Lindsay Lohan

Hotel Owner BFF Arrested

Coke, Pot, Heroin, Pills

4/4/2013 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Multi-millionaire hotel owner Vikram Chatwal -- who's been close with Lindsay Lohan since 2011 -- has been arrested in Florida ... TMZ has learned ... after cops say he tried to get on a plane with cocaine, weed, heroin and various prescription pills.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, 41-year-old Chatwal was busted on April 2 at the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport when the TSA discovered an arsenal of drugs hidden on his person, in his crotch and in his bag.

Chatwal was booked on one count of trafficking (6 grams of heroin) and seven counts of possession ... including cocaine, buprenorphine (an opioid), clonazepam (a sedative), alprazolam (Xanax) and lorazepam (muscle relaxants), ketamine (a horse tranquilizer) and weed.

According to the police report, Chatwal admitted to cops that he illegally purchased and possessed the drugs.

Chatwal owns the Dream Hotel in NYC ... one of Lindsay Lohan's favorite spots. You'll recall, Lindsay was arrested following an alleged hit-and-run outside the hotel last year. Prosecutors subsequently dropped the charges due to lack of evidence.

Lindsay and Chatwal were romantically linked the year before when pics surfaced of them kissing inside Chatwal's apartment.

We reached out to Chatwal's people -- so far, no word back.

Nicole--I get that you are a stan--(not why someone becames a stan in general or of LL specifically but whatever.) but I don't understand your attitude towards her behavior.

You posted "If he gets convicted Lindsay can't technically be spotted with him until 2014. Hope it drags out. Florida is strict." So, the subject of your idolatry has a drug and alcohol problem. Her friend is the subject of a drug bust. A caring person would be glad that there would be one less bad influence in Lindsay's life rather than hoping that legal issues are drawn out.

Its obvious Lilo is an addict...I know first hand what an addict goes through and it is a sad, demoralizing way to live. In my opinion she assocites with these kind of folks for only one reason. DOPE. There is no telling what a "favors" she is doing to obtain her next fix. Without help I feel we will all b reading her obituary sooner than latef.

From Milo on ROL

“Even worse, after communicating with Dina she has the nerve to actually defend Vikram. Birds of a feather flock together!”

Aslo whether of not how we feel about her she is someone's daughter, sister and friend. I would just like to ask for those who believe in something greater than themselves to pray for her so she maybe can get her life straight and find something that makes her life worth living other than drugs.

OK, I haven't read past page 1 of the comments yet, but I gotta ask.... Is it just me, or does it sound like he was 'stocking' up for Lindsay's return to NY, lol? Her pink purse doesn't just refill itself!
