Last Updated: 72 days ago
HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - Lindsay Lohan's mother is due in suburban New York court to answer drunken driving charges.
State police say 50-year-old Dina Lohan was stopped earlier this month allegedly speeding on a Long Island parkway.
A breath test showed the mother of the troubled film actress had a blood-alcohol level that was more than double New York's legal limit of 0.08 percent.
She was issued tickets for DWI and speeding and ordered to appear in court on Tuesday.
Dina Lohan's lawyer says his client is a first-time offender and he expected she would be treated fairly by the court.
The arrest comes just months after her daughter completed her latest stint in rehab.
Lindsay Lohan was spotted by photographers at her mother's Merrick, Long Island, home following Dina Lohan's arrest.
