Lindsay Lohan
's past may come back to haunt her when she goes to trial next week for allegedly lying to cops after her car accident ... because TMZ has learned, prosecutors will attempt to introduce evidence she's done exactly the same thing twice before.

Law enforcement sources directly connected to the case tell TMZ ... prosecutors are convinced that Lindsay has an M.O. when she gets into trouble on the road -- telling cops she wasn't driving, even though she was.

Lindsay is being prosecuted for allegedly telling cops she was a passenger in the Porsche that crashed into a truck last June on Pacific Coast Highway when in fact she was the driver.

We've learned prosecutors want the jury to hear about 2 prior incidents:

1. May, 2007 : Lindsay was busted in Bev Hills for driving under the influence after her Mercedes struck a curb at 5:30 AM on Sunset Blvd.  Lindsay told cops she was a passenger in the car. LIE.

2. March, 2012 : Lindsay was leaving the Sayers Club in Hollywood in her Porsche just after midnight when she allegedly struck a pedestrian and fled.  She told cops she was a passenger. LIE.

Our sources say prosecutors will attempt to introduce the 2 incidents under the law that allows evidence of "prior bad acts" that shows a pattern of misconduct.

The defense will have to put Dina, the single mother of 4, on the stand to testify that she didn't raise her children to lie and steal...

Used to be "Insane in the Membrane".


Now it's "Transient Global Amnesia"


I hear Heller and Lindsay are arguing over the best excuse. Heller wants to go old school (insane in the membrane), but Lindsay wants to try out the Jodi (I'm not a crazed monster) amnesia thing.

A thought...

The reason Tater lied about driving is because she was under the influence of probably more than one substance (alcohol for sure). While it has been reported that she tool a standing on one leg field sobriety test, I believe she skated on the breathelyzer and blood tests because she said she was not driving.


She was suspected of being under the influence...were the conclusive tests not done due to the fact that she told them she was not behind the wheel -- will the police address that in the court testimony?

Harvey thinks she's screwed with the jury. Who is that little bitch that is in love with her? Ryan? God he is so annoying. Lohan will have a few tricks up her sleeve. She will be turning tricks no doubt, but nothing to help her case.

When they were talking about Gayvin, Fan Boy Ryan said mischievously, "She'll have a couple of tricks up her sleeve." If he's insinuating Gayvin will lie and say he was driving, that would just be the cherry on top because then they nail Gayvin for perjury and Blo too if she takes the stand and says she was not. If I was male, I'd be getting a woody right about now just thinking about that scenario.

Here's the prior bad acts potential problem:


Evidence of prior bad acts by the accused will be admissible if the prosecution satisfies the judge on a balance of probabilities that, in the context of the particular case, the probative value of the evidence in relation to a specific issue outweighs its potential prejudice and thereby justifies its reception.
