Lindsay Lohan

Smelled of Booze After Crash

New Plea Deal in Works

2/27/2013 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0226-lindsay-lohan-crash-tmzLindsay Lohan may have been drinking just before she crashed her Porsche last June on Pacific Coast Highway ... TMZ has learned. Nevertheless, prosecutors are offering her a brand new plea deal that does NOT involve jail.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... a bottle of alcohol was found next to Lindsay's Porsche, and we're told her breath smelled of alcohol. For some reason, cops did not perform a field sobriety test at the scene of the crash.

Sources tell us ... the Santa Monica City Attorney is prepared to offer Lindsay 60 days in a residential rehab facility in her lying-to-cops case -- where she said she wasn't driving the Porsche. That's 4 months less than the original offer.

In addition, we're told the City Attorney wants Lindsay to attend another set of AA meetings. And he wants her to do community service. We're told the prosecutor will let her do the community service in New York City, but -- unlike Chris Brown -- it must be closely monitored.

The wild card is that the L.A. City Attorney is also involved in the case because they're handling the jewelry heist case where Lindsay is still on probation. Up to now, we're told the L.A. City Attorney wanted jail time for the probation violation, but the prosecutor may back off that position.

The plea bargain meeting between prosecutors and Lindsay's lawyer, Mark Heller is today ... so stay tuned.

Of course Crackie was drinking; vodka is how she keeps herself hydrated.
Good luck getting her to acknowledge and put legitimate effort into clearing her charges. I think her proven track record shows that does not happen!

She's done community service and it did nothing to change her behavior. They need to stop making deals with her. If Lindsay kills someone the next time she's out driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol it's just as the LA City Attorney's fault as it is hers. She needs harsh consequences not deals!

I am off to physical therapy-so I am going to pop a few Valiums-which I have a prescription for so it is OK to take while driving-I will fill my water bottle with Vodka and off I am to drive my car. Right enablers? I am not doing anything wrong-I learned to drive at Dina's driving school of Merrick-that woman is a saint she has taught me so much and all from the privacy of her home or should I say University. See you all later-Bear if you are still there-behave yourself.

TMZ once again is completely wrong..........the legal eagles, butt crack Mike, Harvey and the wee ho boyz said LiLO was crazy not to accept the offer of six months in rehab......WRONG.......it's either going to be three hours in jail and thirty days house party arrest or thirty days in rehab...

LA might just want to get rid of Lindsay's PITA lawyer. The sooner this is settled the sooner she can be the problem of NYC!

Who cares what evidence is against her. It's not like she will be punished for anything she does.

Wow, everybody in Hollywood is seeing Lindsay once again connected to booze. Seems she cannot get through a single day of her life without booze. She ws shooting her "comeback" movie and drinking in the morning? Wow.

So TMZ...Do police usually not give a sobriety test and breathalizer after an accident in which the driver smells of alcohol, bottles of prescription drugs are scattered in the debris field, a bottle with alcohol is also in the debris field and the suspect is on probation and has a history of DUI's........NOT.....!!!!! BS......pure horse crap from TMZ.....

this story is such b.s. The last time Shawn was going to set up a plea deal, idiot said she wasn't going to rehab. Why the hell do you idiots keep giving this other trash tard these breaks??? She never learns and repeats her errors. She's either gonna hurt someone else of herself eventually. Mark my words.

The VOP is enough to arrest her..they have already revoked her probation..so just move forward with the VOP, then when she is out of jail put her on Trial for the 3 other crimes..

TMZ did not say she was drunk. They said she smelled of alcohol. All this means is that she was driving and drinking.
