Lindsay Lohan was driving with an open container of alcohol when she crashed into a truck Friday on the Pacific Coast Highway … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Both law enforcement sources and the tow truck driver tell us … cops confiscated a plastic water bottle from the trunk of the Porsche, and our law enforcement sources tell us the bottle contained alcohol. Another law enforcement source tells us the bottle was actually in the debris field and scooped up along with other parts and placed in the trunk before it was towed away.
It’s not a violation to carry an open container in a trunk, so Lindsay is in the clear. And according to cops she had no alcohol in her system.
Nevertheless, Lindsay has been to rehab several times, so it’s not the swiftest move to roll with booze.
God. Will the f-ckery never end? The short, less involved answer is “no,” but there’s many, many ways to elaborate upon the subject. The best part of the entire thing, though, right here—Lindsay‘s apparently in so much trouble with production of ‘Liz & Dick’ that they’ve gone and hired her a private car so she doesn’t need to drive anywhere at all through the duration of filming. According to sources, Lifetime has pretty much had it with Lindsay’s crack shenanigans, and the hiring of a personal vehicle is being considered a “last ditch effort” to rein Lindsay (and her career) in:
“Lifetime will lose a ton of money if Lindsay doesn’t finish filming ‘Liz and Dick,’ plus they don’t want anything to happen to her on their watch. So it was decided it would be cheaper to get her a driver. Most contracts provide drivers for its stars in the first place, so this isn’t that unusual. This is a make-or-break moment for Lindsay. If she messes this opportunity up, she will never work again. It really is that serious and she knows it.”
Do you know how many articles about Lindsay I’ve read in the past three or more years that concluded with something like, “… If she messes this opportunity up, she will never work again. It really is that serious and she knows it.” Because UGH. Either she doesn’t know it because the meth has addled her brain so badly, or she doesn’t care that she’s only going to be offered crap Lifetime movie roles and cheaply-made pornos without the actual porno label so they don’t have to purchase the additional, expensive STD insurance rider that most pornos have to abide by. It’s embarrassing for her, and I’m sick to death of hearing “one more chance,” and “this is Lindsay’s final bid for fame,” and everything else that makes it seem like Lindsay’s this contrite little puppy dog who’s all repentant and shamed for pissing on the floor.
