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.

She should have her own reality show, this is crazy!! It's something new every day and it's bad for her. All the chances and breaks she's gotten and she still is buddies with a druggie. So many talented drug free girls are out there who will never get a chance and this one gets all the breaks. It's ridiculous. This guy is her good friend and you see what he's carrying. I wish someone good would get a chance to have one of the breaks she's had.

Ahaaaa - it's now just dawning on me. I am sure this is why Lohan stayed an extra couple of days in Brazil. Knowing that she would now have to pay some dealer for her usual crack n' smack - Lohan arranged a photo op for probably 10 grand so when she gets back to NY she can "afford" her drugs.
Someone should report her bikini set-up to the IRS stat. Lohan was paid for those photos and should be paying taxes on the take. If the IRS can throw Martha Stewart in prison (and that woman had billion$ at that time) surely they can investigate Lohan. I would love to see Lohan do time in a federal pen.

so if he intentionally got caught is that saying he'd rather go to prison on drugs charges than be around and pay HOhan's way?

i kinda hate to see one of her sources for drugs dry up. she has no regard for life. she's screwing hers into the ground pdq and thinks it's funny. give her all the drugs and alcohol she wants so she can screw herself 6 feet down faster.

Want to bet Lohan will have more bruises on her legs from punching herself flipping out.

Oh shyt, I got to get a new sugar daddy/drug dealer. Ok hold on, wait a second, think, Who haven't I burned... Oh shyt I'm screwed.

Poor baby.
