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.

She was sacred, drunk and feared for her life that the pictures would show her stumbling drunk. So she loaded her two tun weapon and aimed it at the highway, speeding to get home before Oprah called about her upcoming photo shoot with her loser daughter. Thankfully the police caught her before her weapon killed any innocents.

This is so stupid it's brilliant. You know she will get a sweetheart deal and plead this down to nothing because the prosecution won't want to deal with this guy and his so called 'experts.' This defense makes me think someone has been taking notes from Franklin and Bash.

When it comes to the Lohans someone else is ALWAYS to blame. They seem to never take responsiblity for their own actions.
