Phillips to Cops:

Thanks for Arresting Me!

4/30/2010 1:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's one of the most remarkable turnarounds ever -- Mackenzie Phillips just had the slate wiped clean in her drug case -- and in court just moments ago, she thanked the police for putting her behind bars in the first place.


Phillips -- who was ordered to complete a drug diversion program back in 2008 -- had all charges against her dismissed.

She calls her recovery "the most rewarding time in my life ... It really just changed my life."

On her way out of court, Mackenzie had a few words of wisdom for Lindsay Lohan: "I hope she finds the strength within herself to get some help ... I had to go until I had to walk out with handcuffs on and I don't want to see that happen to her."


Mackenzie looks and sounds amazing.  Congrats!

why doesnt she want to see Lindsay in handcuffs? That is the ONLY way that crazy freak is going to get a clue.

She has done a great job of cleaning up and helping other people. She has not had an easy life. She has been a real giving soul since her arrest, which woke her up.

Listen to her Lindsay .. seriously. NA and/or AA step programs work. You have to do some serious work on yourself to get to the root of why you use. Your parents need professional help too. You're father is bat**** cuckoo for coco puffs but your mom is worse. She makes excuses for your actions. She might as well be the one to put the gun to your head and pull the trigger.

Mackenzie, I like you and all but enjoy the sobriety while it lasts. Your damaged goods and you've been using hard drugs since you were a teen. I've lost count of how many times you've been to rehab and we all know your going to use again. And BTW the next time a paparazzo asks you about someone else problems just show some class and skip the question altogether. You wouldn't have appreciated her saying as much about you to the tabloids, so why do it to her?

Good for you MacKenzie! I watched you on "Celebrity Rehab" and thought that Carrie Ann was horrible to you. She isn't ready to get help yet unfortunately. I am glad you are in a good place in your life.Congratulations.
