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.

'BIZARRE lawyer' for a bizarre family! I can't believe he used THAT as his defense. Dina thinking the paps follow her around is delusional. She is sooooo screwed!!

She obviously needs rehab if she's that drunk to believe that line of crap! I'm sorry, but the pap didn't force the booze down her throat, force her into a car and then said DRIVE!

This is ridiculous. No wonder why kids are becoming more and more messed up these days.. Parents are the issue. Not the kids. Show some dignity and respect to others please. This is just disgusting to read this excuse why she drove drunk. REALLY?! Kids are suppose to look up to parents! How is that possible these days..

It is so good to have the Lohans back again. Things were getting pretty boring on TMZ with all those lame stories about drunk football players and those babies they didn't know about.

Did this Bozo really even go to law school? I could have come up with a better defense myself than this clown!

He should have argued that Dina is incapable of making sound decisions on her own. After all, she DID hire Heller again!
