Kate Major's DUI arrest last week began with a big lie, ended with her in cuffs, and featured A LOT OF CRYING in between.
As TMZ first reported, Major was busted for driving under the influence near her home in Florida following a blowout argument with boyfriend Michael Lohan.
THE INTERVIEW + FIRST TEST
The newly-released dashcam video begins after officers have pulled Major over and begun questioning her. When asked if she had been drinking ... Major flat out says no. As TMZ first reported, Major's BAC was .243 ... more than three times the legal limit in Florida.
Right when the officer began to conduct his first field sobriety test, Major began to break down crying.
WALK THE LINE AND ALPHABET TEST
Major was then given a walking test, which she seemed to do well on ... only the officer had not told her to start walking yet.
Then came the alphabet test ... which Major struggled with MAJORLY. She absolutely could not get past the letter V.
Once Major was done failing tests, the officer placed her under arrest and the waterworks began again BIG TIME.
Major was in court this morning where a judge ordered her to go to an in-patient rehab facility. When she gets out, she'll be forced to wear a tracking device.
Major will be released from jail some time in the next day or so, once she posts the $16,000 bond.

Lindsay Lohan just kicked a nanny's ass.
A nanny sued Lindsay -- claiming she was pushing a baby stroller in West Hollywood when LiLo recklessly drove her Maserati smack into her -- but she just folded like the cheap suit she takes to the dry cleaners.
TMZ broke the story ... Nubia Del Carmen Preza filed the lawsuit back in 2012 for personal injuries -- the baby was not hurt. But the case lingered and the nanny just threw in the towel ... that she uses to clean the kitchen.
The nanny has now dropped the lawsuit altogether ... and sources tell us the Nanny didn't get anything ... not even 99 cents that she could use at a discount store.
I Did NOT Do Coke With My Mom
2/19/2014 12:49 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
In the 10-15 times Lindsay Lohan did cocaine ... her mom was not sharing ... so claims her outraged lawyer.
Lindsay is pissed over a Fox News Channel segment, in which the host says, "Lindsay Lohan's mom is doing cocaine with her." Attorney Mark Heller says it's a lie.
Heller wrote a letter to FNC, saying it's shocking that Lindsay and her mom were lumped in with the various celebs who died of ODs.
Heller claimed the FNC host was trying to "maliciously foreshadow to the viewers that the Commentators could 'see it coming.'" In other words, he's saying the message was that Lindsay would bite the dust just like Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Lindsay's lawyer suggests that reports like these create an "emotional weakening" for celebs who have a big drug problem. Good thing Lindsay's been coke free except for a dozen or so times.
Michael Lohan's Baby Mama
He Threatened to Stab Me
'I'm Gonna Kill You Bitch'
2/18/2014 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
11:20 A.M. PT -- Kate just told TMZ she lied about the threats, saying "I regretfully tweeted while my emotions were high that I was being threatened by Michael with a knife, this was not the case." Major tells us she made it up because she feared Michael would take her son away.
Michael Lohan went ballistic and brandished a knife last night during his fight with baby mama Kate Major saying, "I'm going to kill you, bitch!" -- at least that's what Kate told cops -- but Michael's 911 call tells a different story.
TMZ has obtained the police report regarding the altercation last night at Michael's Florida house ... after Michael called 911, claiming Kate was drunk and acting erratically around their one-year-old son.
According to the report, when police arrived, Kate told them Michael had falsely accused her of drinking around their baby and a fight broke out. That's when Kate claims Michael grabbed a knife and threatened to kill her with it.
Kate told police she locked herself in a bedroom to get away from him ... and he tried to kick the door down. When he failed, Kate claims Michael went outside to the bedroom's sliding glass doors and made stabbing gestures at her.
Kate claims she tried to call police ... but her phone was broken ... even though she still managed to send out a bunch of tweets.
Police spoke to Michael too -- he denied threatening Kate in any way -- and his 911 call paints a very calm and calculating picture ... almost like he and Kate have lots and lots of experience calling 911 on each other.

