Lawyer's Frantic Move to Save Lindsay

7/25/2007 3:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan and Blair BerkTMZ has learned that in the hours before Lindsay Lohan was busted for DUI, her lawyer knew she was in trouble and was desperately trying to find her.

Sources say last Sunday, just before midnight, mega-lawyer Blair Berk got an ominous signal. The signal came from the SCRAM device that Lindsay agreed to wear on her ankle. The device tests for alcohol use and sounds an alarm to a designated person when alcohol is detected. We've learned that Berk was the designee.

As soon as Berk learned there was a problem, she frantically tried to locate Lindsay. But time ran out before Berk could stop the runaway train wreck. Less than two hours after the SCRAM device signaled, Lindsay was in custody.

TMZ Is whoever is writing these "articles" a little obsessed? It seems someone has a fascination with lindsay, britt and paris. A real story is one thing but, does anyone care that brittney went shopping, paris goes to taco bell? I think if you could strap a mic to their ass to see when they fart you would do it. Who is worse the one that reads about someone buying a dog or the one that writes it. Is anyone on the staff there under the age of 13?

Maybe these monitor devises should come with a GPS unit as well, that way if someone gets in trouble they can be found quicky and hopfully avoid putting themselves and others in danger. She is trobled rich little brat, send her to jail where she might understand her problems, and not a short in/out stint like Paris, I'm talking about 6 months to a year at least.

I don't buy it, she's on Lindsay's payroll, they are now just trying to do damage control and pretending that SOMEBODY was actually monitoring that anklet, That way they can lie in court and say it was the first time she's been drunk since getting out of rehab.

Instead of family or friends, Lindsay opted to trust her lawyer. It's sad that the people in her life are either losers or messes, themselves. I hope, as part of her recovery, she finds good, genuine people she can trust. Her scenario reminds me of Robert Downey Jr. I wish her the very best. I think she's a talented girl. Thankfully, she didn't physically hurt anyone behind the wheel.

Her lawyer was the person ankle bracelet notified...give me a break. Mine went to court, guess there is special treatment in California. Her lawyer and Judges are what we call "ENABLERS" and if they continue...so will she. Take this from someone who's been there, done that and blessed to be clean and sober today.
