Lindsay Lohan

Hotel Owner BFF Arrested

Coke, Pot, Heroin, Pills

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.

OT: I don't know whether it made the national news but 2 college students got lost on Sunday while hiking in the local Orange County mountains. The second of the 2 was just found alive and helicoptered to UCI Medical Center and that's awesome news.

Lorazepam is NOT a muscle relaxant. It's used to treat anxiety and/or insomnia.

I just read two other reports about this. One said he was in a Bollywood movie alongside Amitabh Bachchan, and People Mag said he is rumored to be dating Padma Lakshmi (host of Top Chef). Didn't Padma just have a baby? WTF?

Characterizing Lindsay as being "romantically linked" with anyone or anything is a real stretch. She's more of the stray dogs fcuking on the front lawn type.
