Dina Lohan

The Paparazzi Caused Her

To Drive Drunk

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.

Hahaha, I bet his next story to excuse her own actions and behavior is going to include bigfoot somewhere in it. Between Lindsay and Dina he's used just about every other ridiculous excuse he could think of.

LOL!Dina hires the same attorney that Lindsay fired. Her lifestyle challenges and made her drink and drive?Of course there was also the excuse of the paparazzi bothering her. The only one who should be drinking is the judge after he hears this imbecile excuse. I hope they do not give her back her drivers license. Dina is an accident waiting to happen and some innocent person shouldn't lose
their life because she's behind the wheel. Dina is a danger to Long Island and society in general.

Last night on "Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Andy Samberg's egotistical character kissed a strange and weird precinct female admin assistant character on the forehead. Here's the conversation:

Andy: "What does your skin taste like?"

Admin Asst: "Dina Lohan. I'm wearing her face lotion."

My many interpretations!!

Are you jealous, Lindsay?

Yeah, it's a high-stress life, alright, trying to figure out each day how to get by without working, mooching off your kids.

Mark Heller will be what comes to mind when you think about a sleazeball attorney who you should never place your life in his hands.
With all the money these so called rich and famous have you would think they would be articulate to speak for themselves. Take a class!

This is totally illogical. Two weeks ago DUIna was filmed traipsing the streets of Manhattan jogging, riding those Citibank bikes and drinking Coca-Cola. The entire scenario was in the presence of a camera crew.

That Heller would blame the Paps on her "fearful" reaction to their presence just doesn't really stand up.

If she is a seasoned"entertainer" on first name basis with Billy Bush and Mario and the like and has been on t.v. with them, then why would they be stressful to her?

Is it any wonder with statements like that why people despise lawyers so much? These defense lawyers never have to PROVE their idiotic statements. They just toss them out there and hope to find stupid jurors who might say, "Yeah, that's reasonable." They hit the juror jackpot with the OJ and Casey Anthony jurors.
