Dina Lohan

The Paparazzi Caused Her

To Drive Drunk

breaking news

102313_dina_exit_launch_v2 Dina Lohan drove totally wasted and it's all because the paparazzi drove her to the bottle and then the steering wheel ... this according to her bizarre lawyer.

Dina and her lawyer, Mark Heller, appeared for a routine hearing in her drunk driving case, and then Heller offered up the indefensible defense.

Here's the argument ... Dina's lifestyle presents lots of challenges and stress, brought on by the barrage of photogs that follow her.  Those stresses caused Dina to down enough alcohol to register a .20 blood alcohol level as she tooled down the road.  Short story -- it's our fault, not hers.

You may remember Heller.  He was literally run out of L.A. after getting fired in the Lindsay Lohan shoplifting case. 

Heller hopes that the judge will take his argument under consideration in Dina's DWI case.

Hope springs eternal.

These losers never take accountability for their actions, ever. The paps caused her to drink her way to a .20, which is a super drunk case in most states now. Take your medicine DUIna, you are not getting out of a drunk driving case. Just drag it on. Like mother like junkie. She's still going to end up with the same first time offender sentence but this family, god they are so full of it it's ridiculous. Blaming the paps, FFS!!!!

I for one am stunned she's reaching for wine. I really thought she was sober and really, really, really, really learned her lesson this time and was serious. No sober coach. Does Oprah know about any of this? She does now as well as her disrespecting a bar and throwing a temper tantrum, insisting they stay open until 6, and locking herself in and calling the police. She belongs in a mental ward for years. What a vile creature, the entire family. Everything is fine, eh MiLo? But lol, how fuming mad is she right now with someone having the nerve to take a picture? BUSTED Blo! I hope Oprah will can her, and what is Oprah's level of tolerance with her? Oprah deserves what she asked for.
