I don’t think Lindsay Lohan could have crafted a more thorough destruction of her reputation and career even if she’d consulted with Michael Richards beforehand.
Remember the two other passengers in Lindsay’s car during the chase? TMZ sat them down for an interview, and they had quite a story to tell.
Apparently the evening began at a party in Malibu, where Lindsay was never without a drink, and was doing shots with people and generally getting retarded. Then her assistant, Tarin Graham, began fighting with her boyfriend, Dan Regan, outside the party. Lindsay went outside and screamed at her to shut up, at which point the assistant quit and got in her car to drive away. Three of Dan Regan’s friends were in their white GMC Denali outside the party. Lindsay reached in through the window, grabbed the keys and commandeered the vehicle.

So all three people in the car are immediately concerned that Linday’s going to kill them in this vehicle. One of them jumps out of the car, Lindsay runs over his foot, and keeps driving. She chases Tarin south down PCH at 100 mph — including making several U-turns as Tarin tries to lose them — and into Santa Monica, at which point she loses Tarin after running several red lights in the process. Lindsay assumes that they’re headed toward Tarin’s mother’s house, and she arrives there just as Tarin’s mother was pulling into the driveway. The mother — who probably wasn’t up on the backstory here and didn’t know that it was Lindsay behind the wheel — freaked out and pulled out of the driveway and headed to the police station. The other two passengers warned Lindsay that’s where she was headed, but Linds responded with “I’m a celebrity. I’m not going to get in trouble.”
The cars stopped near the police station, and police vehicles pulled up. When Lindsay was asked for her side of the story, she responded that “I wasn’t driving. The black kid was driving.” Cute, Lindsay.
When taking her field sobriety test, Lindsay nearly fell over.
