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.

Funny, the cops never mentioned Dina being followed by any paps

What they did put in their report was that Dina could barely stand and she was slurring her words and blew over almost the third legal limit

Wow ...    

Wow, just wow. Throw in a WTF? It is no wonder Lilo has never taken responsibility. I mean if Dina was driven to DUI because of the paps, what must Lilo go through? SMH. FFS.

What absolute crap. Another stunningly stupid defense strategy from an incredibly obtuse Lawyer. Not to mention.. Dina seems to believe that being the mother of a celeb makes her one. Uhh.. no.

The only thing she's famous for.. let me correct that.. infamous for.. is being a horrific mother who exploits every single situation possible to get attention and money for herself. I don't see Johnny Depp's mother do this.. Mama Pitt? Mama Clooney? How bout Selena Gomez' mom? nope. Let's just go down the list.. Can you think of a single celeb who's mother so blatantly courts the press for attention.. then bitches about it driving her to drink? NO. Doesn't happen.

The woman's an alcoholic at the least. She needs to get some help and for all that's holy.. STFU and get OFF my 'net page. Seriously.

Alright!!! I want to see this buffoons law license! He can't even pronounce his clients name. It's DinA, NOT Deener. And that kind of excuse is exactly what I would expect from that family. Oh and Deener, nobody chases you for a picture, unless you are doing something that people wish to laugh at!

Does she actually think she is so famous the Paps follow her? What a joke this woman is. The only reason they follow her is she is Lindsay's mother and she's a moron.
