Lindsay May Dodge the World's Biggest Bullet

8/22/2007 11:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay LohanLaw enforcement sources tell TMZ there is a "strong possibility" the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office will NOT file felony charges against Lindsay Lohan in connection with her two DUI arrests.

We're told charges may be filed tomorrow, and the D.A. is leaning toward rejecting three possible felonies. Sources say the D.A. almost certainly will not file cocaine charges in connection with her DUI bust Memorial Day weekend in Beverly Hills.

As for her July 24 arrest in Santa Monica, the D.A. could charge her with felony cocaine possession, and bringing cocaine into a correctional facility -- also a felony. But we're told that the D.A. is inclined not to file those felony charges either.

That basically leaves misdemeanor DUI charges for both incidents. If Lohan is found guilty of both, she'd have to serve a minimum of four days in jail, and that beats prison, baby!

And we're told Lohan's mega-lawyer Blair Berk and prosecutors have been talking a lot and that spells a possible plea bargain.

Here's what's for sure: If Lohan is not charged with a felony, she is not required to attend Friday's arraignment. If that's the case, put money on it -- Lindsay will be a no-show.





Oprah Subpoenaed in Black Profiling Case


Oprah Winfrey, Condi Rice, and Colin Powell are among a host of A-list celebs who were just subpoenaed in a racial profiling case in a Michigan Federal Court.
Click to read!
TMZ obtained court documents filed yesterday, which "commands" that a spectacular list of celebrities appear for depositions in a lawsuit filed by one Jerome Almon, who alleges that Canada has launched an attack on U.S. black rappers. The lawsuit claims Canadaian officals blame rappers for both increased gangs and gun violence in Toronto and Vancouver, and holds up black rappers at the border.

The list goes on to include Paris Hilton, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Snoop Dogg, DMX, Diddy, Jenna Jameson, Jay Z, 50 Cent, Eminem, Kobe Bryant, Spike Lee, Tom Sizemore, Martha Stewart and Heidi Fleiss. Mr. Almon, CEO of MurderCap Records, tells TMZ, "The white celebrities have been directed to appear, in order to show the hypocritical nature of Canadian policy toward rappers. Some of the white celebrities have far worse records than these rappers, but are still allowed to enter Canada with the red carpet rolled out."

Trip to Motor City ... everybody!

Bill Murray: Marinated Swedish Meatball?


Cinderella story. Outta nowhere ... Bill Murray could face a drunk driving charge ... in Sweden! Skal! Police spotted Murray cruising around downtown Stockholm in a -- wait for it -- golf cart!

Swedish cops say they stopped the 56-year-old Murray in the slow-moving vehicle and noticed the smell of alcohol on his breath. "He refused to blow in the (breath test) instrument, citing American legislation," the police told the AP. "So we applied the old method -- a blood test. It will take 14 days before the results are in." In the meantime, enjoy the lutefisk!

Murray, who had been at a golf tournament in Sweden, signed a document admitting that he was driving under the influence, and agreed to let a police officer plead guilty for him if the Celebrity Mugshots -- click to launchcase goes to court (Yes judge, right away judge!).

Hmm ... we thought that in Sweden you weren't legally drunk until your eyes rolled to the back of your head. Who knew?

A rep for Murray did not immediately return a call for comment.



Vida's Meter Maid Gets Spanked


TMZ has learned that the "meter maid" who asked for a naked photo of bikini model Vida Guerra in return for leniency on her parking ticket has been officially suspended. Not so lovely!
Vida and the Meter Maid
According to Parking Enforcement Manager Eric Ruiz, officer L. Salgado will not be patrolling the sidewalks while the City conducts an official investigation into the incident. Furthermore, buzz inside the station is that Salgado, who is said to be 18 or 19-years-old, will be fired.

TMZ caught the whole thing on tape over the weekend, showing that after ticketing Guerra, Salgado was heard telling Vida's friend, "You got a naked picture of her, we make the price stay right."

That's the ticket!

Vince Vaughn -- Slippery When Wet!


Vince Vaughn: Click to watchVince Vaughn just couldn't keep his head above water yesterday -- finding it nearly impossible to keep his balance on a Jet Ski in the rough sea.

The plumping actor was filmed in the waters off Malibu, just down the beach from ex Jennifer Aniston's house ... where he attempted to thrust himself onto a wave rider not once, but twice -- knocking it over and slipping off each time. Vaughn overboard!

Flabulous -- click to launchThird time was the charm for slippery Vinnie, and he was eventually ferried from the beach to a waiting boat, as a crowd on the sand cheered his successful mounting. And who wouldn't?

I find it humorous in this fast pasted world we as a society are so enamored with high profile individuals, who not unlike ourselves are human and thus fallible. I write this with the greatest admiration for the media and as a Graduate student studying leadership and grateful for the moments in where I can loose myself in the tabloid gossip articles.

As my friends tell me, I missed my calling "I should have been an actress" no pun intended.

Many thanks

If L Lohan does not get charged for a felony, it truly shows special treatment to celebrities -- what a disgrace.
If this were me, I would be jailed and the key given away.

i think its rediculous that she is just getting a slap on the hand if she had hit someone let alone killed someone while she was high and drunk what would be the punishment then ....??? so why not nip it in the bud now and show her what she is doing is wrong and make her own up to what she has done. She should be charged just like anyone else and have to serve the time no different than me or you would have to..

She wouldn't go to prison as the headline states, she would go to jail, like Paris. Jail is not prison. If you or I committed the felonies that Lohan has we would be in jail guaranteed.

Now there, need to be hateful. Does that make you more or less the same character as the people you criticize?

Patty Thomas-Main, you say you have the greatest admiration for the media and that you are a graduate student. You are not giving a good name to college graduates when you confuse a word so elementary as "lose" with "loose". Secondly, anyone that has any admiration for the media shows their vast ignorance of the #1 propaganda-pushing tyrants in America.

If my children did the same they'd be in jail, why not Lohan. The problem is the law enforcement, different rules for different people. People, when you get charged with DUI or cocaine, teld them you want the same treatment as Lohan! America, SPEAK UP!