Sources close to the couple tell us Michael is the one who called 911 when Kate started acting erratically ... and locked herself in the room.
We're told officers want one of them to leave the house immediately -- but Michael isn't budging because he thinks Kate is drunk ... and doesn't want to leave her with the baby.
We just spoke to Michael who claims Kate's been drinking again ... and it got so bad she tried to kill herself over the weekend. Lohan tells us he's worried about the welfare of their child and says he'll attempt to get custody of their son if she doesn't get help.
During Kate's twitter rant ... she addressed the suicide saying, "Someone trying to kill u is worse than trying to kill yourself ! #udontscareme."
Kate also vowed to never let Michael take their son away from her.

On the Edge of Incredible
She Crushes Stevie Nicks Live [VIDEO]
2/12/2014 10:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
It's the first glimmer of pre-meltdown Lindsay Lohan we've seen in a long time -- she took the stage last night at some financier's NYC birthday to perform a classic Stevie Nicks song ... and she hit it out of the park.
Lindsay was at the Four Seasons -- where NY Republican Party Finance Committee chairman Matthew Mellon was celebrating his 50th birthday -- and she sang Stevie's "Edge of Seventeen" for the crowd.
Lindsay's had a love affair with "Edge of Seventeen" for years -- she's performed it live before and even featured a cover of the song on her 2005 album "A Little More Personal" ... a year after starring in "Mean Girls."
But now that you've seen the video ... and it appears Lindsay is cleaning herself up ... we gotta ask ...
Michael Lohan to Dina
Write Your Damn Book
But I'm Getting a Deal Too
2/3/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Looks like the Lohan clan is headed for an all out book-off ... 'cause TMZ has learned, Michael Lohan is now considering giving Dina Lohan the green light for her tell-all ... with one big fat string attached -- he gets his own book deal.
As we first reported ... Michael put the legal kibosh on Dina's book by reminding her there's a gag order from their divorce ... so she'd have to leave out plenty of the juicy details.
But now we're told Michael struck a deal with Dina's publishers at Birdstreet Books -- he'll sign a legal doc releasing Dina from the gag order ... if the company gives him his own book deal.
We're told Birdstreet already has what they believe is a lucrative contract for Michael to sign -- but it's not lucrative enough... so he's holding out.
The only real loser in this deal ... Lindsay -- of course.
I'm Gonna Work For Convicted Coke Smugglers
1/31/2014 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lindsay Lohan has no problem collecting a paycheck from convicted cocaine smugglers ... TMZ has learned.
Sources close to Lindsay tell us ... it's inconceivable that she'd bail out of the film, "Inconceivable" ... despite reports the money men -- who've backed several Hollywood movies, including "Lone Survivor" with Mark Wahlberg -- were convicted of coke trafficking.
L.A. Weekly reported the men -- Remington Chase and Stepan Martirosyan -- were convicted in 1993. There were even allegations they put a hit out on a guy in Moscow.
Our Lindsay source tells us ... she was in the dark about the guys until recently ... but she's never run from coke before ... so she's doing the movie -- period.
Here's her thinking -- film financing is a business matter and of no concern to an actor.
At least she has a crack team behind her.
My $75K Fur Is Missing

Lindsay Lohan claims half of her $75K coat went missing at a New York nightclub ... and it's the SAME club where she walked out with someone else's hugely expensive coat 6 years before.
We've learned Lindsay was partying at 1Oak Wednesday night. She says she went in with a $75,000 2 piece fur coat.
Lindsay claims she walked out with only one of the 2 pieces on ... and when she realized she left the other half inside she went back but it was nowhere to be seen.
We're told Lindsay called almost everyone who was at her table ... to see if anyone had walked off with the half-a-coat or knew its whereabouts.
Sources tell us ... Lindsay claims the only person who she hasn't been able to contact is a Seahawks player ... who she says was at her table.
As for the prior incident ... you may recall Lindsay was at 1Oak in 2008 when she walked out with someone's $12,000 mink coat. The owner sued Lindsay.
Lindsay Lohan ... making the case for faux fur.
