Lindsay Lohan

Hotel Owner BFF Arrested

Coke, Pot, Heroin, Pills

EXCLUSIVE

0403-VIKRAM-CHATWAL-mugshot
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.

dlisted:

41-year-old multi-millionaire hotelier Vikram Chatwal, better known as Lindsay Lohan's regular, was put into handcuffs at Florida's Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport on Tuesday when his stupid a.ss tried to get onto an airplane with a whole lot of drugs shoved into his panties and carry-on. What an amateur. LiLo has never been more embarrassed, because she can shove half of Bolivia into her Chocha Full of Grace and easily walk by a drug-sniffing dog. The drug-sniffing dog's nose doesn't even twitch, but probably because it knows to hold its breath whenever she walks by.
Both People and TMZ say that TSA found 6 grams of heroin, coke, Xanax, weed, cat tranquilizers and other pills hidden in his crotch area and bag. Vikram didn't have a prescription for any of those drugs and he later admitted that he bought all of that **** illegally. The TSA handed him over to the Broward County Sherrif's Office and he was booked on one count of trafficking and seven counts of possession.
LiLo couldn't be reached for comment, because she was too busy scratching out Vikram's number from her black book. How can she be associated with a first degree dum-dum who didn't use the fool-proof "THAT'S NOT MY CROTCH! THAT'S NOT MY BAG!" excuse? But Michael Lohan was available for comment (duh) and he told Radar that he's really happy about this:
"I hope all the money in the world can’t get him out of this one. After seeing pictures of him in the past partying with Lindsay in the Dream Hotel it scares me to think that he had ketamine in his possession. I can only image what might have or would have happened to Lindsay with a sick person like this. Even worse, after communicating with Dina she has the nerve to actually defend Vikram. Birds of a feather flock together!”
Of course White Oprah's going to defend Vikram. You never bite the hand that feeds you coke. It's kind of funny, because "I can only image what might happen to Lindsay with a sick person like this" is the same thing the nurse thought to herself when she handed over a baby LiLo to Michael Lohan.
Here's LiLo, Vikram and her other sugar daddy Domingo Zapata at some gallery show opening last year.

The Hotel Owner Lindsay Lohan Blows To Get Into Parties Got Busted With Coke. What Are The Odds?

Back in 2011, we posted shady pics of Lindsay Lohan with Dream Hotel owner Vikram Chatwal (above) hours before he escorted her into a Fashion Week party at his hotel she wasn’t invited to. The two have been seen together on and off since then, and now comes word that Vikram was picked up Tuesday for trafficking while trying to board a plane in Florida that let’s assume was headed to Brazil where someone’s broke and desperate just the way he likes it. TMZ reports:

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.

In related news, Lindsay Lohan’s search history now contains the words, “how to say cocaine buprenorphine clonazepam alprazolam lorezepam ketamine marijuana ******* your penis for in brazilish.”

I guess she can go up to a street corner in Harlem to score her drugs, how she'll pay is another question altogether.
