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.

Looked up Florida's drug law, just for the six grams of Heroin, and it looks like he won't be buying Lohan any shoes for a while.
.
(c)1. Any person who knowingly sells, purchases, manufactures, delivers, or brings into this state, or who is knowingly in actual or constructive possession of, 4 grams or more of any morphine, opium, oxycodone, hydrocodone, hydromorphone, or any salt, derivative, isomer, or salt of an isomer thereof, including heroin, as described in s. 893.03(1)(b), (2)(a), (3)(c)3., or (3)(c)4., or 4 grams or more of any mixture containing any such substance, but less than 30 kilograms of such substance or mixture, commits a felony of the first degree, which felony shall be known as "trafficking in illegal drugs," punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084. If the quantity involved:
a. Is 4 grams or more, but less than 14 grams, such person shall be sentenced to a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment of 3 years, and the defendant shall be ordered to pay a fine of $50,000.
.
The $50,000 fine? No big deal for the son of a Billonaire. The mandatory three years in jail, just for the heroin? Lil Vicki better get used to baloney sandwiches and visits from Bubba.
.
What a stupid, arrogant fuque. Between the fact he had the drugs on his person, the amount of heroin, Daddy's money and the fact he is a definite flight risk, I would say that there is a good chance this poor fuque will be denied bail.

As I told the ever perceptiveJAYearlier, there is a very good explanation for this travesty of #INJUSTICE.
.
Obviously, he was just carrying these because he wanted to comfort Lindsay with some gifts at the Gucci Lohan cremation ceremony/BBQ.

Lindsay was definitely working her ASS off for the drugs while "dating" him. Free room, board, probably not much sleeping at all.

Pimp's life is hard.

Well atleast this explains why the Dream Hotel is so f*cking hideous. I have been to Marble Lane the restaurant there a few times and the place looks like a crackhead designed it.
