and hitting the bars, Lohan is accused of getting into a scuffle with a woman and punching her. She could face an assault charge in the incident.
Meanwhile, on the west coast, Lohan is facing charges related to a crash where she slammed into a tractor-trailer on PCH. Authorities say that she lied to police and told them that her assistant was driving when it was actually LiLo behind the wheel. For that, TMZ reports that the Santa Monica City Attorney filed three charges against her.
Lohan is being charged with giving false information to an officer (which can be punished by up to 6 months in jail). The second charge is for obstructing or resisting an officer (which can be punished by a year in jail). And finally, she could face reckless driving charges (which can be punished with 90 days in jail).
It looks like Lohan is that much closer to having her probation revoked and serving some time in jail.
