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.

forget who's going to play hohan in the porno version of clamyons.

who's going to play her in the lifetime movie of her funeral? pimp mama and dad will be pushing their scripts for it...scripts they've already written.

they'll want to be executive producer and director and of course star in them as well.

talk about posing now for close-ups later on...those two work on those looks daily.

i think instead of hohan's friends sending flowers they should send one of those bottle trees made from hohan's own private reserve.

When this idiot is out getting trained by a band, is stealing from her friends or just humiliating herself, I say, "whatever". .. but when she is out there driving after drinking alcohol, well, she's just endangering us all. . and should pay the price JAIL JAIL JAIL just like the rest of us. . ..she should be sent to JAIL for at least a YEAR. . .

Yeah, 60 days of rehab that Lindsay will wiggle out of somehow too....that oughta teach her, huh? Who's letting her kill herself faster...she abusing her body like she does, or the legal system that doesn't even slap her on the wrist when she NEEDS to be PUNISHED like EVERY OTHER CITIZEN would be if they had done what she has done!! Tell me if I or anyone of my peers had just even been pulled over, especially with alcohol on our breath, would have even been allowed to leave the scene...much less the light of day outside a jail cell for at least a year!!

Well my guess was 62 days in jail, but this is much worse. 60 days in rehab to start, then all the other CS and AA BS. Maybe more probation, and now the whole world knows that the queen of sobriety was pounding a few on her way to work. Wow.


Back under the sobriety microscope for Lindsay.

It seems obvious that...

1) They have no viable evidence that she was impaired at the time of the accident. Even worse, an Officer overseen by his Sergeant actually investigated her sobriety and found no signs of impairment. Drats!

2) Prosecutors absolutely believe she was impaired. But after 6 months of reviewing the case they know the only charge they can get a conviction on is lying/obstructing.

3) Prosecutors also now they have a hammer to lord over her because the case has triggered a VOP in her other case, for which she could face substantial jail time if they play hardball with her.

So they are offering her a deal. We know you were impaired. We can't prove it. Do rehab, AA, probation, fines, and it'll be a package deal and we will go very easy on the VOP. Refuse and go to trial... you'll only get probation or a short stink in jail, but then we are gonna hammer you on the VOP and send you away for months. That is the game they are playing.

Will be interesting to see if the delaying and switch to Heller will result in a better or worse pleas deal then the one Holly arrived at before being fired / leaving. She has to accept a plea deal. She can't possibly be fool enough to go to trial given the cir***stances. She will be convicted and they will go hammer her for VOP.

OMG. SO SICK OF THIS ****ING SKANK. SHE IS A COMPLETE WAIST. I HOPE THEY GIVE HER JAIL AND NOTHING ELSE. THIS WHOLE THING IS SO MESSED UP. HEY RETARDED JUDGES AND PROSICUTORS. REHAB WILL NOT WORK. JAIL WILL IF ITS FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME. IT'S LIKE THEY ARE SMALL CHILDREN. FIGURE IT OUT. NOTHING HAS WORKED. SHE NEEDS STRAIGHT JAIL AND NO EARLY RELEASE. DUH. I CAN'T WAIT TIL THE CITY GETS SUED FOR NOT PUNISHING HER PROPERLY AFTER SHE KILLS SOMEONE. IDIOTS.

what Part of they are not going after a DUI do these Idiots not understand..that Vodka under her Burned bridge..It would have already been a DUI..they are going after a VOP and 3 other counts..
the question is why does she need rehab if she was sober? it should be only jail involved..you cant have her cake and eat it too

Unbelieveable! She smelled like booze, but we didn't do anything...even after it was told by witnesses at the scene she was driving and booze was found outside of the car. Not to mention she has a record for such behaviour. I just smh at the PCH inforcement!! You failed!
