Lindsay Lohan is dodgier than 2 cars meeting behind a high school at 2am during a snow storm, so it’s no surprise that her lawyer, Mark Heller, would fall right in line. We know she finally took the plea deal at the eleventh hour and is going to rehab for 90 days (ha, let’s see how long that lasts!) but did you also know that Heller tried to get Lindsay’s former assistant to lie on the stand, if it came to that?
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the Santa Monica City Attorney will be launching an investigation and will interview Lohan’s ex-assistant Gavin Doyle tomorrow in the presence of police.
We’re told … prosecutors believe Heller may have approached Gavin and tried to get him to admit that he was the one driving the vehicle when Lohan’s Porsche crashed into a big rig on Pacific Coast Highway last summer.
TMZ has learned Gavin has told multiple people about the alleged witness tampering … including an officer of the court.
As for Heller, he has strongly stated that any accusation of witness tampering on his part is “crazy.”
Huh, if by “crazy” you mean “something I would totally do for my drug-addicted client who is paying me with checks with Charlie Sheen’s name on them”, then yes, it’s really crazy! Considering Lindsay barely even made it to court at all and when she did, she looked like she’d been up for three days smoking meth, I don’t doubt at all that Heller realised the reality of the situation was pretty dire.
