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.

I'm tired of Billy Bush and others saying that Lindsay needs to get out of LA and back to New York, as if LA is to blame for Lindsay's behavior. Her father drank and did drugs in NEW YORK. Lindsay is following in the footsteps of her father. it has nothing to do with LA.

I will be really mad if some judge lets her leave the state without doing any jail time. She needs to go to LYNWOOD!

The assistant is now a troubled person who saint LiLo was just helping? How can a drunk cocaine addict help anyone! I thought she fired her? no no wait, she quit and left the house in discuss ( Truth ).
No oh wait Lindsay rushing to help her put on the wrong pair of jeans and walked? to help her..
I would love to hear from this assistant, Lohan's camp seems to want to discredit her for some reason hum.
The Lohan's sure find it easy to drag everyone and anyone down as they try to munipulate, twist and lie to save the not so great actress.

Wow Lindsey I see the lies continue and you still wont accept you were WRONG. Well once your put in a small Jail Cell for 6 months you can sit there and realize that LYING doesnt work anymore.

Accept that you were wrong broke the law and do your time, dont be a wuss. At least Paris accepted her fate and did her time. You should give her a call she can tell you what to expect.

LOHAN'S PEOPLE NEED TO BACK OFF AND LET HER DO THE TALKING. SHE NEEDS FOR PEOPLE TO STOP ENABLING HER. STOP! OR BURY HER!!!!!!!!!! LET HER TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR HER ACTIONS. HER BLOOD LEVEL WAS SOOOOOOOO HIGH THAT SHE PROBABLY HAS NO CLUE WHAT HAPPENED THAT NIGHT. I WOULD TEND TO BELIEVE THE POLICE.

It is so sad that her entire family is in denial. I am sure Dina put Alli up to send that e-mail and I think Lindsay is laughing right now because she thinks the world will be able to take her side. She has done many times before including two weeks ago.

Lindsey should not have been given bail. There are questions re. her whereabouts...is she in a hotel in Hollywood, with her lawyer, or rumors are floating that she's back in rehab. She is being encouraged to go to New York.

Her mother is "calling her hourly" per some reports, so I do not see how she can be in any rehab. unless it is Promises again. Now an uncle implies she may not even have been driving, after she states it wasn't her cocaine nor her pants.

Doesn't it seem that going to New York would be fleeing the jurisdiction of the court? If she is out of jail on bail, how could she be allowed to leave California and go to New York? I wouldn't think she'd be permitted to even leave Los Angeles.

Her mother seems to be a large part of Lindsey's problems and maybe she should not be calling her hourly.

Is the press trying to drum up sympathy for Lindsay by suggesting she wasn't driving.
