Lindsay Lohan's attorney Mark Heller is in the crosshairs of a possible witness tampering investigation ... after allegations surfaced that he tried to manipulate Lindsay's former assistant into lying on the stand ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the Santa Monica City Attorney will be launching an investigation and will interview Lohan's ex-assistant Gavin Doyle tomorrow in the presence of police.

We're told ... prosecutors believe Heller may have approached Gavin and tried to get him to admit that he was the one driving the vehicle when Lohan's Porsche crashed into a big rig on Pacific Coast Highway last summer.

TMZ has learned Gavin has told multiple people about the alleged witness tampering ... including an officer of the court.

As for Heller, he has strongly stated that any accusation of witness tampering on his part is "crazy."

Well, I must have been a bad boy cause judge Santa scrooged me out of my early Christmas gift. Oh well, it was worth taking the day off to show up at ye ol' LAX courthouse this morning to see her show up. What really made it worth it was watching MiLo tee off on Heller post court press conf. Oh, BTW..I used a kazoo for my duck call cause the sporting goods stores weren't open yet. I think i was the only one who qwaked. I still dont know what thats all about but it sounded fun so I did it

And now dummy Heller is getting grief for his involvement with Lindsay!


Why do people try to help her or risk becoming involved with her? I am sure she will cause MAJOR drama at whatever treatment facility deals with her. Drama, non payment, smack talk. Why bother?

OK this may have been covered- I haven't read all the way back.
.
Everyone is yelling about how can there be rehab when the lying to cops didn't involve alcohol.
.
Heller tried to get the medical evidence excluded.
.
Prosecutors were adamant about rehab.
.
Lilo takes a deal she absolutely hates.
.
One would think that there was evidence of alcohol in her system and she didn't want it known she was drinking on the job.
.
Connect the dots.

I think this admission of guilt and 90 day lockdown will put the nail in the coffin of her career. No one is going to hire her now, and who is going to take a chance on her after all this. It's going to take a lot to get it back on track, and I don't think she has it in her.

BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!
ilg, I'm sure you and others are on the same train, but this will actually help Lindsay and boost her comeback. She will complete this in a few months and look really good and smile wide and then????? This could be Lindsay's moment of truth. I could be wrong, but I predicted movies and big screen time and haters said NO!!!! Will I be right again, or wrong??? Imagine September. Lindsay is clean and sober and a HUGE disappointment to haters because she looks and feels great and is not in trouble. Gotti is kicking in. Lindsay is hired. The Canyons did ok at the BO. SM5 is big. Lindsay is not looking bad or feeling bad or acting bad. Haters are convulsing in rage. Lindsay's many fans are laughing hysterically. Lindsay's future looks NOT at all like the pathetic scenarios imagined by delusional haters. Lindsay's future is bright. Folks who really matter in Hollywood are not ignoring the talented babe. Haters could be right and I could be wrong. But haters are wrong about many, many things Lindsay Lohan. Therefore............

Lindsay Lohan Turned Down 30 Days House Arrest Deal — Refused To Wear Drug And Alcohol Testing SCRAM!
Posted on Mar 18, 2013 @ 16:17PM | By jenheger

SPLASH NEWS

During the last minute plea talks between Lindsay Lohan‘s attorney, Mark Heller and prosecutor, Terry White, Judge James Dabney offered up the possibility of a 30 day custodial sentence — which the 26-year-old could of served under house arrest — but Lohan turned it down flat because it would of meant having to wear an alcohol & drug monitoring SCRAM bracelet, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

“Judge Dabney offered the possibility of a 30 day house arrest sentence but insisted that as part of the deal Lindsay would have to wear a SCRAM bracelet which detects any consumption of alcohol or drugs,” a source close to the situation tells Radar. “Prosecutors were absolutely stunned Lohan turned down the offer, and chose instead to go to a lock down rehab for 90 days!”

As previously reported, the plea deal that was eventually agreed upon — which saw Lohan plead no contest to two misdemeanor charges of lying to cops – includes the actress undergoing 90 days of rehab in a lock down treatment center, completing 18 months of psychological counseling and serving 30 days of community service, which can be carried out in New York where Lohan is currently residing.

Despite escaping a custodial sentence, Judge James Dabney made sure Lohan understood that she was not getting off lightly — warning the bedraggled looking actress that if she violated one single term of the agreed upon plea deal, he would immediately, no hesitation, send her to jail for six months.

“I will send you to jail for six months. I will max you out, we won’t be having these conversations,” Judge Dabney vowed.

Something, the source believes, will very likely happen in the near future given Lohan’s past behavior.

“It’s only a matter of time, like days, until Lindsay violates the terms of the plea deal… guaranteed,” the source predicts. “Given Lindsay’s history when it comes to the judicial system and her lack of compliance, well, the day is coming when she will be headed to jail for a very, very long time.”
