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.

How is this guy still alive? It's amazing what the human body can endure. Just sad that so many of us lead such healthy lives, and end up with something like cancer, while this guy is still breathing.

Perfect example of why rich successful men should never give money to an idiot son. Probably too gacked to hide his drugs or to even make up a plausible story..
.
Florida is not the kind of state that is kind to it's drug dealers and addicts. It is also the kind of state that will not be very willing to give this rich creep easy bail. They will make his bail incredibly high, with lots of restrictions, or maybe even deny it totally.
.
In a case like this there really can only be one answer to his plight. MARK HELLER esq., ATTORNEY AT LAW!!!!!!!!!!
.
BTW Vicki, enjoy the lunch - I hear that today it's a baloney sandwich, bug juice, and canned fruit cup. Oh wait, that's lunch EVERYDAY!!!!!!!!
.
I guess he won't be buying Lohan any expensive shoes for a while.

BWAHAHAHAHHAhahahahahahahaahahha
