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?


If you believe in Brit, you can bet on Brit. Gambling website WagerWeb.com has seventeen different bets on what will happen to Britney Spears. The biggest payoffs include wagers on whether Britney will be "permanently moving out of the country" or "end up requesting asylum on Hollywood Squares."

Want better odds? You'll be safer putting your money down on Britney being arrested for DUI or coming out as a lesbian. Place your bets, y'all.

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.

It seems that there is a lot of people ready to cover up for Miss. Lohan and if the DA and Judge is of his right mind, they will find a solution to cure people of that in the future.

1) Take the whole household down for conspiracy and let them sleep in night jail for 6 month combined with community service during the day, so they all can have a lot of work therapy and learn something about giving correct testimony.

2) Put Miss. Lohan under a court appointed guardian for yet another year. No cash or credit card! Only food and clothes. She has a lot of followers who want to party with her and she can not manage having access to a lot of money. (Mrs. Spears seems to need the same kind of treatment.) She can send a list off what she need to the guarding and he or she will see to that the goods will be delivered.

Maybe 18 months of hard work and real therapy with the people who are covering up for her will help her to get out of her problems.

Seriously    

Let's see if Nicole Ritchie or Lilo get a slap on the wrist because
they're starlets (ha) and have tons of money, OR if justice really works
and they both go to jail like they are supposed to. This celebrity justice is making us look so
stupid to the rest of the world. It's a freaking joke.
Promises rehab is a very expensive joke, i.e., Britney, LIndsay, etc.

This girl is on the road to Anna Nicoleville if she does not do a 180. All these enablers are not helping her. And besides if she really was not driving she would have screamed that at the top of her lungs in the beginning. Her spinners came up with lame excuse a day later.

Dori Cooperman is a leech! She says she was not with Lyndsayon the night in question!
That is a lie........She is seen with lyndsay, wearing lydsays clothes, on the night in question.
There is more to this story.
As for Lyndsay, she is in a very bad place right now. She has got to grow up and get a grasp on her live. She needs to take responsibility for he part in this and accept it.
I tell my kids this all the time.........It dosn't matter that you are not doing anything wrong, It's who you hang around with and what they are doing. you will be protrayed in the same light.
She has alot at stake here and she will have the leeches coming out of the woodwork to find her. She has to staighten up and if that means not having any friends for awhile..sowhat!.......As she continues in her recovery , that cloud that is blinding her will slowly disapear and she will find herself. Then she will be able to decide who is right in her life and who is not

I think Dori Cooperman literally stalked lindsay.Dori was in a rehap in Arizona and checked herself out as soon as she found Lyndsay was in Promises. She checked herself into Promises and even extended her stay so she could stay with Lyndsay I really believe that Lyndsay had Dori's pants on the night in question. That was probably dor's stash. I wouldn't doubt it. But , the fact remains that it was on Lynday when she was arrested and this is what happens when you associate with the wrong people.

And what side of the family does this uncle come from? Being that Mommy & Daddy have already spoken out, lets go to the extended family for the denial and lies. It would be a hard thing for Mommy to prove in that she is in NY and LiLo is in CA. Can see her crying to the judge that "Oh, I saw my baby wasn't in the driver's seat!"

Spin, spin, spin that web of lies and no one would be credible to take the stand on her behalf. Heee, Hee, Hee.

Lindsay, you're going down for the count. Enjoy the bottom since you're a great bottomfeeder. No amount of lying, pleading or begging can save you now. It's jail baby. Sit back and enjoy it, because it's coming to a theater near you. Take responsibility for your actions and stop behaving like a slut, which you are.

Spin Spin Spin the Blowhan story...
Next we'll find out Lindsay wasn't even there that night....
She's is a guilty dirty little girl who should be sent back to NY to her father! Get her away from her crack head mother who is probably her dealer.... She is setting a horrible example for young girls everywhere!
What a LOSER!!!
