Lohan faces charges on both coasts
Fri, 11-30-2012 - 10:14am

Lindsay Lohan was charged Thursday with crimes in New York and Los Angeles, marking her latest setbacks as she tries to revive her career and avoid a return to jail.

Prosecutors in Santa Monica charged Lohan with three misdemeanors related to a June accident. Hours earlier, the actress was arrested and charged with third-degree assault after a woman was punched in a New York City nightclub.

The California charges came about six months after Lohan's Porsche crashed into the back of a dump truck. She told police her assistant was driving, but detectives now believe the actress was behind the wheel as she headed to a movie set.

She's just a hot mess. :S The girl definitely needs to do some hard time. She really needs to have done to her what the kids on that scared straight (or whatever it's called) show does. How they bring them to jail and truly scare them into behaving, etc.

No big surprise there. Just wondering how long it's going to be now before her mom makes it into the headlines again, too. You know she's got to keep up with her daughter, publicity wise. Doesn't matter to her if it's negative or positive; kind of makes it easier to see that Lindsay never had great examples in her life. 

Not that it excuses her own choices now, but when the foundation is cracked... it's harder to shore it back up!

East coast, west coast... at this rate, she's certainly not going to be able to outrun trouble much longer.
