Dina Warned About Lindsay a Long Time Ago

10/12/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dina Lohan was warned by law enforcement seven years ago that her daughter Lindsay was out of control in Hollywood, yet mama Lohan did absolutely nothing about it.

Rewind to 2003, when Lindsay was 17. Law enforcement in L.A. became aware that Lindsay had a stalker. The threat was so real ... an investigator was assigned to follow Lindsay around town to protect her and possibly bust the stalker.

But our sources say the investigator became alarmed when he saw Lindsay clubbing all over town, which made the investigator fear she was drinking and driving. Law enforcement then contacted Dina to give her the heads-up.

Dina wasn't answering her phone, so voicemail messages were left warning her of Lindsay's Hollywood antics. Dina never called back ... not even once.

A source close to Dina tells TMZ, “If law enforcement was so worried about Lindsay’s safety, why didn’t they send someone to Dina’s home to inform her?”

Wish someone would drug test Dina. I'd love to see if she tested clean. My guess is she wouldn't.

I have been saying it for a while...that Dina is Lindsay's problem, not her father. Not that Michael is a standup guy, but I honsetly think he has Lindsay's best interests at heart. Versus Dina who has the whole living through my daughters successes at heart. A perfect example is the two younger kids...look at how she allows them to think they are this amazingness!

CPS should step in and strip the younger ones away!!

Why didn't they bust her for underage drinking and bust the
bar(s) that were serving her?
Stalker or no stalker letting her drive when it was obvious she was bar hopping was really dumb.

She lived in a hotel and most of the bars double as restuarants so that underage people are allowed in.
I think she could have got a DUI anytime after 05/06

The first DUI when she damaged her Mercedes was crazy.
She had been out partying all night, was driven home and then decided to take a drive at 5am.

Was she misbehaving because the checks werent on time, and you specifically told her you wanted more money

@ 27 Nicole

The cops were following her to catch a stalker, that means plain clothes cops and in close. When they see a drink put in front of her the game is over! Restaurant or not they have to card anyone who they serve if there is any chance they are underage and at 17 she sure did not look 21! The article says this was 03, so while I go along with you about her drunk driving in 05/06 they could have stopped her drinking and driving years before she got her first DUI.

Of course, this could be another invented story by Michael to raise money for his female only rehab center or to finance his quest for a conservatorship.

Her parents are both a couple of jerks and are, of course, to blame for where their daughter is right now. OF COURSE DINA, if law enforcement leaves you a MESSAGE, MANY MESSAGES, it means NOTHING if they don't come to your house. Probably the stupidest answer I have ever heard

Let's all vote for Dina as "Mother Of The Year"! I am so glad I had the mother I did. The fact that Lindsay was living on her own at the age of 17 would really get Dina elected! LOL She is such a joke when it comes to parenting!

"Why didn't they send someone to Dina's house to inform her?" Um, DUMBASS, the person went over and beyond their job of protecting her by contacting Dina. Why the hell didn't lazy ass Dina pick up the phone and call the law enforcement person back? Dina, STFU. This is on YOU. Not even Michael this time, YOU.

Why was Lindsey living on her own in Hollywood at 17? So she could make money! Why was Lindsey still living on her own when there was a stalker following her? So she could make money!
Any loving and responsible parent would be more concerned about the well-being of her child. Instead, Dina is more concerned about the almighty dollar!
As for the police officer that followed Lindsey to protect her, he absolutely did the right thing. He did not follow Lindsey into the club so he did not actually see her drinking or might I add nor did he see her take any drugs, however, his gut feeling was that she was in over her head even then. His phone call to Dina was a courtesy call. That Dina chose to ignore it does not surprise me.
Back then Dina turned the other way so that she could live the life that she wanted on Lindsey's money. Now that Dina knows how bad things really are, and she does know, even if she denies it in interviews, Dina is afraid to be the parent that Lindsey needs because she is afraid that if she makes Lindsey upset, Lindsey might cut her off as she has done to Michael, her father, and without Lindsey, Dina has no income. And I do believe that Lindsey would indeed cut Dina out of her life completely if Dina tried to stand up to Lindsey because these people do not love each other. They don't even know what love is.

It's really sad that Ms. Lohan has just destroyed herself, but hopefully she has at least taken a look at what she once was and is trying to focus again.

But one thing, and this is kinda sad, is that voice of hers. It totally reminds me of an old smoker lady. And you CAN'T fix that! It's there to stay.

So, hopefully she's exercising, eating healthy & getting lots of rest! To get back up there, she's going to really need to work for it!
