Was Lindsay Actually Driving the Car?

7/26/2007 9:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cops say that Lindsay Lohan was reeking of booze -- and had powder in her pocket -- when they arrested her on Tuesday for DUI, but was she actually driving the car she's accused of driving?

Her uncle, Chris Sullivan, tells the New York Post that she "may well not have been driving the car," and "hopefully the truth will come out." Sullivan calls Tarin Graham, Lindsay's former assistant embroiled in the incident, "a problem individual and Lindsay was trying to help her out," however, Sullivan offered no alternate explanation.

Meanwhile, former "Laguna Beach" star Jessica Smith -- herself a DUI chargee -- tells 24Sizzler.com that LiLo "deserves whatever punishment she gets," and that it would be "ridiculous" for Lohan to get special treatment. Speaking of treatment, Page Six conjures the curse of Cooperman -- Dori Cooperman, that is -- the New York socialite who's been conspicuously spotted partying with Tara Reid, Lizzie Grubman, and now Lindsay just before they got into various forms of trouble.

Paris Does Another Dog


Paris Hilton has plenty of dogs in her life -- and just got another one, reports People, when she snapped up a Chihuahua at Pets of Bel Air yesterday. The store is the same place where Britney Spears got her $3,000 Yorkie/hand accessory a couple weeks back. Lest we forget, Paris herself bought a Yorkie that she called Cinderella, and another Chihuahua, Tinkerbell, and used to have a kinkajou called Baby Luv, until she had to give it up.

Will Britney Spears Marry Michael Jackson?

Party Favors: Oprah Five-Times Simon ... Jacko Plays at Air & Space, Avoids Depo


Not that you might've wondered, but Oprah Winfrey is the biggest earner in TV -- again -- pulling in an estimated $260 million a year, according to TV Guide. The next highest haul? Simon Cowell, with a relatively meager $45 million. ... Michael Jackson was supposed to be in L.A. last week for depositions, but was actually in Virginia doing some sightseeing, reports FOX News. He's being sued by his former manager.

TMZ....citing the whole "ya'll" thing after EVERYTHING you write about Britney is getting REALLY old. It was funny once or twice, but now it's just plain annoying!

Here comes the lies and the coverup. Lindsay will not learn a thing about her behavior for the people that want to keep her in this place to make money off her. First you lie, then you coverup and if that doesn't work start saying the cops planted the coke on me. This will end badly and I think the world is watching Anna Nicole #2.

Wait a minute!!!!

Don't you think Lohan would have been screaming that she wasn't driving when she sent off that e-mail to Access Hollywood?

It would have been the very first thing out of her mouth.

I agree #1 - Enough with that already. Jeez Yall! And, yes, I'd bet my mother that Lindsay was driving, and drunk, and the coke was hers. Even if it wasn't (which it was), If you are just out of rehab and supposedly cleaning up your life why are you "holding" cocaine for someone, partying in clubs, drinking, and hanging out with other addicts? I've been to rehab and the 1st thing they tell when you get out is, stay in the program (aa, ca, etc) and change your "nouns" - people, places, and things.The fact is, she scammed her way out of rehab and is just going through the motions to avoid jail when she gets to court. Problem is, she has now made that evident to EVERYONE, and I doubt the judge will sentence her to rehab in place of jail, since she has proven it does not work for her. WAY TO GO LILO!!!.....dumbass

LINDSAY WASN'T DRIVING -

LINDSAY'S LAWYERS HAVE GOT 2 MAKE ONE OF THESE TWO (DUI) CHARGES GO AWAY -

or at least get one reduced to reckless driving -

this mandatory sentencing is a bitch -

Only tell the truth to ur lawyers Lindsay = they are the professional liars

"You have the right to remain silent" -

Peace

I hope that Lindsay Lohan does not wiggle her way out of this. She needs a wake-up call in the worst way! She is full of crap if she says she is innocent. Everyone says that to get out of jail when they are in trouble like Lindsay is! I hope the Judge sentences her to a very long time in jail. Maybe some serious jail time would straighten her out! I wish that she would agree to work with Dr. Phil and get cleaned up. I actually think that she is very talented. I wish she would not throw her career away like she is doing! What a waste!

So when she issued her statement she must have just forgotten that she was not driving. I thought her comments came across like a "justification" as to why she was behind the wheel.

So I guess Lindsay is calling the police who arrested her liars. Not exactly the smartest move she could make.

The first step to recovery is admitting that you are an addict and that your life is unmanageable when you use drugs and alcohol. As long as Lindsay denies her addiction and makes excuses for the things that she has done, no amount of time in rehab or jail will make any difference in her life.
