Many people thought she was drunk.
The Liz and Dick star was arrested in New York on November 29 allegedly for punching a 28-year-old female clubgoer in the face at the Avenue club in Manhattan. Before the incident, the woman, a palm reader from Florida, reportedly offered the actress a free reading.
With Lindsay Lohan’s history of substance and alcohol abuse, people inevitably assume that she’s drunk or under the influence when she runs into trouble. And with the Mean Girls star’s latest brush with the law, many think it was due to booze or drugs.
However, Lindsay’s lawyer, Mark Heller, rushed to her defense saying:
“I can tell you when I was with her this morning, she was in great condition…She was certainly not intoxicated, certainly not under the influence of drugs.”
The actress is set to appear in court in January. It will be another courtroom drama. In fairness, we loved Lindsay in Parent Trap.
