Lindsay Lohan

Alcohol In Porsche

At Time of Crash

Now we know why prosecutors wanted Lindsay Lohan in lockdown rehab -- she was driving with alcohol in the car at the time of the June crash.

TMZ has obtained a copy of the police report, in which the officer says after the crash a plastic water bottle was lying a few feet from the driver's door.  The officer picked up the bottle and noticed the water was amber colored.  He smelled the liquid and says "it was an alcoholic beverage, possibly wine."

The cop says, "It was my opinion that one of the occupants ... was possibly in possession of the open container and discarded it shortly after the collision."

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... they believe the bottle was Lindsay's.

On top of that, the cop says when Lindsay arrived at the hospital, there was an odor of alcohol on her breath.

this is bullcrap and tmz know it. the bottle was NOT found in her car but in the debris the cops did tests at the hospital and she was clear. if the cops thought for one minute there was alcohol on her breath they would have charged her. gimme a break tmz stop the crap.

Open containers of alcohol in a car are illegal in the USA. This was clearly an open container - alcohol was placed in a water bottle to disguise it. Lindsay is well known for carrying such "water bottles" around so she can pretend to be sober when she's actually perpetually buzzed.

I know you think that DUI is no big deal and young people do such things (she's almost 30...) and everything is done better in Europe where they would just pat her kindly on the noggin etc- but in the USA, we lose too many children and teenagers and others to drunk drivers. Our country is far more spread out than Europe and doesn't have the mass transit available there. European drunks can stagger home on foot or catch a bus or train. American drunks drive. Americans routinely drive longer distances and more often than Europeans. Easily half the fatal traffic accidents in the US are due to drunk drivers. This is indeed a big deal here. That's why Lindsay lied about being the driver- she would have been tested on the spot and the legal and insurance consequences would have been very different.

It is disgusting that the cops did not test her for alcohol when they smell alcohol on her breath! LAPD you suck!

Did they test it for DNA? But then why waste taxpayer money on a test when Lindsay would just claim somebody else brought her bottle into the car without her knowledge.
