Stay tuned for the 'apology letter to all my fans' that will soon follow.

File that lawsuit, I am Lindsay Lohan!    

He is a celeb, nothing will happen to him. This is the Lindsay effect for celeb justice, the law do not apply to them. He will just admit to having a problem which stems from his "sexual abuse as a child" which hunts him to this date, check himself to rehab and write a "tell all" autobio of his life. win win for him.

When he was DWTS he talked of how his mother worked so hard and how he wanted his mother to be proud. I wonder if his mama is proud of him now. GET A DRIVER! If you want to be stupid do it in another way and don't risk the lives of others because you THINK you are sober enough to drive!

There should be harsher penalties for this kind of ignorance. Someone said on here he didn't look that drunk? Whether they're drunk or not isn't tested on their looks... Someone needs to have an example made of them.
