Past Lies Against Her

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.

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

One of two things is going to happen tomorrow. One, she'll say 'no can do' to Wohl and sign the waiver that she agrees to 'incompetent counsel' or allow Wohl on board but only to get a continuance and then promptly fire him after. The problem I see is both attorneys want to be the RINGMASTER and nobody's willing to sit second chair and be a 'silent partner'. With Blohans defiance of all things Milo, even to her own detriment at times and My Cousin Heller being hellbent on being the staaar, I don't think she'll allow Wohl. The only way I see around that is if she's THAT desperate for a stall, she agrees to take him on with the understanding of both herself and Side Show Heller its only temporary and she'll promptly fire him after the continuance is granted. If this charade plays out, I can see the judge and prosecutors absolutely FURIOUS when they come back to court sans Wohl. Either way, its GOOD TIMES for the H8TURDS . . .

Everyone's Irish today! It'd be funny if this is the one day Blo can't drink so she can be halfway coherent in court tomorrow. But, I think she'll still be sucking 'em down.

I posted some "legal mumbo jumbo" as a reply to Maddy's post (#489?)


So--In Cali we have something called the California Rules of Court (CRC) which set out administrative rules for the courts. In addition,every county has Local Rules that do the same.

I was looking at LA County's Local Rules to figure out how judges are assigned. Didn't find that BUT it appears (truly am not certain) that Heller would need to resubmit his motions which were denied--the ones that were to be heard at trial.

It then struck me that I should look at the CRC (which references the Penal Code.) So, what I posted means


1. continuances are disfavored

2. if you want a continuance you need to file a motion for one TWO court days before trial.

3. you can make a motion in less than 2 days but you better have a good reason or there shall be sanctions. And a SEPARATE HEARING will be held to sort this out.

Lindsay Lohan or Tara Reid? They are both interchangeable today!

`
This one is from a few years ago. At the time, this actress was probably still B list. In the handful of years since, she has dropped down to D list in the acting department, but she still has A list name recognition and a list of millionaires who all want to have sex with her. I'm not sure why. Anyway, she was getting paid to be at an event and got absolutely wasted. Hammered. She said she was fine though and decided everyone should go to the pool. She made everyone get naked and then she tried to break into a pen holding dolphins which guests could play with during the day. Somehow she got in and instead of being nice, the dolphins started smacking her and pushing her and she almost drowned. The thing is she had been such a horrible person all night and to the people at the event who were paying her a lot of money, that everyone did nothing to help her until she finally got her head slammed against a cage door and sunk beneath the water. They took her out and the hotel doctor checked her out. The hotel did charge her $25K for what she did to the dolphin enclosure.

Well, the next two days should be interesting if that. Probably be some pics at LAX on a late night flight. Then her showing up at the BevHills hotel. Is Dina going with her because if Dina and MlLo might be there, then the after court "press conference" should be good. Is Dina gonna be tagging along? Last I heard Blo was opening or promoting a 24hr milkshake place.

I heard on NPR this am that Irish Jews celebrate St. Patrick's Day with chicken soup with green matzah balls which sounds great to me. So I'm off to have soup and do some work. I'll catch y'all later.


Everyone have fun and stay safe!
