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."

So how is Michael taking credit for today's events. Dimzee didn't use Wohl. What law firm got screwed out of a retainer?

OPEN SEASON ON LINDSAY!

Lindsay has a bounty on her head! Imagine what a Pap will be paid for the last picture before Lindsay gets busted and goes to jail, eh? A picture of her violating parole will be GOLDEN! She takes a smoke break outside and chats with a felon by mistake, BYE BYE Lindsay!

Law Enforcement has been given unlimited power to take Lindsay down for any reason or no reason at all; Linds will be in the slammer before Coachella. Or the Sheriffs will get her there for parole violations, eh? She can’t go clubbing or hang with her old crowd. No matter how squeaky clean her new friends are they can be rousted because they are with Linds!

Anyone who thinks she got off light, just wait until Act II, the one with no recourse! She won’t even get a trial, get a ticket; go to jail. Period. And all the conditions will follow her after/if/when she gets out of jail.

If she shows up at the CM tonight, she will be in jail by morning; count on it!

I would love for Lindsay to go to Coachella, and for a Policeman/woman to be standing at the exit, and search and drug/alcohol test Lindsay right then and there. She agreed to be searched/tested at any time at the authorities whim!

I wish she would do her 90 lock-down in Dubai. Chances are good we'll never here the name Dimzee Lowhand again.

it is time you were fied for being psychotic. Lindsay is actually smarter than u. She is a psychopath - she played you and your trust and emotions - you just need medication as a psychopathic and as long as you keep it up YOU WILL BE OVER YOUR CURRENT EPISODE

Now here's the plan. Everyone of us should try to befriend Lindsay. Invite her for a fun girls night out. offer to supply everything. Get her really high and also very drunk. Wind her up and let her go, then call the cops. But first take lots and lots of pictures. You never know when you might need some extra cash.

indsay 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.

I have a question that just popped into my head. This judge Dabney set the agreement for the plea. When she gets back to NYC then picks a LOCKDOWN REHAB does her lawyer have to call Cali, and Dabney and get an OKAY on the facility? I mean, how the HELL is Cali justice supposed to know what's best in NY? Hell, if Smeggy and company decided on Merrick LOCKDOWN is that considered okay? (ignore that last question, I was being sarcastic LOL).
